Ubisoft announced their much-rumoured Zelda: Breath of the Wild-style adventure game, Gods & Monsters, coming from Ubisoft Quebec, the team behind the sublime Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The title has been given a release date of February 25th, 2020, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and Ubisoft's subscription service, Uplay+.
The game was announced alongside a beautiful trailer that definitely evoked the colourful, painterly vibes that made Breath of the Wild such a treat to play. Check out the lovely trailer below.
Gods & Monsters has a description on the official Ubisoft website that tells us a lot more about the game than the trailer.
"In Gods & Monsters, the Greek gods have fallen, and it's up to Fenyx, a hero forgotten by myth, to see them take their place atop Mt. Olympus once again. The Isle of the Blessed has been taken over by Typhon – the deadliest of all Greek monsters – and you'll need to defeat him and his army of dangerous mythological beasts to restore order. To accomplish this, you'll have to overcome puzzling trials, traverse treacherous dungeons, take on legendary quests, and battle Greek mythology's most lethal monsters in this open-world action adventure."
"In addition to relying on your own formidable capabilities, you'll need to seek help from the gods and their divine powers, every one of which you'll need to wield to defeat Typhon and his army of gorgons, harpies, cyclopes, and other mythical monsters across a lush, mysterious open world with a look that evokes painted storybooks."
