Immortals Fenyx Rising – Myths of the Eastern Realm is, letting players attempt an all-new DLC adventure inspired by Chinese mythology and led by the team at Ubisoft Chengdu. Concentrating on a fresh hero – Ku, the final remaining human carrying out a catastrophic event – the DLC unfolds in a fresh land of clouds and jagged mountain peaks, where players battle to greatly help the goddess Nuwa pull reality from falling into primordial chaos back.
Set contrary to the backdrop of the classic Chinese myth Nuwa Mends the Heavens – where Nuwa, the Chinese creator goddess, restores balance following a catastrophic war in Heaven – the DLC weaves together elements from the initial amount of Chinese mythology. Because they explore the verdant, legendary land of Peng Lai and its own rugged, arid neighbor Bu Zhou, players shall locate a wide selection of environmental puzzles, formidable monsters, and components of myths which have been unexplored in video gaming largely.
Meet Ku, a formidable warrior as well as your new hero
While he shares Fenyx’s whimsical, naive outlook slightly, Ku is really a formidable warrior right out the gate. From the outset, he’s in a position to wield a Jian sword, an axe, and a bow to wreck the DLC’s new monsters, utilizing a new fighting combat and style inspired by Chinese fighting techinques. He is able to climb rocky cliffs with a hefty reserve of stamina; double-jump without wings (although he does get wings in early stages); and wield godly abilities like Pangu’s Strength, Yi’s Arrows, and Nuwa’s Agility, which strikes enemies as Ku dashes through them.
Additionally, two of Ku’s powers – the Blades of Huang Di and the Axe of Yan Di, that may launch enemies with upward-thrusting smash and blades them with a huge axe, respectively – can unleash additional attacks as Ku charges up a fresh, three-tier God Seal combo meter. Enter uninterrupted strikes enough, and the Blades of Huang Di launch a flurry of whirling swords that target enemies directly, as the Axe of Yan Di generates devastating, fiery shockwaves on impact.
New puzzles and dungeons await
The DLC features a variety of new puzzle elements also, including windmills that may turn to redirect their airflow, musical chimes which have to be struck in sequence, and morphing cubes that change their mass and size when struck. In the Ruins of Heaven – challenge-filled dungeons like the Vaults of Tartaros – Ku may also need to cope with new elements like rideable clouds, which are carried by air currents and dissipate should they hit obstacles; and air rings that Ku can yank himself toward to maintain his momentum while gliding telekinetically.
