Gods & Monsters was first revealed at E3 2019, with an original release date of February 25, 2020, but was delayed late last year. A Stadia bug meant an early version of the game was briefly playable, but Ubisoft confirmed that it was the E3 2019 demo version of Gods & Monsters.
The game has altered since then, in more ways than just its title; Eurogamer previously got a statement from Ubisoft, saying, “the game formerly known as Gods and Monsters has evolved in surprising ways, which is common when developing exciting new worlds […] Much has changed since [E3 2019’s demo] in terms of features, tone, art and character design, and even the name of the game.”
We got a tease that the game would be re-revealed yesterday, and you can check out some new shots of Immortals below:
When we first played the game formerly-known-as-Gods & Monsters, we discussed its similarities to Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but said it was far more than a clone, taking cues from Assassin’s Creed and even Bastion along the way.
