Description

In Shadow of the Eternals, we follow the investigations of Detective Paul Becker, who is called to one of the bloodiest massacres in Louisiana state history. Only two survivors remain from a brutal conflict between two rival cults at the abandoned Pleasant View Hospital: one a suave, clean-cut business man - and the other a hardened, rogue-like biker. Both men have seemingly lost all memory of who they are - and yet they are compelled to kill each other.
Through Beckers interrogation of the suspects, a story unfolds that is set in Hungary 1610 AD at Csejthe Castle home to the noblewoman Erzsebet Bathory. Bathory is a notorious serial killer; torturing and killing as many as 400 young women in her obsessive quest to retain her youth. You play the role of Bathorys handmaiden and lover Klara, who is being blackmailed by the authorities into gathering information about a missing noblemans daughter. Events are soon set in motion that will change Klara's life forever.

Combat:

* Each character uses a variety of melee and ranged weapons which are historically accurate to the time period. Becker is a trained detective and a skilled shot with his Smith & Wesson SW99, while Klara is a handmaiden working as an informant for the police so discretion and stealth is important. She uses a concealed ballock dagger and wheellock pistol.
* Combat is very tactical by allowing the player to select specific parts of their enemy to target, which can leave them vulnerable to follow up attacks.
* Finishers can be used to ensure once an enemy is down, they stay down.

Magick:

* The use of magick is not to be taken lightly and can have serious consequences. In the right hands magic has the ability to turn the tide in combat and help solve puzzles.
* Charging a spell is an intensive, real-time process that requires the player to concentrate and stand still which makes them vulnerable to enemy attacks.

Exploration:

* Exploration is the most important tool that the player has at their disposal and can help them get past hazards or solve puzzles.
* Interact with the environment via item or location inspection to uncover the mysteries of the game.
* You are not alone in this world and will need to use the dialog system to extract information or plead for assistance.
