Gamescom 14: BioWare's Shadow Realms

Remember the pair of sweet teaser trailers that BioWare released a few weeks back? One was called "Nightmare" and the other was called "Impact". Well this is what they were leading up to--Shadow Realms. Check out four mintues of gameplay from IGN's Gamescom 2014 coverage.

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.

BioWare's GM Jeff Hickman had this to say about the title.

Shadow Realms' story will stretch out episodically, as BioWare slowly releases new chapters to the adventure as the game progresses. The story stars powerful heroes protecting Earth from an invading army of Shadowlords.

"This game brings us back to our roots in the realm of classic Pen and Paper RPG, but also delivers something that's completely new and innovative for our fans," said Jeff Hickman, general manager and vice president of BioWare Austin, which also worked on the online game Star Wars: The Old Republic.

This could be cool and it is BioWare so I always give them the benifit of the doubt. I'm sure they'll be more information before the game comes out next year.
