At the end of last year, I wrote a piece on why now is the best time to get into Immortals: Fenyx Rising. At the time, I thought I’d covered everything. It even spurred me on to go and buy the game for both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4/5. Here’s the thing though, I didn’t have a clue that the game was about to get a bunch of DLC as well. The season pass trailer launched around the same time of the game. It showed off that three pieces of DLC were planned, leaving the door open for some more in the future potentially. I thought that we would get this DLC around March at the earliest. I was very wrong.
It seems as though the DLC for this game is all dropping before my birthday in May, which isn’t even all the way to halfway through the year. A New God will release in a couple of weeks on January 21, 2021. This DLC sees Fenyx head up to Olympus and hang out with the gods. There, they’ll take on some new epic challenges that will change up how the world, and the Greek Pantheon, work.
The next DLC is The Lost Gods, which lands on February 25, 2021. This one puts players into the shoes of a new character, Ash, and an isometric camera. Through the new game world, players will get close to Fenyx, and bring some new gods back to the world to balance it. The DLC will also let players change up how they progress and play with a new progression system.
Finally, there’s Myths of the Eastern Realms, my favourite-looking DLC, which will be with us on March 1, 2021. This one is about a founding myth in Chinese mythology and puts players in Ku’s shoes as they explore a new facet of the Immortals: Fenyx rising series.
I love the sound of all of this DLC, and I’m genuinely excited that we’re going to be getting so much of it so soon. This is why the game is so worth picking up. It recently got a heavy discount on digital storefronts, as well as on Amazon. Getting it cheap is the way to go, since you’ll feel better about spending an additional £30 on the season pass.
