Ubisoft has come out with a pair of behind the scenes videos for Immortals Fenyx Rising. Both delve into the new Myths of the Eastern Realm DLC.

In the first video, DLC producer Tu Yang talks about the motivations for Ubisoft Chengdu to create content based on Chinese mythology, as well as the direction the team took and some of the challenges they faced. The second one has associate game director Jiang An Qi and art director Li Qing sharing insights into the design and realization of a Chinese mythology-themed world and how the team brought this world to life.

Immortals Fenyx Rising associate director Julien Galloudec told Nintendo Everything that Breath of the Wild is one of the games Ubisoft looked at, especially when it came to puzzles. He also pointed out Jak & Daxter and Banjo-Kazooie as other titles the team explored.
