Ubisoft has announced that Myths of the Eastern Realm will release on the 25th of March. Myths of the Eastern Realm is the second of three DLCs.
This particular DLC will follow a new hero named Ku, in a new world inspired by Chinese mythology. Use unique Chinese martial arts fighting style, and explore a new open world with new characters and a storyline.
Ubisoft have shared new details and the release date of the first DLC for Immortals Fenyx Rising.
A New God DLC will be available on all platforms, January 28th.
“A New God, is available on all platforms on January 28 and tasks Fenyx with overcoming the Trials of the Olympians to take their rightful place in the Greek pantheon. A New God will allow players to explore Olympos Palace and interact with new gameplay mechanics as they traverse the new trials built by the gods. Along the way, players will unlock four surprising new ability upgrades for Fenyx and a new gear set with fantastic perks fit for a god such as letting you perform additional jumps.”
Ubisoft released this title at the start of December a few weeks after the launch of the Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Of course Immortals is also out on PC and Nintendo Switch. By all means this isn’t a review of the game, however do a expect review of Immortals in due course.
What surprised many with the run up to Christmas was that Immortals Fenyx Rising soon went on sale for a mere £30 on all platforms. Due to store credit I saved. I decided to get Immortals on the Nintendo Switch as friends were raving about how good it is on Switch, and I guess the Breath Of The Wild comparisons.
One of the main selling points with Immortals is the cloud cross save via Ubi connect. I will show you how easy it is to save and continue playing on either platform. Below you will see the comparisons via screens and snippets of gameplay footage from the Series X. Unfortunately the software doesn’t support video footage capture on the Switch via the share button, so I will use YouTube gameplay footage and credit the user, so you can check out their channel too.
Xbox Series X
Firstly, I can tell the difference straight away in loading times. Be that entering or exiting a vault of tartaros, or simply booting up the game between the Xbox or Switch. At least on Switch you have a chance to read the hint or tips…. You can view these via the menu screen anyway if you were wondering.
Here are some screens taken from the Series X:
As you can see it looks rather lush! It’s eye candy galore.
Believe it or not, Immortals runs quite smoothly on the Nintendo Switch. No issues in framerate drop or performance dropping at all. Obviously in comparison to Xbox, you can tell the graphical prowess straight away and loading times which was mentioned above.
Switching between handheld and TV mode the game looks good. I would say handheld looks better than on TV with the Switch. Then again, I guess because how huge the game is. Immortals on a handheld is just so good to have on the go and we can even use Zelda: Breath Of The Wild as example how good that is on Switch too.
Here are some screens grabbed from the Nintendo Switch:

Cross save is rather simple. As with most Ubisoft games you will more than likely already have Ubi account, which is all you need for the cross save to work. Tip, make sure to update your password if you may have already forgotten it! Because it will make your life easier when booting up the game on a different platform.
So here we go. First of all you want to select “Online Save”. Once you selected that, you will come to another screen saying either send online or load from online.
As you can see below is the send online or load from online screen.
By selecting “Send Online”, all your save data be that manual save or auto will be available to you on which save file you would like to send over to the cloud via Ubi connect. These pics were taken from the Xbox Series X.
Here is the load from online screen on the file I sent over where I left off on the Xbox and continued playing on the Nintendo Switch.
It’s a rather simple process. No stress or haggle. Just pick up and play where you left off and hopefully more titles in the Ubi catalogue will get the same treatment.
There you have it. A bitesized comparison from the Series X and Nintendo Switch. Again, this isn’t a review like previously stated. The whole purpose of this feature was to show you the difference between both consoles, how it plays and helping you which platform to play it on or both!
I hope it helps and you enjoyed viewing this. We will have a review of Immortals Fenyx Rising in due course, so stay tuned for a more in depth opinion.
