It's official, the open-world action-adventure Immortals Fenyx Rising (formerly known as Gods & Monsters) is coming to the Nintendo Switch on 3rd December. It seems that the Microsoft Store listing from last week was correct.
As previously noted, this new IP - "taking grand mythological adventure to new heights" - has been developed by the team at Ubisoft Quebec (Assassin's Creed Odyssey). Players take control of Fenyx, a new winged demigod who must save the Greek gods and their home from a dark curse.
Here's a bit more from the official PR, along with some screens and a gameplay walkthrough:
Only by mastering the legendary powers of the gods, overcoming heroic trials and confronting powerful mythological beasts, will Fenyx be able to take on Typhon, the deadliest Titan in Greek mythology.
An exhilarating experience for all heroes at heart, the game features dynamic action gameplay, fast-paced aerial and melee combat and stories inspired by Greek mythology. Players will face off against mythological creatures like the Cyclops, Minotaur and Medusa. With the help of the Sword of Achilles, Bow of Odysseus and Wings of Daidalos, players will launch themselves up into the air to deal with the immensity of these creatures. In addition to combat, players’ logic and strategy will be challenged by world puzzles, from small scale individual puzzles all the way up to the epic Vaults of Tartaros.
Immortals Fenyx Rising is an uplifting and witty take on the open world action adventure genre and is full of rewarding exploration through dynamic traversal. Sprint across open fields, climb enormous mountains, and glide through the skies to discover all the secrets of the seven unique regions inspired by the Greek Gods across the Golden Isle.
In Immortals Fenyx Rising, players will be able to make Fenyx their own with a wide range of customization options available. Progression is varied, centered on the Hall of the Gods where players can upgrade Fenyx’s health, stamina or god-given abilities. In addition to upgrading Fenyx, the weapons, armor, and potions used can also be enhanced by defeating enemies and opening chests throughout the world.
The journey will be as challenging and rewarding as the destination, and players will emerge as the heroes they are meant to become.
