Modern meets fantasy in BioWare's online action RPG Shadow Realms
Earlier today, BioWare and EA announced Shadow Realms, a new 4v1 story-driven online action RPG set in a constantly evolving world where modern meets fantasy.
No two battles will ever be the same, because it's four players teaming up against one player, playing as The Shadowlord, in dynamic 4v1 co-op missions. There is an over-arching narrative that will be released in episodic format, giving players the ability to experience the story-driven adventures as a community. Players will also have the choice whether they want to play as or against The Shadowlord, getting experience and progression when choosing good or evil.
The press release states:
In Shadow Realms, 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 Shadow Legions, who have been battling on Embra for years against the members of the Radiant Empires, have gained new strength with the coming of a powerful, unknown force that we call the Shadowlords. And, they have just figured out how to leave Embra and invade Earth.
