When Ubisoft first revealed Immortals Fenyx Rising, the game had a different name: Gods & Monsters. The publisher quietly changed the title a while back, but little information was given on the reason for the decision. In an interview with Gamespot, game director Scott Phillips revealed that the decision was made based on the direction the game took during the development process. According to Phillips, the developers wanted to focus more on the main character Fenyx, and the new title reflects the character’s importance to the narrative, as opposed to the Greek gods that appear as part of the game.

Up to this point, the U.S. Army and Navy’s recruitment efforts on Twitch have been fraught to say the least, but over the weekend, the latter courted outright disaster.

It appears that Fortnite is facing some server issues related to log ins, as several posters across social media are reporting issues with the game. As of this writing, it is not known how long the game will be down for, but the official Fortnite Status Twitter account has stated that an update will be issued when there has been a resolution. Until the publisher states otherwise, this should be considered a temporary issue, and it should be resolved by Epic Games rather quickly. For now, it seems that players will just have to sit tight!
