During EA’s press conference today, a new Bioware IP was announced. Called Shadow Realms, it was stated to be the only online action RPG that offers 4vs1 gameplay. It’s a story driven game that pits and you party against a benevolent force called the shadow lord. The shadow lord controls every aspect of the game. You’ll have the chance to either play as or against the insidious one. Story was said to be at the heart of the game thanks to continually changing story and realm.
The game will play out over time like a TV series and be episodic in nature.
Shadow Realms will be available for PC late next year. Gamescom attendees will be able to play the game today. Everybody else can sign up for the closed alpha right now.
