Like Link, in fact, even the hero who can be interpreted in the adventure once known as Gods & Monsters will be able to freely explore a scenario full of puzzles to solve, of enemies to confront and of upgrades to unlock to evolve their equipment.

Hoeg does that state in the above video that it would be likely that Ubisoft likely would have won the case had it gotten far enough, but that it would been a long, drawn out and expensive affair that Ubisoft didn't have guarantees of winning.

Based on files dug up by Techraptor, Monster Energy disputed the trademark used by Ubisoft for Gods and Monsters which led to the game being renamed to Immortals Fenyx Rising.

Spurs are also closing in on a deal to sign Real left-back Sergio Reguilon, who had been a target for Manchester United . Perisic joined Inter in 2015 and still has just under two years left to run on his contract with Inter.

Ubisoft's ancient Greek RPG Gods and Monsters was forced to change its name to Immortals Fenyx Rising due to a trademark dispute with Monster Energy, legal filings show. Monster Energy opposed the registration of the name Gods & Monsters under the belief that it "will be damaged" by it, and noted the focus of the term "Monster" in its own marketing.

KitGuru says: What do you think of Monster Energy's claims? Ubisoft attempted to counter by pointing out that the word "monster" exists in, well.hundreds, if not thousands of other gaming products without challenge.

The game changed a lot, to the point where we felt we needed a new name to be better aligned with that updated vision, so that's where we chose to change to Immortals Fenyx Rising, a name that combines the notion of the timeless aspect of the Greek mythology with the immortals. However, Ubisoft didn't want to sacrifice a massive amount of money and time just fighting the claim. Ubisoft challenged the opposition a month later, however Hoeg believes they simply opted for the cheaper (and shorter) option of changing the name instead.
