Ubisoft has unveiled the release date of the second DLC coming to action-adventure Immortals Fenyx Rising. Titled Myths of the Eastern Realm, this all-new adventure will begin on March 25 when the expansion will swipe the players off their feet and introduce a new open-world, characters, and story inspired by Chinese mythology, and centering on a new hero named Ku.
“When a brutal war breaks out between Heaven and Earth, humanity is turned back into the clay that the Goddess Nuwa formed them from. But one brave hero, Ku, escapes the curse of the broken heavens and emerges into the fallen world.
With Nuwa’s guidance and a familiar Phoenix as a companion, Ku sets out to restore the balance between Heaven and Earth. This DLC will let the player control a new hero, Ku, in a brand new story inspired by Chinese mythology, encountering new deities and fighting exotic monsters in a distant land.”
Immortals Fenyx Rising players can get an early, free taste of the DLC with a special primer quest, titled We Are Not Alone, which is available in-game starting today as part of a free update. Appearing at the southern end of the Valley of Eternal Spring, the new quest offers a stamina-testing platforming challenge in the clouds, with an appropriately themed prize for players who complete it. Like the primer quest for Immortals Fenyx Rising – A New God DLC, playing or completing We Are Not Alone isn’t required to jump into this new DLC.
Myths of the Eastern Realm is the second of the three revealed story-focused DLCs for Immortals Fenyx Rising. The first, A New God, is already available and continues the story of the base game.
The third and final DLC is The Lost Gods:
All over the world, cataclysms are ravaging cities and destroying lives. Fenyx, the Pantheon’s newly-appointed God of Unity, suspects the world is unbalanced because several gods have abandoned Olympos. Fenyx wants to help reunite the gods but finds themselves unable to when Zeus orders the Olympian gods to have no direct contact with the renegade deities.
However, Zeus never said anything about enlisting the help of a mortal…
Fenyx discovers an unlikely champion in Ash, a temple sweeper that never lost their faith in the gods. The enthusiastic young hero-to-be travels to the Pyrite Islands to try and convince Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Demeter, and Boreas to return to the Pantheon in order to save the world. The Lost Gods are a strange bunch, and each has individual reasons for leaving the pantheon and old grievances with Zeus. Ash, under the watchful guidance of Fenyx and Athena, will need to find resourceful ways to appease each of the gods and convince them to return home.
