Ubisoft shared its plans for the development of Immortals: Fenyx Rising, which will launch on December 3 on current and next generation consoles and PC. These include a season pass, which will include three major expansions and a bonus task (titled "When the Road Gets Rocky"), as well as plenty of free content, with daily and weekly challenges, cosmetics and social events at the forefront. Let's take a look at the trailer and see what we can find in the paid aextras for the game.
The first expansion will be titled A New God. Players will once again control the main character (or heroine) from the base game and will go to Olympos, the home of Greek deities. Their task will be to face a series of trials prepared by the gods of Olympos. The devs promise new types of puzzles, many opportunities to improve the divine powers of Fenyx, as well as the possibility to challenge Zeus (provided that the challenges prepared by Aphrodite, Athena, Ares, Hephaestus and Hermes are completed).
The second expansion, Myths of the Eastern Realm, will draw on Chinese mythology. The add-on will take us to a distant land, torn by a violent conflict years ago. The main protagonist of this expansion will be a hero named Ku, who will try to restore balance between Heaven and Earth, following the guidance of a friendly deity and his companion - Phoenix. In addition to a completely new story, the add-on will bring new, exotic enemies, among other things.
The third DLC, titled The Lost Gods, promises to be the most interesting in the bunch. After several gods have left Olympos, Fenyx, the new deity of unity of the Pantheon, tries to reunite the Olympians. But how can this be done when Zeus forbade his faithful gods to contact the renegades? We need to rely on the help of a mortal named Ash, who used to clean temples, and now has to try to convince Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Demeter, and Boreas to return home and thus save the world. Interestingly, the addition will introduce significant changes to the game play. Like in Diablo, the action will be observed from the bird's eye view, and Ash will face horfes of enemies, improving his skills along the way, while building a bond with Phoenix and other deities.
