Ubisoft has penciled in a firm release date for the second slice of Immortals Fenyx Rising DLC. Dubbed Myths of the Eastern Realm, the paid expansion launches on March 25. The second of three planned post-launch DLC, Myths of the Eastern Realm drops the game’s titular protagonist, Fenyx, in favor of a new hero named Ku, abandoning the Golden Isle’s Aegean flavor for a new open-world area in the process.
New gods and exotic monsters make an appearance, and, as the name suggests, the story will draw from Chinese mythology. The DLC also introduces a new fighting style inspired by Chinese martial arts to Immortals Fenyx Rising. Ubisoft’s Chengdu branch led the DLC’s development, which bodes well for an authentic dive into Chinese mythology. While Ubisoft has yet to offer a meaty look at Myths Of The Eastern Realm, the Immortals Fenyx Rising post-launch content trailer, released late last year, provides a quick peek at Ku, the new Chinese myth-inspired area, and new enemies.
Free Immortals Fenyx Rising DLC Taster Quest
Still not convinced about forking out extra cash for the DLC? Ubisoft pieced together a free ‘special primer quest.’ We Are Not Alone offers owners of Immortals Fenyx Rising a taste of what’s in store come March 25.
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.”
The Myths of the Eastern Realm DLC releases on March 25 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna as part of the game’s Season Pass or purchased separately. Will you be picking the DLC up? Let us know in the comments below.
