Gods and Monsters’ New Name Revealed!

Gods and Monsters’ New Name Revealed!

The title of being the most fascinating and popular mythology in the world certainly goes to Greek mythology.

Whenever there’s an adaptation of the many famous Greek stories in the medium of entertainment, whether it be games, movies, shows, or even anime for the matter, one can be sure to find millions of people looking to experience it!

And this statement stands true in the gaming spectrum too!

Just take a look at Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, for example! It may not be the best RPG or the best Assassin’s Creed title in the series, considering how the franchise seems to have forgotten its roots, but one thing it nails is its setting.

By far, the game has the most accurate depiction of Greek mythology, and you know what? People gobbled that up! It goes to show that there’s a genuine hunger for all things Greek in the world.

And, as if to relieve fans from the problem, Ubisoft announced a new IP under Gods and Monsters’ name, back in E3 2019.

Now, from what we could gather from the trailer, it’s pretty clear that the team over at Ubisoft may have felt restricted by the need for historical accuracy at certain aspects in the Assassin’s Creed series.

And this may be an attempt to realize the potential that Greek history and mythology holds, and explore the realms of fantasy properly!

Whatever the case may be, one thing that we know as a matter of fact is that the new IP’s name won’t be Gods and Monsters.

We may even know what the actual name of the game might be!

Well, what is it then?

Recently, a Taiwan game rating committee rated a game from Ubisoft under the name of Immortals: Fenyx Rising.

Now, the reason why this may be the new title for Gods and Monsters is that it was already announced that the game would be delayed.

Also, the protagonist’s name is Fenyx in this one, so you probably get why we think so.

Even in the recent Ubisoft Forward, there was no mention of this upcoming title, further cementing the delay.

Not to mention, on Stadia, when the game was leaked, Ubisoft called it a game “Formerly known as Gods and Monsters” when interviewed by Kotaku.

While the game does not appear to be coming anytime soon, it’s news such as this that keeps the fans excited and holds them in anticipation of a game!

And let’s be honest here for a second, Immortals: Fenyx Rising is most certainly a better-sounding name than something generic like Gods and Monsters!

About Immortals: Fenyx Rising

From the creators of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey comes another adventurous tale set right in the middle of Greek Mythology, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, previously known as Gods and Monsters.

Inspired by games such as The Legend of Zelda, Ubisoft describes it as a “Storybook Adventure” full of mythical and fantastic creatures, where you, the titular protagonist Fenyx, must save the Greek gods by overcoming everything the world throws at you!
