It’s safe to say that Immortals Fenyx Rising has taken inspiration from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but how exactly do the two games compare?
Immortals Fenyx Rising is Ubisoft’s latest open-world adventure, and despite being an original IP takes a fair few cues from a variety of games – most notably The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but also Ubisoft’s own Assassin’s Creed franchise.
In the video above, Kurt Indovina and Max Blumenthal compare Immortals with Breath of the Wild across three topics: exploration, combat, and puzzles. From an exploration standpoint, Immortals offers a very Ubisoft take on the Breath of the Wild formula, with a healthy dose of inspiration from recent Assassin’s Creed titles.
Kurt and Max also break down the two game’s combat, and discuss which title has the more satisfying fighting systems in play. And finally, they discuss Immortals and Zelda’s compelling puzzles – or Vaults vs. Shrines – to see which game has the upper hand when it comes to testing our brains.
