While we did not receive any news on a future Assassin’s Creed title at Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press briefing, the team at Ubisoft Quebec is working on something related. The folks who brought us Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey are now working on Gods & Monsters.
The first thing you’ll notice about Gods & Monsters is its unique art style. In a complete departure of the typical Ubisoft style, this is a whimsical, cute, and very colorful representation of an open world. It’s not all sunshine and roses, however, as mythological creatures abound and mysteries are ready to be solved.
In Gods & Monsters players embody Fenyx, a forgotten hero on a quest to restore power to the Greek gods after it was stolen by Typhon, the deadliest creature in Greek mythology. Players will explore the Isle of the Blessed and prove their heroism as they face dangerous mythological creatures, including fearsome Gorgons and Harpies and mighty Cyclopes. Gifted with special powers from the gods of Olympus, players must overcome treacherous dungeons, challenging trials and perform heroic feats on their journey to save the gods.
“Over the last 10 years, I have had the chance to be part of an incredible team that has pushed the limits of Assassin’s Creed to explore historical periods from a unique angle. But our imagination has always been bound to the reality of the history books. Through our work on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey these past four years, our minds have lingered on another aspect of our history – mythology. Today, with Gods & Monsters, the tales we all love and know so well become a reality to be explored like never before,” said Marc-Alexis Côté, senior producer at Ubisoft Quebec.
Gods & Monsters will launch on February 25, 2020, on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. It will also be included in the just announced Uplay+ subscription service.
