announced Gods & MonstersTM, an all-new action-adventure game developed by
Ubisoft Quebec, the team behind Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey, will launch worldwide
on February 25, 2020. This open world fantasy adventure features a beautiful
painted art style, engaging players in a fantastical world as they use godlike
abilities to defeat famed mythological beasts and save the Greek gods in a
heroic journey for the ages.
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.
A storybook adventure at heart, Gods & Monsters features a lively and colorful
open world to discover. Players will roam freely on the ground and glide in the
air, taking advantage of their extraordinary abilities to explore this vibrant
world full of surprises, epic battles, quests and fantastical creatures. The
journey will be as challenging and rewarding as the destination, and players
will emerge as the heroes they were meant to become.
“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 be available for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment
system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, Windows PC,
Nintendo Switch™ system and new generation gaming platform, Stadia on February
Gods & Monsters will also be available on Uplay+, Ubisoft’s subscription
service. More details on Uplay+ can be found on Uplay.com*.
