Shadow Realms - 4v1 RPG from Bioware

Submitted by: Got Haggis? @ 08:28 AM | Wednesday, August 13, 2014 | (url: https://www.shado...)


Shadow Realms has its genesis in old school Dungeons & Dragons. When I first started designing BioWare RPGs back in the 90s, what drove me creatively was the desire to give players the experience I had while playing pen and paper games as a youth. The great storytelling, the feeling that anything could happen - these were experiences that you couldnt find in any other game. And the great thing was that these adventures never had an end. A good Dungeon Master could keep a story going for months or even years.

...

It 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.

Shadow Realms isnt just hearkening back to those early BioWare PC gamesits finally bringing the magic of tabletop RPGs to the digital realm.

Bethesda will release the teaser trailer for their new Fallout 3 on June 5th. I have the odd feeling that this will piss more people off then make them happy when it comes out because I see Beth making this a first person RPG, which will suck.

Warhammer Online postponed till Q1 2008

This months newsletter has some bad news for you TWers waiting patiently for this upcoming, highly anticipated MMO by Mythic, the same folks that brought us Dark Age of Camelot. Yep, that's right... It is now an even longer wait then before. However, maybe this means that we'll have a longer time to beta test it? Only time will tell, but at least we have a lot of it.

"We have made the decision to move our ship date for the US and Europe to the first quarter of 2008. (Release dates for Asia will be announced at a later date.) Since our acquisition by EA, we have been afforded many wonderful development opportunities and we plan to take full advantage of everything that is available. This includes taking several additional months to make the best MMORPG possible."
