The creators of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey weren’t quite done with Ancient Greece, it seems, as a new team at Ubisoft Quebec headed up by Senior Producer Marc-Alexis Cote today revealed Gods & Monsters. It will be coming out on 25th February 2020, though platforms aren’t known.
Featuring a wonderful animated film art style in its cinematic announcement trailer, it promises to be a storybook adventure about a forgotten hero in Greek mythology. As the trailer says, when humans are in trouble they look to the gods, but when the gods are in trouble, they look to you.
To save the pantheon of Greek gods, you have to fight off mythological creatures and their leader in a titanic battle (it might not actually be a Titan, but we’ll see). It sounds like it will be open world, as you explore it and tackle trials, dungeons and perform heroic feats.
Despite being out in under a year, Ubisoft were surprisingly tight-lipped about what the game actually entails. Hopefully we’ll find out more soon.
A few more details about Gods & Monsters have been revealed. The forgotten hero you play as is called Fenyx and their mission is to take down the most fearsome of all the Greek monsters Typhon. Typhon won’t be the only monster Fenyx must beat as the Isle of the Blessed is full of monsters loyal to Typhon, as well as lots of puzzles to solves and dungeons to navigate. PS4 is a confirmed platform and it wouldn’t be surprising to see the game on PC and Xbox One at least with a possible Switch release too. After all Ubisoft has been very supportive of Nintendo’s console.
