Ubisoft’s Gods & Monsters and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have so much in common that can easily make people wonder if they just watched a cinematic trailer or a great robbery. This new title by Ubisoft has just been announced in E3 this year.

Gods & Monsters - the upcoming title from Ubisoft.

From beautiful, fairytale fields of grass, to the valiant pose of the elf-faced main character, anyone can mark this game as a “daylight theft.”

Despite the fact that Ubisoft and Nintendo have been known to have a close relationship, any lawyer in Kyoto (the hometown of Nintendo's headquarters) is likely to share the same thought at the moment: to take their action on her “look and feel” fundamentals.

Just take a moment to look at the new trailer of Gods & Monsters. It doesn't take a good intellectual property attorney to realize the situation. Though making any allegation about this copyright-related act from Ubisoft could be inappropriate and is not a wise move, players can't deny the fact that this Gods & Monsters title looks almost the same as Zelda.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released in 2017.

However, let's move to the next part as we've already made that point clear. Good news for you: the developer of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, one of the most enjoyable titles ever made, also created Gods & Monsters. The game has the same engine with Odyssey, but there is no similarity in their combat system,  geography nor the graphic design.

Instead, Gods & Monsters tells a story of a fancy island where the legends of Ancient Greece will act as a storytelling factor to guide players through a series of combat and dungeon-esque puzzles in a wonderful adventure. It seems the dungeons mentioned will not be named "shrines", but anything can happen.

The team behind Assassin's Creed Odyssey is also developing Gods & Monsters.

Homer delivers the story of Gods & Monsters to his grandchildren and put them in this mysterious world by a magic lyre. This is where players creating their own character named Fenyx, who will begin his adventure to help Zeus and the residents of Olympus fight against Typhon and his monstrous creatures.

According to Greek belief, Typhon is the name of a towering creature that looks like a snake. His desire is taking the throne from Zeus, which is fundamental for a lot of fictitious creatures from ancient Greece. However, this is considered a good way to introduce kids to the Hellenic pantheon in our modern world.

The game is inspired by Greece mythology.

In fact, Gods & Monsters' combat system is much likely to be suitable for kids, especially it seems to not follow the brutality of Assassin's Creed. The game also offers a huge number of magical abilities and light RPG with crafting materials.

Despite the point we've made earlier, Gods & Monsters is still a promising title. It must be so exciting to try it when it comes to PlayStation 4, Google Stadia, Windows PC, Xbox One, and... Nintendo Switch.
