Ubisoft Forward presentation scheduled for September 10th

By Heidi Nicholas,
The next Ubisoft Forward digital showcase will take place next week on September 10th at 12pm PDT / 8pm BST. We'll get a look at Watch Dogs: Legion, Rainbow Six Siege, and an update on Gods & Monsters — or, as it's now called, Immortals Fenyx Rising.

Before the main show, there'll be updates on Roller Champions, The Division 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint, followed by the big hitters: Watch Dogs: Legion, Rainbow Six Siege, Gods & Monsters Immortals Fenyx Rising, and other "yet-to-be revealed surprises."

Gods & Monsters was a highly-anticipated new IP, and noticeably absent from the last Ubisoft Forward. Ubisoft confirmed the title change, saying there'll be "a much-anticipated update on our new IP, Immortals Fenyx Rising, formerly known as Gods & Monsters" during the event. The Gods & Monsters Twitter account also seems to have changed its name to match.

Fenyx is the game's protagonist, and in our Gods & Monsters roundup, we talk about how Fenyx will be fully customisable. The game revolves around Fenyx's quest to save the Greek gods from Typhon, a fearsome beast straight from the tales of Greek mythology. Fenyx will have powers from the gods, and the whole thing will be narrated by epic poet Homer. At least — that's the last we heard of the game. It's unclear, yet, whether this title change also means a change in gameplay or story. It's also unclear why Ubisoft has gone for the change. Maybe it's to promote the protagonist, or perhaps to avoid confusion with Ian McKellen's sombre period drama, Gods and Monsters. Given that the movie came out in 1998, that's probably much less likely.

It seems we'll have to wait and see. The Immortals Fenyx Rising devs say we'll have a full reveal on September 10th, and we'll be sure to bring you all major updates. What do you think? Are you a fan of the new name for Gods & Monsters? Is there anything else you're hoping to see, like Ubisoft's mysterious Skull & Bones or Beyond Good and Evil 2?
