During this year’s E3, Ubisoft unveiled an interesting new title that’s got us excited to share with you today. The new game, titled Gods and Monsters, is due to release early next year from the creators of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and from the trailer, it looks stunning.
We only have a vague idea of what this game will entail so far but from the looks of the trailer, it’s going to be very picturesque and include a lot of captivating combat.
Gods and Monsters Release Date
We already know when this title will land February 25th, 2020. Thankfully, this isn’t too long of a time left to wait for those of us who are excited to play. Hopefully, more information should surface in the lead up to release.
The trailer shows a vast landscape that looks like it could have come straight from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild series. In what appears to be a fantasy setting we can see lush greenery, vast landscapes, and get a general sense of the overall style the game will take.
Information from Ubisoft tells us a little more of the epic story we will be a part of. You’ll set out as a fully customizable hero with the aim of helping out a variety of Greek gods through the main story. Expect to see a well-known cast of gods on display here, but don’t be surprised if you end up learning something new along the way!
Gods and Monsters Gameplay
From the art style and game type, this looks like it’s going to be an interesting take on the hack and slash formula. As it is being developed by the same studio that brought us Assassin’s Creed Odyssey we’re expecting some tight, focused swordplay as well as maybe some utilization of the ancient greek history that this team gathered during the development of Odyssey!
Ubisoft has also mentioned that apart from the combat, the world will showcase a number of tricky puzzles that the player has to solve to progress. Combining this with the lore we’ll see in Gods & Monsters should make for something a little different than the standard kinds of puzzles we’re used to seeing.
With the gameplay taking place on the picture-perfect “Isle of the Blessed” we look forward to seeing just how much of an open world we have to explore. As with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, exploring a beautifully crafted world was what drew a lot of people to those games in the first place.
The premise of this game looks extremely interesting, I’ve always got room for more open-world games in my life, especially if it has anything to do with mythical creatures, ancient lore or gods. There isn’t much information at the moment on how big or long this game will be but with it being a Ubisoft game I’d expect a decent length and price tag to go along with it.
With no official gameplay shown as of yet, we’re hoping that it is to the same standard as we’re used to from developers Ubisoft. Let us know what you think, are you excited to buy this game based on-premise and developer name alone, or will you wait until the initial reviews pour in until committing?
