There’s nothing quite like a Viking adventure but, despite television’s best efforts to convince you otherwise, Norse tales are more than just comic book heroes and raiding the English. Today, Void Studios and 1C Entertainment are ready to show players a different side to Norse mythology with the upcoming release of Eternity: The Last Unicorn.
Old School Without The Cardboard Box
Set to start on March 5, this magical adventure draws heavily on old school RPGs for inspiration, taking players back to a time when Jotun, Fenrir, and Gullveig roamed the lands. In a land filled where adventurers can explore the Yggdrasil Gardens, or enter Vanaheim a young elf, Aurehen of Alfheim, sets out to seal the fate of the final unicorn. In Eternity: The Last Unicorn these magical creatures have all but dwindled to extinction, and the last of this species wanders the Fjords, cursed and alone. It is up to Aurehen to save this unicorn and the fate of the Elven race.
Players setting out to save the Elves will get around 12 hours of gameplay out of this old school adventure. Eternity: The Last Unicorn features two playable protagonists, Aurehen and a Viking called Blor. Each of these eager heroes has their own particular backstory and set of character abilities to overcome the challenges that lie before them. They each benefit from a deep set of skill, weapon, and ability progressions systems which are all tied into character exploration and growth.
This all makes Eternity: The Last Unicorn seem like it might be an interesting modern take on the old school RPG systems of yesteryear. If you need an excuse to brush up on your rune readings, Eternity: The Last Unicorn will be available on PC and PlayStartion4 for $19.99 USD / 19,99 EUR. The Xbox One version will follow later in the year. Further details are available on the official website.
