Long-time developer BioWare has today announced Shadow Realms at Gamescom 2014, a new 4v1 story-driven online action RPG, set in a constantly evolving BioWare world where modern meets fantasy.
Four heroes adventure against another player-controlled enemy, a malevolent force called The Shadowlord, in dynamic 4v1 co-op missions, ensuring that no two battles are ever the same. Players will have the choice to play either as – or against – The Shadowlord, building experience and progression whether they have chosen good or evil. The over-arching narrative will be released episodically, playing out over time like a great TV series, providing players the ability to experience story-driven adventures as a community.
The reveal follows several teasers released over the month, all hinting at being "chosen" for a destiny. BioWare has promised that Shadow Realms will be a continuously updated story with "an ever changing world," though we aren't sure exactly how dynamic that will be.
Shadow Realms has at this time only been confirmed for PC.
