Immortals Fenyx Rising brings gods and monsters to our screens today

Formerly Gods & Monster Energy- I mean, Gods & Monsters

Here it comes, Ubisoft's next big game release to keep you entertained over the holidays. Immortals Fenyx Rising arrives today, bringing with it a Breath Of The Wild-like open world, some gods, some monsters, and - importantly - lots of giant, powerful women.

It's a mythological adventure where you play as young Fenyx (which I have only just realised is pronounced like "Phoenix" and not "Fennix") who has to save the Greek gods from some nasty curse.

I've had my eye on this one for a little while. I bounced off of BOTW pretty quickly, but Immortals seems to have nabbed the good bits from it and mixed in a load of cool mythology, which is right up my alley.

Formerly named Gods & Monster Energy Monsters, the game will have you wandering throughout a big Zelda-meets-Assassin's Creed-style world, fighting mythological beasts and solving ancient puzzles.

It's pretty good, too. In her Immortals Fenyx Rising review, Alice Bee says: "It's a fun, family-friendly, imaginative action game that can get a bit grindy, but is still here to save your Christmas."

Immortals Fenyx Rising launches later today on the Epic Games Store and UPlay, priced at £50/$60.

If you reckon you'll be jumping into it today, we've already got guides to help you out - like this one, which details all the best gear in Immortals Fenyx Rising.
