“Everreach: Project Eden”
Announced for PC, Xbox One and PS4
Ede decided to think big, and for the first time he turned his former one-man studio Elder Games into a team of five people, plus over a dozen of external freelancers. Together they created a massive 3rd person adventure packed with tactical ground combat, high-speed vehicular warfare and a compelling level and skill system.
In addition to his new team, Ede received some help from a group of talented external contributors. For example, Planet Eden’s beautiful vistas were co-designed by Mai-Anh Tran, an artist who worked on sci-fi movies such as WarCraft and Star Trek: Beyond. Furthermore, there is Michelle Clough who helped create the game’s enthralling story. She was the former narrative QA and game writer for the Mass Effect trilogy. And even one of the voice actors, D.C. Douglas (“Legion” in Mass Effect 2 and “Wesker” in Resident Evil) adds perfectly to the atmosphere of Everreach: Project Eden.
