Immortals Fenyx Rising (originally known as Gods and Monsters) is an action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Quebec and published by Ubisoft. The game was released for Amazon Luna, Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X and S on December 3, 2020.
The story is told in narration by the gods Prometheus and Zeus, and tells the journey of Fenyx on her way to save her brother turned to stone, and become embroiled on the escape of the evil Typhon.
Immortals is an action-adventure video game played from a third-person perspective. At the beginning of the game, players can customize the gender, voice, and the appearances of Fenyx using Aphrodite’s Beauty Chair. At any point in the game, they can return to the beauty chair and customize Fenyx. The game is set in a large open world, consisting of seven distinct regions inspired by the Greek gods. The player character is accompanied by a companion bird named Phosphor, which can identify locations of interest on the map. Fenyx can traverse the world quickly through climbing cliffs, riding on a mount, and flying using the wings of Daedalus. The full open world will be accessible from the start of the game. As players explore the world, they would encounter rifts which would teleport them to the Vaults of Tartaros, which are a series of platforming challenges that require players to utilize both Fenyx’s combat and traversal abilities. Players can also complete various side-objectives and optional puzzles.
The world of the Golden Isles are occupied with various enemies inspired by Greek mythology, including minotaurs to cyclopes. There are two modes of melee attack; light attacks with a sword are fast but weak, and heavy attacks with an axe are slow but strong. Fenyx can also use bows and arrows to defeat enemies. Players need to manage Fenyx’s stamina during combat, as they will become exhausted when they attack successively. As players progress in the game, they would be able to unlock powerful godlike abilities. For instance, Fenyx can unlock Ares’ Wrath, a group of spears that thrust enemies into the air. Armor and weapons can also be upgraded by collecting sufficient crafting resources in the game’s world.
After spending eons imprisoned under a mountain by Zeus, Typhon manages to escape and takes his revenge on the Olympian gods, severing them from their godly essences and robbing them of their powers. Zeus flees and meets Prometheus, seeking to secure his aid in battling Typhon. Prometheus instead makes a wager with Zeus that if Typhon can be beaten by a mortal, then he will be freed from his imprisonment. Otherwise, Prometheus will agree to help Zeus. Prometheus then uses his power of foresight to tell the story of Fenyx.
Fenyx, a young Greek shield-bearer of the Delian League, barely survives a shipwreck and washes up on the Golden Isle. He (or she if the player chooses to make them a female instead) is shocked to find that the surviving crew and the Golden Isle’s residents have all turned to stone. After recovering several artifacts belonging to legendary Greek heroes and receiving a prophecy, Fenyx rescues a young stranger who later turns out to be Hermes, who informs him about the situation and the grave threat Typhon poses, as he seeks to break the barrier between the mortal realm and Tartaros and reform the world in his own image. Determined to stop Typhon and save humanity, Fenyx agrees to venture out into the Golden Isle to restore the deposed Olympian gods. Through his efforts, Fenyx befriends a magical bird companion named Phosphor and manages to restore Aphrodite (who became a tree without her passion), Ares (who turned into a rooster without pride), Hephaistos (who became one of his automatons without suffering), and Athena (who turned into a child with no judgement). Fenyx also defeats the spirits of Achilles, Atalanta, Herakles, and Odysseus, who had all been corrupted by Typhon.
