Ah, the good ol’ Microsoft Store – forever a source of reliable leaks that the Redmond firm seemingly has no interest in stopping. It’s now spoiled Ubisoft’s big Gods & Monsters re-reveal, which was scheduled to take centre stage during the publisher’s big livestream next week. We already know about the name change to the eye-rollingly awful Immortals Fenyx Rising (no colon!) – but it looks like the title will release on 2nd December.
There are also some new screenshots included alongside the leak. Since the game was announced at E3 2019, the title has undergone a significant makeover; its cartoon proportions and painterly art-style have been scrapped for more realistic characters and oversaturated colours. To be honest, this looks like next-gen Kid Icarus to us – we’re sure Nintendo Life readers will also spy the similarities.
The press release mentions that this is a “grand mythological adventure” where you’ll wield Achilles’ sword and Daidalos’ wings as you fight legendary beasts like Cyclops and Medusa. There’ll be seven unique regions to its open world, each inspired by a different god. We’re looking forward to seeing this in action during Ubisoft Forward next week – it could be a tasty pre-Christmas treat once the initial wave of PS5 hype has passed.
