How stamina works in Immortals Fenyx Rising

The use of stamina within Immortals Fenyx Rising is crucial to your success, whether it be in combat or solving one of the many puzzles throughout the Golden Isle. When traversing the diverse environment, stamina can be depleted in many ways, but it will always regenerate.

As shown in the image above, using your wings to glide depletes stamina, but don’t worry too much about running out while in mid-air as the wings will stay open until you safely reach the floor. Sprinting also won’t leave you in a dangerous predicament, so you don’t have to be mindful of going everywhere in a rush.

There are other types of movement which could leave you in a spot of bother, though, as swimming for too long will leave you sinking to the bottom if you run out of stamina. Climbing too high without resting is also perilous, and will have you sustaining deadly fall damage very quickly.

While unlike other games that implement stamina in combat, Immortals Fenyx Rising doesn’t punish you for over-exerting your character. The only way that stamina is depleted during a fight is by using powerful Godly abilities. Stamina will be slightly regenerated with every light attack that you land on enemies, so dodge and swing your sword or axe to your heart’s content until the enemy is vanquished.

A useful tip for approaching combat is to employ the stealth attack. While crouching if an enemy is yet to notice your presence, you can sneak up on them and use the stealth attack, dealing a massive amount of damage to give you the upper-hand.

Stamina can be upgraded while you work through the game by collecting bolts of Zeus’ lightning from the various Vaults of Tartaros and taking them to the Hall of the Gods.

How to manually save and load games in Immortals Fenyx Rising

There is an autosave feature within this game, but if, like many gamers, you are still sceptical of this, you can easily perform a manual save to protect your precious hard-earned progress.

To manually save Immortal Fenyx Rising, head to the main menu. The first two options at the top of the menu will be ‘Save’ and ‘Load,’ with you also having the choice of creating multiple saved game files.

How to customise and remap controls in Immortals Fenyx Rising

To customise or remap the controls within Immortals Fenyx Rising, simply head to the main menu and select Options. Next, scroll one tab to the right to find the Controls menu: under the General section, you’ll find the ‘Customise Controls’ option, where you can entirely remap the Immortals Fenyx Rising control layout.

Now, you’re ready to immerse yourself into the modern retelling of Greek mythology and liberate the Golden Isle in Immortals Fenyx Rising.
