Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms - Unerde

The Devourer awaits!

We are happy to announce that we have now added the exclusive Shadows: Awakening Steam beta to the accounts of all owners of the original Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms.

Over the course of the evening today, owners of Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms will see the Shadows: Awakening beta added to their Steam libraries. The exclusive beta (also open to all Shadows: Awakening pre-order customers on Steam) gives players the chance to charge into the adventure before the official release in late summer 2018.

Additionally, you can leave your feedback in the connected Shadows: Awakening beta community hub on Steam.

So what are you waiting for? It is time to decide if you will plunge the Heretic Kingdoms into darkness, or bring peace to the world.

What makes Shadows: Awakening unique:
  • Deep integration of the ‘Shadow Realm’ – a parallel world that is central to the core gameplay mechanics and the story, as well as influencing equipment, combat tactics, puzzles and quests.
  • Play as a soul-devouring demon.
  • Unique party system where players can play as multiple characters in a single avatar, while being able to experience the full range of personal stories and characters’ identities.
  • Tactical real-time combat using a bespoke ‘Synergy’ system and cross-realm tactics.
  • Use the Synergy system to strengthen and develop the combination of characters in your party.
