The publisher said that the game is an open-world experience with a painted art style. Before the Ubisoft E3 2019 Briefing, many insiders said that a The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild-like experience would be revealed at the event. It seems like Gods & Monsters is that game. You to defeat famed mythological beasts and save the Greek gods in a heroic journey.

In Gods & Monsters you embody Fenyx, a forgotten hero on a quest to restore power to the Greek gods after it was stolen by Typhon, the deadliest creature in Greek mythology. You'll explore the Isle of the Blessed and prove your heroism as you face terrifying foes including fearsome Gorgons, Harpies and Cyclopes.

Senior Producer at Ubisoft Quebec Marc-Alexis Côté said the following about the game.

Over the last ten years, I have had the chance to be part of an incredible team that has pushed the limits of Assassin's Creed to explore historical periods from a unique angle. But our imagination has always been bound to the reality of the history books. Through our work on Assassin's Creed Odyssey these past four years, our minds have lingered on another aspect of our history – mythology. Today, with Gods & Monsters, the tales we all love and know so well become a reality to be explored like never before.
