2K and Evolve aren’t the only ones offering 4v1 multiplayer. EA and Bioware also want a piece of the action. Today, EA revealed a new online action role-playing game for PC called Shadow Realms.
Bioware says Shadow Realms will “finally bring the magic of tabletop RPGs to the digital realm.”
In Shadow Realm, you can choose to play one of four heroes or take on the heroes as a villain called The Shadowlord.
Bioware’s James Ohlen had this to say in a blog post.
“It (Shadow Realms) is a game that finally fulfills that fantasy of a never-ending RPG where the players meet up regularly to keep their epic adventures going for as long as they want. All the enemies, traps and challenges are squarely in the hands of another player, who controls them just like a Dungeon Master. The monsters and villains are smart and unpredictable, making every battle a test of strategy and power. Best of all, everyone gets to enjoy a story that plays out like their favorite TV series, but where they decide the fates of its world and characters.”
Check out the announcement trailer below.
For a better look at the gameplay, IGN has four minutes of all gameplay footage. Video is below.
