The new Gods and Monsters game certainly caught everyone's eye when it was revealed at the Ubisoft E3 2019 presentation. It's being made by the team behind Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and looks like a lovely Greek riff on The Legend of Zelda. In this guide compiling all the details we have on the game so far, we'll be going over the Gods and Monsters release date, all the gameplay trailers that we've seen so far, and more.
Gods and Monsters Release Date
The Gods and Monsters release date is February 25, 2020. No, this isn't the 1998 film with Ian McKellan and Brendan Fraser, but the Gods and Monsters game from Ubisoft was certainly charming and pleasant to watch when it was first premiered back at Ubisoft's E3 2019 presentation.
When it does release, Gods and Monsters will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch, Stadia, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. So, basically everything. It's a full priced game, retailing for $60 on all platforms.
The developers behind Gods and Monsters are Ubisoft Quebec, the team that delivered the impressive Assassin's Creed Odyssey back near the end of 2018. The team is once again returning to Ancient Greece as they did with Odyssey in Gods and Monsters, except this time they're exploring the land of gods and monsters through a more cartoonish lens.
Gods and Monsters Game Trailer
We mentioned above that Gods and Monsters was first revealed at Ubisoft's E3 2019 presentation. You can see the reveal trailer for the game below, which came near the end of a generally lackluster conference from Ubisoft, although most agreed that Gods and Monsters was one of the highlights of the show.
In Gods and Monsters, we're going to be embarking on an adventure through the land of Ancient Greece. Our nameless protagonist is journeying to the land of Greece to actually rescue the Gods from a horde of monsters, and we're going to be challenging Typhon, the leader of the monsters to free the Gods.
Mythology plays a big part of Gods and Monsters, as did Assassin's Creed Odyssey. According to the game website, we're going to be taking on monsters like Gorgons, Hydras, and the Cyclops, all rendered in a charming art style.
Right now, this is all the information we have to go on about the Gods and Monsters game from Ubisoft. We'll update this guide whenever there's any additional details announced.
