While the Ubisoft E3 conference wasn’t entirely lacking in color, a brightened hue oversaw the tail-end of the presentation. Gods & Monsters, from the creators of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, is a new IP that has a keen focus on Greek Mythology.
An accompanying trailer for the game did not provide much detail, but left a tingling sense of adventure. Sweeping plains, a lone warrior standing near a cliff, and a sudden threat shooting forward. With a saturated aesthetic that beautifully heightens the otherwordly nature, one can expect the mythological aspect to be a selling point.

A synopsis of the game was provided by the official Youtube channel of Ubisoft North America:
From the creators of Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey comes a storybook adventure about a forgotten hero on a quest to save the Greek gods. Prove your heroism by fighting dangerous mythological creatures and taking on their fearsome leader in a face-off for the ages. Explore a beautiful fantasy world where tricky trials, treacherous dungeons, and heroic feats await. The journey will be as challenging and rewarding as the final destination, and you will emerge as the hero you are meant to become.
