Much like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WIld’s Shrines, Ubisoft’s Immortals: Fenyx Rising has “Vaults.” These are special puzzle rooms that you can enter for various rewards, including new gear or ways to upgrade your stamina. The Vaults contain all kinds of activities, from puzzles based on switches and targets to larger physics exercises and combat arenas. In some cases, players in Breath of the Wild might want to replay a Shrine. Can you do the same in Immortals?
The answer is mostly no. In Immortals: Fenyx Rising Vaults play a similar role to those in Breath of the Wild, such as becoming fast travel points once you complete them. In Immortals, Vaults often have more than just the primary goal. If you pay attention you’ll be able to find an Epic Chest in each vault, for example. Until you clear all the objectives, which you can see marked on the map, the Vault won’t be considered fully completed.
As long as there’s at least one objective remaining, you can re-enter a vault. It’s not going to be very engaging however, as if you’ve solved the puzzle you’ve solved the puzzle. Once you complete all the objectives in a vault, it will lose its otherworldly powers and more or less turn into a normal rock. And that’s it; donezo. If you want to replay a challenge you liked, you’re going to have to play with the manual save system to get yourself a bookmark.
So while there’s plenty of stuff to run into in Immortals: Fenyx Rising, it’s a lot of one and done surprises. There isn’t really a lot of repeatable activity in this world, unless of course you start the whole game over. Luckily the game itself is quite fun if you don’t mind the open world formula, and the combat is pretty slick as well. You can check out our review for further thoughts in that direction.
