Why did Immortals: Fenyx Rising become Gods and Monters?.
Scott Philips, head of development at Immortals: Fenyx Rising, talked a bit about what decisions they had to make over the past year.
It may have confused many at first when Ubisoft recently started mentioning Immortals: Fenyx Rising, while we hadn’t heard of a game with that name before. Of course, it quickly became clear that the previously announced Gods and Mondters had been given a new name – the game’s game director said it wasn’t just to keep Ubisoft from receiving the most unimaginative video game title award.
Scott Philips said at the end of 2019, they had the opportunity to spend more time with the game, so the whole team, along with all the heads, went through it and then started brainstorming what was still needed in terms of narrative, visuals and gameplay.
It was then decided that much more emphasis would be placed on the protagonist, Fenyx. As a result of this decision, he was also included in the title of the game, thus emphasizing the important role assigned to him.
“At the beginning of the game and adventure – as Prometheus tells the story of Fenyx – the hero will be on a ship from Margolis carrying a lot of soldiers. They are shipwrecked. They get lost on the shores of Golden Isle, a mysterious island with a Greek god. Hermes reveals a prophecy that Fenyx will be the only person who can save the Greek gods from the destruction of Typhon, the supreme enemy. “
Philips said in an interview.
Of course, at first the gods will also receive man in their circles with skepticism, but as the adventure progresses, we will increasingly prove our heroism and gain the respect of the Olympians.
Philips also talked about the protagonist’s customizability, as we can change his look not only at the beginning of the game, but also during the adventure. This, too, managed to find a great explanation, as the transformation takes place in the “hairdresser’s chair of the gods,” which is their means of taking on a different shape but making it available to Fenyx.
Chicken has already had the opportunity to try Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and based on his experience, we can expect a truly outstanding adventure on the third of December, when the ancient adventure finally lands on store shelves.
