IGN Video - 7 Things To Know About Immortals Fenyx Rising

The Gods of Greek Mythology have been cursed by the evil monster Typhon and only Fenyx can stop the world from descending into chaos. From a stylised open world to godly powers, here are seven things to know about Immortals Fenyx Rising. Sponsored by Ubisoft.

Ubisoft aimed to mimic the tone of comedies like Naked Gun and Airplane with Immortals: Fenyx Rising's story

Surely you can't be serious

You might not know it from the look of the game, but Immortals: Fenyx Rising takes a humorous approach to its story. Not something you see very often in this kind of adventure, or from a big-name publisher. Where did that direction come from? In an interview with Game Informer, narrative director Jeffrey Yohalem explains the inspiration.

"I felt like a lot of video games are incredibly dark, and I had missed this feeling from childhood that movies like the Princess Bride or Naked Gun or Airplane had given me; I felt like, 'Why can’t a video game have that kind of tone?'. It got tipped in that direction by the fact that Greek mythology is actually full of comedy. Unlike our religion today, which is seen as a moral compass where everything is very serious and is how you should act if you were a perfect person or a perfect deity. For the Greeks, their mythology was like their soap opera or their reality television, where you’re seeing people who are just like us making mistakes and you’re learning from the things in the stories that result in tragedy."

Ubisoft explains how an Assassin's Creed glitch paved the way for Immortals: Fenyx Rising

It's not a bug, it's a feature!

Immortals: Fenyx Rising is a brand-new IP for Ubisoft, and they're hoping it'll be welcomed with open arms by players the world over. That includes Assassin's Creed players, who we have to thank for this game. Immortals may never have come to be without it.

In an interview with Game Informer, the very first jumping point for Immortals: Fenyx Rising came from an unexpected glitch in Assassin's Creed Odyssey's. Director Scott Phillips elaborated on the discovery.

"There was a bug at the time where you’d be sailing on your trireme and instead of having a normal human crew, you’d have a crew of cyclops. We knew that was wrong for Odyssey, but it also sparked this idea of, ‘Actually it would be quite cool if we can break those historical bonds and just go full force into mythology.'"
