Shadow of the Eternals Logo - Join the Order Eternal Darkness successor

UPDATE: IGN just revealed some more information about Shadow of the Eternals. According to Andrew Goldfarb, the plan for this game is to release it episodically on the Wii U and PC. The crowdfunding goal is $1,500,000, though there will be stretch goals that include things like “future episodes, additional characters, additional platforms and in-game perks.” They also detailed the plot of the game, as described by Precursor.

When Detective Paul Becker is called to one of the bloodiest gang massacres in Louisiana state history, only two survivors remain from a brutal conflict between two rival cults. As Becker begins his interrogations of the suspects, their combined recollections will uncover the truth about the ‘Eternals’.

Featuring an ensemble cast of heroes and villains, Shadow of the Eternals will span over 2500 years of history throughout Egypt, England, Hungary, and the United States. Players will question the perception of reality as they try to balance the mechanics of combat, magick, and sanity events to progress through the adventure.

Shadow of the Eternals will take players on a memorable journey throughout time; weaving historical fact with disturbing fiction to create an experience unlike any other.

IGN will also debut the first gameplay trailer for Shadow of the Eternals on May 6th and an interview with Denis Dyack, who will be the chief creative officer on this project.

Earlier today, IGN released a teaser trailer for a game called Shadow of the Eternals, a game that is currently being developed by Precursor Games, which houses some of the people who developed Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem for the Nintendo Gamecube. This includes Eternal Darkness‘ director, Denis Dyack, according to Richard George from IGN.

 

Shadow of the Eternals will be produced via crowdfunding, though whether this will be KickStarter, Indiegogo, or through some other crowdfunding method is currently unknown. The crowdfunding campaign will start on May 6th. You can check out the game’s website here for a countdown until the crowdfunding campaign, and you can view the teaser below.

    Denis Dyack? That arrogant piece of shit? As much as I liked Eternal Darkness, it’s going to be hard for me to support a game that has him attached to it.

    I thought nintendo still owned the rights to eternal darkness. Wouldn’t it have to be wiiu exclusive if that were the case?

    • Well, it is coming to Wii U, but not as an exclusive.

    • It’s not Eternal Darkness in name and may not feature any characters or events related to that game. For all intents and purposes, it’s more of a spiritual successor rather than a direct sequel.

      The question remains as to whether the game will be any good or not, however.

  • And it’s coming to Wii U!

    I tried very hard not to laugh out loud when I read this. Seriously? “Shadow of the Eternals”? That’s basically just “Eternal Darkness” backwards.

    I guess that Silicon Knights really is dead if they are dumping their resources into a new company. Probably was Dyack’s way of getting new government grants to make float the business. SK hasn’t made a good game since Twin Snakes, which was 9 years ago. Heck. They’ve practically made no games at all.

    go back and replay ED as I recently did and you’ll be shocked at what a subpar P.O.S. it is. Best of luck to these guys but I don’t think it’s gonna happen unless Nintendo steps in and funds it as a WiiU exclusive ala Bayonetta 2.

  • well its not completely exclusive but i guess its better for nintendo then if it where being released on the 360 or ps3 ( specially sense gaming computers are super expensive ).
