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.
