Enter the Necropolis! New Shadows: Awakening DLC Out Now!



Death is only the beginning!


Kalypso Media has braved the darkest depths of the Heretic Kingdoms to announce that Necrophage’s Curse, the latest blood-tinged DLC for Shadows: Awakening, is available now on Steam, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.

In Necrophage’s Curse, the Devourer corrals his strongest souls to confront the Necrophage, the Eater of the Dead. Players will rise above death itself as they investigate a deadly curse and reveal the harrowing secrets of the Necropolis. Along the perilous journey, players will battle with the eponymous Necrophage and consume his soul to add this unique puppet to the party. Players can begin the DLC both by starting over from scratch or by heading back to Kyallisar in an existing adventure. Gruesome enemies, challenging puzzles and quests await!

About This Game

“An ancient proverb warns: ‘Never trust a demon, for betrayal is their very blood’.
Yet the Sura, the great ogres of the Wastes, have a different saying: ‘A demon honours its pact’. Perhaps when the race of men looks into the eyes of hell, they see their own darkness reflected…”


– Carissa Cantrecht

Shadows: Awakening is the new adventure in the Heretic Kingdoms saga. After the members of the secret council known as the Penta Nera are assassinated, their souls are consumed by the Devourers – evil demons which possess the ability to absorb the memories and personalities of the souls they acquire and materialize them as their puppets. Re-emerging into the mortal realm once again, the demonic Penta Nera continue their quest for power and immortality, but at what cost?



Shadows: Awakening is a unique, isometric single-player RPG with real-time tactical combat. You take control of a demon summoned from the Shadow Realm – the Devourer – to consume the souls of long-dead heroes and embark on an epic adventure with challenging gameplay, a gripping storyline and enchanting graphics. Do you have the focus and wits to master the world of the Heretic Kingdoms? Gather your party, control powerful heroes and use their skills to your advantage. But who is in charge… the demon, or the souls that it has devoured? It's up to you to either thwart a major threat and save the world, or to plunge it into complete disaster…
