Ubisoft ended their E3 2019 presentation with a quick glimpse at the new game from the developers behind Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and it looks very different…
The Ubisoft press conference at E3 ended with something new, though it didn’t take the time to explain it. It’s from the same team behind last year’s highly successful Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, but it couldn’t look more different:
Sure you’ll be dealing with Greek mythology, but that seems to be where the similarities between those games end. This time around you’ll be tasked with SAVING the gods as you battle familiar monsters in a new open-world action game.
In Gods & Monsters, the Greek gods have fallen, and it’s up to Fenyx, a hero forgotten by myth, to see them take their place atop Mt. Olympus once again. The Isle of the Blessed has been taken over by Typhon – the deadliest of all Greek monsters – and you’ll need to defeat him and his army of dangerous mythological beasts to restore order. To accomplish this, you’ll have to overcome puzzling trials, traverse treacherous dungeons, take on legendary quests, and battle Greek mythology’s most lethal monsters in this open-world action adventure.
“Over the last 10 years, I have had the chance to be part of an incredible team that has pushed the limits of Assassin’s Creed to explore historical periods from a unique angle,” says Marc-Alexis Côté, senior producer at Ubisoft Quebec. “But our imagination has always been bound to the reality of the history books. Through our work on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey these past four years, our minds have lingered on another aspect of our history – mythology. Today, with Gods & Monsters, the tales we all love and know so well become a reality to be explored like never before.”
Gods & Monsters is coming to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Uplay+, and Stadia on February 25. 2020.
