Gods And Monsters
When Ubisoft released the trailer back in 2019, it didn’t reveal much about the game’s plot and features. Gods and Monsters is an open-world action-adventure game developed by Ubisoft Quebec Studios. The game is full of epic battles and quests. Roam freely in a beautiful fantasy world, exploring cities while saving the Greek Gods from annihilation. While exploring the world, you’ll hear the Greek poet Homer narrating the whole thing. Therefore, Homer will be your guide as you venture into the mythical world.
Gods and Monsters were originally scheduled to release in February 2020. However, due to several other games in the pipeline, it was delayed. According to Ubisoft’s Q4 2020 Financial Report, the game will release sometime in July 2020. The exact date is yet unknown.
- The game will be releasing on Playstation 5, Xbox X, PS 4, Windows (PC), Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
The game is a storybook adventure set on the Isle of the Blessed, an island filled with mystical beings. However, the game’s core focus will be the Greek Mythology. According to the storyline, the Olympians have been defeated by Typhon, the most deadly creature in Greek mythology
The Typhoon has released all the minions from the Greek underworld into the world of Gods and Monsters. Your job will be to save the Greek gods by taking on tricky challenges, dangerous dungeons, and heroic trials. Throughout the game, you will have to battle Cyclopses, Gorgons, and Hydras.
The Gods of Olympus have given you special powers which you will use to fight and explore on the ground as well as in the air. Your goal will be to remove the minions from your world as well as the Typhon himself.
From what we have gathered from the trailer, the combat is not only grounded but will take place in the air as well. You can use abilities in mid-air to deal with damage to the flying creatures or get to higher places. Gods and Monsters is a platform game where you have to time your jumps while watching your stamina a the same time.
You can escape enemies trying to hurt you by jumping on a nearby rock and glide away from the enemies. In addition to the gameplay, the player will also earn skill points required to upgrade your character. Along with skills points, there will also be loot to collect.
You can customize your whole character. You can either pick a male or a female character. Accordingly, you can change your character’s body type, voice, hair, and many more features. The armour you find during the game will also impact your look. However, a new armour can improve your stats or increase your stamina going forward.
You will unlock new abilities by engaging in quests and interacting with the Gods you meet and forging a relationship with. Simultaneously, your interaction with the environment can also be used in combat.
Example: You can cut down a tree and throw it at a Cyclops. But he can grab it and throw it back at you
