The game includes a tutorial allowing the player to quickly understand the various controls that the game entails.

Violence, fear, nudity?

The game features fantastic violence without much bloodshed. On the other hand, there are more or less violent themes that refer directly to Greek mythology and violence. Characters sometimes have a level of coarse language, but the game is not graphic in terms of violence. This is a perfect game for teenagers who want to discover Greece.

Language level used

Language is sometimes sustained and sometimes coarse as well.

Positive message
Jauge Vert Pale Ecran Partage

The game shows young teenagers who are interested in Greek culture and mythology a slightly less violent version, without being too censored of Greece. It’s very rewarding as a culture and learning it through video games without the extraordinary violence it can contain, is very interesting.

Minimum reading level required

Principle of the game

Embark on a brand new adventure presented by Ubisoft that will immerse you in Greek myths. Play as a personalised hero and you’ll quickly be drawn into an unforgettable epic adventure. Find the artifacts that will be put in your way in your quest to save the gods and meet legendary characters who will leave a mark on your adventure. Olympus is waiting for you!

Local game modes

Just one mode where you go through history. You can’t play with a split screen with your child, but you can guide your child to find clues that will allow them to advance their quest.

No online game modes


There are a few extensions to the game’s main quest in the “Season Pass” that add a few more missions to your story that will be released in the months following the game’s release. The first is called “A New God” which will allow you to prove yourself in Olympus. The second is called “Myths of the Eastern Realm” which is based on Chinese mythology and the last one is called “The Lost Gods” which will allow you to reunite with a new hero, Ash.


This title is a very educational game for young people about Greek mythology. It removes the violence of the God of War series and is more akin to the younger side of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It allows young people to live a legendary adventure, without too much violence, but without losing the pleasure. Recommended for all fans of mythological and action games.
