Gods & Monsters is a lavish mythical adventure about a hero who’s on a quest to save the gods. Graphically reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, its rolling hills and lush landscapes entice you into a land long forgotten. Explore an open world with different biomes including the cavernous depths of the underworld and plenty of mythical creatures to vanquish.
Gods & Monsters is being developed by Ubisoft who also created Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey and it looks like they’ve followed the same format with another open-world epic. However, it’s not about a Spartan hero this time instead, you play Fenyx who has to save the Olympians from the deadly Typhon.
Battle epic creatures like the Minotaurs, Gorgons, and Cyclops to reach your ultimate foe, a grisly flame breathing monster with many heads; banished to the underworld by Zeus. Your quest is to seek and destroy it but there are puzzles to solve and rare items to find on the way like the boots of Hermes. There might even be some RPG elements to the video game as well.
There’s also advanced movement mechanics allowing you to double and triple jump when fighting baddies with your trusty sword and winged boots. You can explore the mythical world freely with no set order to the quests allowing you to roam the beautiful landscapes and discover new items.
Gods & Monsters sounds like an ambitious project with an expansive open world and similar cell shading aesthetics to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Ubisoft is being tight-lipped about there new project but let’s hope that there’s some good gameplay and RPG mechanics to complement their mythical world.
