'Gods & Monsters' is the latest from the 'AC: Odyssey' team

Emmett Howard | 12 June, 2019, 19:55

Senior Producer at Ubisoft Quebec, Marc-Alexis Côté, talked about where the idea for Gods and Monsters came from, citing the studio's previous project, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, as one of the biggest reasons for the company's creation of this new game.

Despite being out in under a year, Ubisoft were surprisingly tight-lipped about what the game actually entails.

To save the pantheon of Greek gods, you have to fight off mythological creatures and their leader in a titanic battle (it might not actually be a Titan, but we'll see).

Gods & Monsters is set to release on February 25, 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia. Though it isn't officially tied to any existing games, it looks as if it takes the recent mythology-focused expansions to games like Assassin's Creed Origins and Odyssey and run with it.

Players will be tasked with helping the Greek gods regain the throne of Olympus, having been thrown down by the deadliest of all monsters, Typhon.

Gods & Monsters takes place on the Isle of the Blessed, which is far from a sun-baked Greek holiday resort. However, Fenyx is able to obtain the Gods' blessing by completing various feats, which reward you with unique powers to aid you in your adventure. What do you think of the game's painted art style?
