What These Immortals: Fenyx Rising Expansions Could Mean For The Future

A set of expansions is on its way to Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and fans could be in for a broader scope within that world. In a recent announcement via IGN, Ubisoft revealed three upcoming DLC expansions that will integrate new characters and a new story centered on Chinese mythology. To add to the excitement, players will also gain access to daily and weekly quests, vault challenges, community contests, and cosmetics, all at no cost.

If you purchase the Immortals: Fenyx Rising Season Pass, you will be able to enjoy the first expansion for free. While the first part will continue to explore the familiar Greek settings of Olympus Palace, the second installment is where you'll get to experience something completely different. Titled Myths of the Eastern Realm, the second expansion presents a new protagonist while immersing players in a world inspired by Chinese mythology. Ku, the hero of this story, fights enemies through traditional Chinese martial arts techniques. The third part returns to Greek mythology with another new character named Ash. This expansion will introduce a fresh top-down perspective, along with unique brawler combat.

What does this mean for the future of Immortals: Fenyx Rising? With two new characters already coming, fans could see a large influx of playable heroes as Ubisoft continues to grow the game. This news could also imply that Immortals: Fenyx Rising will explore even more mythologies from different world cultures. Such a prospect is very exciting, as more cultural representation could be on the horizon for this game.

Some of the other gameplay additions could be in response to initial claims that Immortals: Fenyx Rising was a mere Zelda clone. With overwhelming claims from fans and critics alike that the game was a rip-off of the beloved Nintendo franchise, it makes sense that Ubisoft would continue to evolve the game in a way that it stands even further on its own. Even shifting focus on different world mythologies could be seen as a way for Immortals: Fenyx Rising to create its own niche.

Despite heavy comparisons, the game has received critical praise, with some notable nods to Ubisoft's own Assassin's Creed as a source of inspiration. 

Immortals: Fenyx Rising is set to take flight on December 3, 2020, and will be playable on Google Stadia, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, the Nintendo Switch, and PC. Until then, the future looks bright for this upcoming Ubisoft title.
