According to an accidental early listing on the Microsoft Store and Amazon Prime, Ubisoft’s Greek mythology-inspired Immortals: Fenyx Rising will be releasing in December of this year. While the store listing has since been taken down, a number of new screenshots and information about the game has been leaked. An official synopsis for the game was also available during the game’s shortlisting life on the Microsoft Store, including details about the main character. Starring the demigod Fenix, players will need to save the ancient Greek gods from an impending danger.
Fenix will be able to utilize the powers of gods that he has rescued, earning special abilities that will allow him to fly, use telekinesis or shoot homing light arrows to defeat enemies. Players will be able to explore the seven different major areas of the game as they travel, each based on a separate god of the ancient Greek mythos. The deleted store page detailed a bit more about the game, “play as Fenyx, on a quest to save the Greek gods from a dark curse. Wield the powers of the gods to battle powerful mythological beasts in the air or on the ground, and solve ancient puzzles. The fate of the world is at stake – you are the gods’ last hope.”
