Following all of the teaser trailers, EA and BioWare have finally revealed their upcoming game – Shadow Realms.
Featured above, the new teaser trailer is a mix of in game visuals and CG graphics, and the RPG driven duo are promising a four versus one story, curiously set within an online MMORPG, for PC.
Shadow Realms is set within a modern day earth, where fantasy meets reality. Four heroes are meant to join together against The Shadowlord, a player controlled enemy in which four versus one co-op missions take place. The core story within the game will be released in chucks via TV like episodes.
Here’s the official press blurb for the game’s story:
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.
