Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter relaunched
As promised, Precursor Games has relaunched its Kickstarter for Shadow of the Eternals.
This time, the game will no longer be released episodically and one of the stretch goals is for PS4 development alongside PC and Wii U.
If the Kickstarter campaign is successful, a story around the history of the Blood Countess, Elizabeth Bathory will be told, and will be a complete game. If more funds are raised through Kickstarter, it will go toward creating “more parts and telling more stories.”
The developer pulled the title from the crowd funding site back in June after the firm felt it had too many “messages” surrounding the formation of a new studio, who all was involved, and failing to focus on detailing the game more.
At the time, Silicon Knights founder Denis Dyack said the “noise” over his involvement also added to misconceptions to the already “unclear” funding campaign.
Then, Ken McCulloch, one of Precursor’s founding members and former director at Silicon Knights, was arrested and charged with multiple counts child pornography involvement.
The new crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, which will feature the voice talents of David Hayter, is asking for $750,000 instead of the original $1.5 million goal. So far, 370 backers have pledged $16,177.
Denis Dyack told Polygon the firm is no longer asking for the original amount because was able to find additional backing elsewhere.
