Immortals Fenyx Rising: The Lost Gods
Top Critic Average
The Lost Gods is the best expansion released by Ubisoft for Immortals: Fenyx Rising. It features the same type of dad joke humor prevalent in the main game and A New God while utilizing the open-world and the addition of new characters and locations that set the Myths of Eastern Realm apart from the rest of the game. There are certain problems and shortcomings, but altogether the DLC provides a lot of fun.
The Lost Gods gives us a completely new way to explore the world of Immortals, as well as a natural extension on the events of the first DLC, A New God. While the camera can be problematic, the charm, puzzles, humor, and brand new ways to play are worth pushing through it. It's a great cap to the game, and the team's willingness to try new things speaks volumes.
Crafting a dungeon-crawler in the world of Immortals Fenyx Rising is a great idea, but the dev team behind The Lost Gods DLC didn't meet that goal. They nailed the look but completely missed on the gameplay. As a result, The Lost Gods feels like a mishmash of ideas without mastering any of them.
The Lost Gods is, by far, the most adventurous DLC and the most fascinating to play but it's still bogged down in the same mistakes made before it. This is absolutely the DLC you should play but it's still not as fun as the base game.
After two underwhelming DLCs, The Lost Gods is a nice and interesting send off for the first steps of this new franchise in the making.

With a new top-down view, solid world design, and much better pacing, Immortals Fenyx Rising - The Lost Gods is, without a doubt, the best expansion released for the open-world game by Ubisoft. While the experience it's not fundamentally different from that introduced in the main game, the tweaks to exploration and combat make the new journey enjoyable, especially if one hasn't had enough of Fenyx's universe.
The Lost Gods is the third and final DLC for Immortals Fenyx Rising. While it introduces new perspectives and mechanics, it doesn't exactly come together into a cohesive whole.
Immortals Fenyx Rising's final piece of DLC unexpectedly changes the traditional perspective and progression of many previous Ubisoft games, making The Lost Gods a genuine treat for the new IP's conclusion.
