First dubbed as “You’ve Been Chosen,” EA/Bioware have revealed the actual name of their new game and details to boot.
Shadow Realms — a 4v1 story driven online action/adventure RPG from Bioware is in the works.
“Modern Heroes on Earth are being awakened and recruited, because of magical powers they never knew they had, to fight in a new and dangerous war against the Shadow Legions of Embra.”
The EA Gamescom conference showed a great emphasis on cooperative gameplay. The four customizable characters that adventure through the modern/fantasy worlds. The story will not be straightforward from the get-go. Instead the narrative will be released in episodes and will be creating a story for players to more easily follow together.
But the four main heroes are not the only playable characters. One person will be free to play as “Shadowlord,” another customizable character, and be the primary foe to intercept the heroes on their journey.
“Shadow Realms is a new BioWare RPG that has the hallmarks of all BioWare games with a rich story, a unique world setting and deep combat progression, but built as an interactive experience that evolves the genre and broadens the appeal to online gamers all over the world.” – Jeff Hickman, General Manager and Vice President at BioWare Austin.
Shadow Realms doesn’t yet have any release date and has not revealed which consoles/platforms it will be coming to.
