Following the release of a teaser trailer earlier today, developer Precursor Games has served up the first details for its Eternal Darkness sequel, Shadow of the Eternals.
In development for Wii U and PC, the game will infold over 12 chapters starring Detective Paul Becker, who is called in to tackle a deadly clash between two rival cults, Precursor confirmed to IGN.
The previously-reported crowd funding campaign due to commence on Monday, May 6, will seek $1.5 million, with stretch goals beyond that which will include "future episodes, additional characters, additional platforms and in-game perks".
"We are overwhelmed by the level of interest for Shadow of the Eternals," said a Precursor rep.
Here's the official story blurb:
"When Detective Paul Becker is called to one of the bloodiest gang massacres in Louisiana state history, only two survivors remain from a brutal conflict between two rival cults. As Becker begins his interrogations of the suspects, their combined recollections will uncover the truth about the 'Eternals'.
"Featuring an ensemble cast of heroes and villains, Shadow of the Eternals will span over 2500 years of history throughout Egypt, England, Hungary, and the United States. Players will question the perception of reality as they try to balance the mechanics of combat, magick, and sanity events to progress through the adventure.
"Shadow of the Eternals will take players on a memorable journey throughout time; weaving historical fact with disturbing fiction to create an experience unlike any other."
