Shadow Realms is a 4v1 game, pitching a group of heroes against the player controlled shadow lord. The villain of the piece can try to put an end to the heroes’ progress by placing traps and possessing monsters. Over the course of the narrative, the shadow lord attempts to weaken the group before facing off against them in a final confrontation.
The title will have a narrative weaving through it, so it will be interesting to see how the game’s setting and mechanics cater for this.
Those attending Gamescom are being offered the opportunity to try out the game on the show’s floor. However, those who are unable to make it can sign up for a spot in the closed alpha, which will launch next month. Head to the Shadow Realms website for more information.
