Eternal Darkness may well be getting a sequel in the shape of Shadow of the Eternals if their Kickstarter campaign goal of $1.5 million is reached, beginning tomorrow. Check out the teaser trailer above.
The spiritual successor is going to be made by Precursor Games and will be available for the PC and Wii U in 12 episodic chapters.
“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.”
The Kickstarter begins tomorrow and needs $1.5 million, it will be very interesting to see how well this campaign does. Eternal Darkness is a fantastic game so I’m sure there will be fans out there willing to put up money for a sequel. I wish them luck.
