Have you been chosen? Apparently we all have. I have seen a number of those emails hit my inbox with some short live action video clips of various things aimed at teasing for an upcoming title from BioWare and EA. They live streamed the event on Twitch TV at 7 a.m-ish PST, but I missed it sadly. However, the live action trailer is up for your viewing pleasure, not that it shows much of anything too entice you as to how the game will play out though.
BioWare RPGs have successfully replicated many of the things that made classic tabletop games fun: powerful storytelling, being able to create your own character, leveling-up that hero to achieve the heights of fantasy power, and tactical combat against a fantastic array of monsters. But the stories always come to an end and AI systems can’t replace the creativity of a human Dungeon Master.
Shadow Realms offers up a multitude of classes to choose from. Like your traditional Warrior, Assassin, Wizard, Cleric, Ranger, Warlock and Shadowlord. Each with its own unique powers, skills and abilities. The game will really be driven by teams and cooperation among friends who are out to take on the Shadowlord, the Demonic Shadow Legion and save humanity.
