Series X. I did some more digging online and it looks like quite a few people have had issues with Ubisoft games corrupting saves if you let the console do quick resume, which canít be turned off but can be circumvented by closing the game from the Home Screen. I didnít have the problem with AC: Valhalla or the first 30 hours of Fenyx, but I guess maybe Iíll give it one more shot and close the game after each time I play.

On sale again, at least on Xbox.com, 30 for regular and 50 for Gold which includes the season pass and the preorder bonus.
I know it's short-ish (actually that's a benefit). Is it still holding up? Has the Save issue been fixed (on XSX)?

I've sat down three different times to play, maybe an hour each and I'm just not feeling it. The hub world(?) is ugly and I cannot get into the controls (the right trigger and bumper are the action buttons?). So weird.

Might give it one more shot before throwing in the towel.

I couldn't disagree more. One of the best looking and best controls of any open world game I've played.

Iím loving this as well. Started a few days ago. Just got all three tears and now heading to get the apple. Itís a lot of fun to play and the humor is goofy but entertaining

Iím with you. I downloaded the demo, and the controls felt weird to me.

Ok. How do I activate the Phosphor birds on the PS5. I have two. I can select them but not sure how to sue them in battle

Unfortunately, you waive all potential liability claims when they join you in battle.

The Season Pass for this ended up being quite a big disappointment. The first DLC was just a bunch more of the trials just way harder then any in the main game. The second DLC was the only good one and played basically the same as the main game just with Chinese mythology and characters. The third DLC was a top down brawler and was a frustrating experience to play.

Yeah? I thought that third one looked kinda cool. I had no idea how it played though.

Re: Immortals: Fenyx Rising (Ubisoft, all platforms, 12/3/20)

Can someone please help me? I’ve suddenly lost even though it’s there the ability to pick up objects, blocks and stuff. I hold LB (Xbox) and hit Y and all I get is a eh eh and unhighlighted. Very frustrating. I closed game, restarted console, uninstalled, reinstalled, checked online. Any help, much appreciated…

Funny this was bumped because I just finished it. One of my very few platinums. A lot of fun, even if the enemy variety could have been better.

Seeing this on Black Friday ads reminded me that I had bought the season pass during a sale, but never played it. Just wrapping up the first dlc and like it a lot. Itís nothing but the challenge puzzles, but I really enjoyed those and the ones in the dlc are more difficult and creative than what I remember from when I played though the main game at the beginning of the year.

You think if I delete saves and start from beginning might work? I still can’t find what’s wrong or how to fix. It’s so perplexing. Went back today. Reloaded saves, quit game, back in and eh eh when I try to do the Herakles ability or whatever…

Re: Immortals: Fenyx Rising (Ubisoft, all platforms, 12/3/20)

I figured it out. I must have glossed over cut scene. They were stolen by Hermes for a brief moment and I didn’t have them during this Myth quest. I saw a video where I shoot control arrows to light fixture on back wall. This is just before opening title card. My bad. I’m an idiot. Now, I gots some real wings. This should be fun. The whole game is one big puzzle. Some I get, got the constellations which surprised me. But puzzle after puzzle. Still loving and got the itch back. I did start again and deleted saves but didn’t get very far so made up ground and then some pretty quick. And right before Halo. That was dumb. Not sure I can keep Halo on back burner.

Re: Immortals: Fenyx Rising (Ubisoft, all platforms, 12/3/20)

Well, Iíve got to revise my opinion of the dlc.

I still would recommend the first one to anyone who enjoyed the vault puzzles from the main game.

The second one is essentially the main game on a new, smaller map with different characters and the dad humor turned up from a charm-wearing-thin 7 to a please-just-stop 10.

The third one is for masochists who want to replay sections over and over because they died from off-screen enemies or trying to jump to something off-screen. The top-down view is a complete train wreck for the world/gameplay they put together and I quit and deleted it ~3 hours in.

$14 right now after the $10 coupon at the Epic store. I'm going to pick this up along with Valhalla and The Eternal Cylinder.
