Immortals hands-on: I assume Ubisoft is copying Breath of the Wild now

As a part of as we speak’s “Ubisoft Ahead” occasion—which started with a press release from CEO Yves Guillemot apologizing for years of abusive conduct and a latest PR fake pas—the sport studio revealed a sport that, in mild of the corporate’s points, looks like a bizarre flex.

The 2-hour demo I performed of Immortals: Fenyx Rising, a third-person journey within the vein of Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, appears like a sport from a problematic Ubisoft period. (It has been round for lengthy sufficient, having initially been revealed as a sport referred to as Gods & Monsters, however now has a brand new title and a December 2 launch date.) Earlier than I get into the sport’s mechanics—which rip off BotW so shamelessly that I wonder if Nintendo might press fees—I wish to speak about its tone.

“Get a room, already”

The sport stars Fenyx, a mortal Greek girl with supernatural powers like flight and telekinesis, on a mission to revive order to Mount Olympus. At first look, chances are you’ll have a look at the armor-clad hero and assume Ubisoft has continued its streak of cool-and-powerful sport heroines, following Murderer’s Creed Odyssey‘s Kassandra.
