Gamesfarm is getting ready to release Shadows: Awakening on PS4 and Xbox One September 4, 2018. This isometric single-player RPG is going to take you on an epic adventure through Dungeons and other unique locations. This game reminds me of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance with some of the combat. If the combat does look familiar to you it is probably because this is the same developer that gave us Vikings: Wolves of Midgard. A pretty good game in its own right I might add. The game will provide plenty of hours of gameplay as you can see in the features below.
A Tale of Two Worlds – In a parallel universe inhabited by demons and monsters; seamlessly switch between the Shadow Realm and the mortal plane and witness a gripping storyline in a world full of myths, destinies and legendary creatures.
Unique Party System – multiple characters in one demon, each retaining their own personalities with internal dialogues, rivalries and communication between the characters.
Wide variety of Skills and Characters – Choose from 3 heroes, each with their own personal storylines, quests and dialogues. Consume the souls of 14 playable characters, each with their own unique skillsets, like Kalig the Bandit King and Evia, Daughter of Fire.
Tactical Real-Time Combat – Combine the skills of your various characters to maximize the effects of your devastating skills and spells.
Extensive Gameplay – 20+ hours for a single playthrough, but with substantial options for replayability which accumulate to 60+ hours for the full experience.
Challenging Puzzles – Complex puzzles are scattered throughout the game, and will take you through a vibrant set of locations, from rustic towns to the deepest and darkest of dungeons.
Crafting and Looting System – Expanded crafting and looting system will let you use rewards to configure the ultimate adventurer.
Fully Voiced – All dialogues are fully narrated, including actors like Tom Baker.
With over 20+ hours of gameplay you are sure to get full satisfaction out of this one. Who is ready to fight through a horde of creatures, solve puzzles, and explore dungeons full of mystery? I do enjoy when these types of games are co-op but I guess not having to share the loot will be just as good. You can pre-order the game now and if you’re a prime member you can save 20%. Check out the really cool featurette trailer below so you can see just how much backstory these characters have in the game. Sometimes we don’t get a good story to go along with our dungeon crawler but that doesn’t appear to be the case here.
