Ubisoft streamed over an hour of Immortals Fenyx Rising following its re-reveal earlier in the week, and it goes without saying that this is our best look at the open world game yet. The video’s got general exploration, combat, and quite a bit of puzzle solving.
While we do think that the screen’s a bit cluttered at times — particularly during some fights — there’s definitely promise here. And if you’ve played Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, you’ll notice that there are a lot of similarities. It even looks like Fenyx — the customisable protagonist — shares some animations with Odyssey’s sibling heroes. Not a huge surprise considering Immortals is being developed by the same team.
But the best way to describe Immortals is Odyssey meets The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The inclusion of physics-based puzzles screams Nintendo’s open world blockbuster, and the colourful art style certainly gives off a similar vibe here and there.
