Fenyx Rising’s newest Immortals DLC, The Lost God, shows players the fantasy realm within Greek Mythology from an entirely new perspective.
Fenyx Immortals RiseNext DLC, The Lost Gods, releases tomorrow and the developers gave a little insight into what players can expect during today’s live stream. The DLC brings many changes to Fenyx Immortals Rise, including a new main character, new gods, and a bird’s-eye perspective.
Ubisoft was released Fenyx Immortals Rise in December last year, and the third-person action RPG was well-received by critics upon its release. It was followed by two different DLCs, with the second, Myths about the East Zone, bringing a new main character and pantheon of gods to the game as she neglects the Greek mythology of the base game for Chinese.
As much as Myths about the East Zone is a big step for Fenyx Immortals Rise, The Lost Gods looks to be even more so. While the new DLC returns to Greek Mythology, its new perspective is more like what players would expect from games like Diablo, and carries some major gameplay changes with it. Lots of what makes up Fenyx Immortals RiseBaseball is still present at The Lost Gods, including the sense of humor and exploration. Although, the new perspective removes many features of the base game, such as climbing, and changes the battle to be more inspired by a brawler.
During the live stream, developer Julien Galloudec made a point to stress that while much of the experience has been changed in the DLC, there is still a lot of what players loved. Fenyx Immortals Rise in The Lost Gods. He also discusses how the decision was made so that the developers could take advantage of the new camera angle to give players new types of challenges and mechanics. Galloudec also discussed how the camera switch fits well with the game’s story and reflects the role of the main character Fenyx in the DLC.
It’s a very bold move to make DLC for a game so completely different from the experience players had before. The change could turn many a lot off Fenyx Immortals Risefans, but it could also lead to a very unique experience if pulled off well enough. Hopefully, The Lost Gods could deliver enough of what was loved about the base game to satisfy fans. With this new DLC so different, it will be extremely interesting to see what else the future holds for the world Fenyx Immortals Rise and several other Ubisoft series.
Fenyx Immortals Rise available now on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S. The Lost Gods DLC launches April 22nd.
