The creators to the cult classic, an undderated one at that, Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requim have announced and started a campaign for the spiritual successor to the game ‘Shadow Of The Eternals’ after over 10 years awaiting for a sequel have announced this new game, this is the press release below by Precursor Games.
“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.
The premiere episode of Shadow of the Eternals begins when detective Paul Becker is called to one of the bloodiest massacres in Louisiana state history at Pleasant View Hospital. The massacre is survived by two individuals who seemingly have no recollection about who they are or what has transpired – one a suave, clean-cut business man, and the other hardened, rogue-like biker. Both men have seemingly lost all memory of who they are – yet they are compelled to kill each other.
Becker’s interrogation of the suspects brings us to Hungary 1610 AD at Čachtice Castle – home to the noblewoman Erzébet Bathory. Bathory is also a notorious serial killer; torturing and killing as many as 400 young women in her obsessive quest to retain her youth. You play the role of Bathory’s handmaiden and lover Clara, who is blackmailed by the authorities into gathering information about a missing nobleman’s daughter.
Events are soon set in motion that will change Clara’s life forever.
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.”
The game will take on an episodic format exploring different characters lives through different moments in time, with the first season consisting of 12 episodes with the first scheduled for release during the 3Q of 2014 with PC and Wii U being the focus on platforms to be released on though this more may be added depending on other factors.
