Immortals Fenyx Rising – 6 Things You Need To Know

Immortals Fenyx Rising – formerly known as Gods & Monsters – made a big splash during Ubisoft Forward, showing off a revamped look to complement its lighthearted action approach to Greek mythology. The open-world adventure focuses on Fenyx, a customizable hero fated to become a powerful winged demigod, as they battle to save the gods from the evil Titan Typhon.

Set in a vibrant landscape filled with secrets, puzzles, and monsters, Immortals Fenyx Rising unfolds as a story told by Prometheus to Zeus, who refuses to take any of it seriously. The duo’s bickering works like a running commentary on the gameplay, as Prometheus narrates Fenyx’s exploits and Zeus cracks wise.

The World is Diverse and Dynamic

The Golden Isle is an immense open world, with distinct regions patterned after specific Greek gods. This is the lair of Typhon, the most dangerous of all Titans, who has cursed and imprisoned the gods themselves, and spread his curse across the Golden Isle.

We explored one region during our time with the game: the Forgelands, a rocky landscape of cliffs and canyons lorded over by the blacksmith god Hephaistos. Something bad has clearly happened here; not only is the place infested with monsters, but the massive forge complex that dominates the center of the region is choked with Typhon’s crystalline red corruption.

Fenyx’s Godly Powers Are Devastating

The wings – which are also great for gliding quickly above the landscape and cushioning falls at the last second – are among a number of items and abilities Fenyx will gain early on, elevating them above a mere mortal.

Fenyx can also draw on Herakles’s Strength to telekinetically grab, lift, and throw heavy objects, which plays a key role in solving many of the game’s physics-driven puzzles. And Apollo’s Arrows let Fenyx remote-control arrows in flight, even adjusting their speed to precisely hit difficult targets.

Combat Is Fast, Acrobatic, and Frequently Against Huge Foes

Since many of your foes are gigantic, and because smaller enemies will rapidly surround you and attack, Fenyx’s fighting style is quick, versatile, and acrobatic. Light sword attacks can inflict quick flurries of damage, heavy axe attacks can break through shields (and eventually dizzy some enemies), and a well-aimed arrow shot can do immense damage to unsuspecting enemies. Executing a perfect dodge will slow time, giving you a brief window to unleash a few uncontested combos; and parrying an attack can knock your foes off-balance and render them momentarily helpless.

The Vaults of Tartaros Are Puzzle-Filled Pocket Dimensions

Dotted across the landscape are glowing red holes in the ground that look like miniature versions of Typhon’s volcano. These are Tartaros Rifts, and diving into them brings Fenyx to otherworldly dungeons where players will need to solve elaborate, multi-stage environmental puzzles and/or battle waves of enemies to reclaim a piece of Zeus’ lightning. Finding a Tartaros Rift is always a sure sign that something interesting is just a leap into the unknown away.

Corrupted Heroes Will Hunt You

Defeat enough enemies or clear certain challenges, and you might provoke Typhon’s rage. As the sky itself reddens, Typhon’s volcano at the center of the Golden Isle erupts with red-hot boulders, and the gigantic wraiths of Greek mythology’s fallen heroes will begin to hunt you relentlessly. More corrupted heroes will come for Fenyx throughout the game, and defeating them quells Typhon’s rage – but only for a time.

Secrets Are Everywhere

Immortals Fenyx Rising will direct you to its major story quests, but any hand-holding ends there; the treasures, challenges, and vaults of the Golden Isle are up to you to discover.
