SIE Spain (Sony Interactive Entertainment Spain) and the Spain-based indie games developer Aeterna Game Studio are today very pleased and happy to announce that they have just released some new info and a brand-new gameplay trailer for their upcoming 2D-metroidvania “Aeterna Noctis“.
In this 17-minute video, players can get a glimpse of what this 2D-metroidvania will offer when it releases on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, Nintendo Switch and PC later in 2021.
Developed as part of the PlayStation®Talents project, Aeterna Noctis tells the story of the King of Darkness and the Queen of Light. They are both cursed to fight each other eternally and even death could not free them from their destiny since they have been granted the gift of immortality. Players will experience this never-ending conflict through 16 challenging levels.
One of the most important features revealed during the extended gameplay was the leveling system. Aeterna Noctis has a skill tree where the player chooses the upgrades for the King of Darkness through three separate paths: melee combat, survival attributes and magic abilities. Each one of these ramifications allows a deep degree of specialization but at the same time, are not mutually exclusive. Players are free to upgrade their character as they want.
Following in the footsteps of the genre's great titles, 'Aeterna Noctis' aims to unite the best of each of them through reinvented gameplay packed with original skills and mechanics. Metroidnania 2D traditional art.
