Immortals Fenyx Rising's latest story trailer shows how you'll be saving the gods

By Heidi Nicholas,
The Immortals Fenyx Rising December launch date is drawing near, and Ubisoft has just dropped a new story trailer showing exactly what you'll be up against on the Golden Isle.

It starts with Prometheus and Zeus bickering — Prometheus trying to narrate, and Zeus trying his best to interrupt. As we mentioned in our Immortals Fenyx Rising hands-on preview, this seems to be one of the minor changes implemented in the game after Ubisoft decided to change the name from Gods & Monsters — previously, it had seemed Homer would be the narrator.

We had learned already that Fenyx winds up on the Golden Isle — the home of the gods — after being shipwrecked and, like the lovely demigod they are, decides to help out the gods while there. On their journey around the Isle, Fenyx will be given gifts and abilities by the gods. It had been a little unclear how this would work if you were meant to be the one saving them, but this new trailer explains that when defeated by big baddie Typhon, the gods were severed from their essences, and we need to reunite them to restore their power. A few more gods and goddesses were shown in this trailer, including Athena and Aphrodite, but we still have a few questions — why are they so enormous? Why is Hermes so tiny in comparison? And, since we know Immortals will have extensive customisation options, why are we seeing the same slightly-generic protagonist each time?

One thing's for certain, however: Immortals looks gorgeous. The Isle is split into multiple regions, each governed by a different god or goddess, and Fenyx will be swimming, climbing, running, flying, and riding around a range of beautiful environments. We also had a look at some of the enemies you'll be up against — Typhon has summoned an army, and is backed up by griffins, gorgons, cyclopes, minotaurs, and even the three-headed Cerberus. Immortals launches on December 3rd, and if you pre-order either edition, you'll get the bonus quest, A Tale of Fire and Lightning, about Helios and Phaeton.
