It’s being billed as a Mass Effect styled adventure, and all we hope is that Headup Games and the development team at Elder Games have been inspired by the earlier Mass Effect experiences rather than the later ones like Andromeda. Even then, the chance to dive into an epic sci-fi action RPG on a breathtaking planet is more than appealing, and so the announcement of Everreach: Project Eden is something that is hugely exciting.
After being in development for three years already, Headup Games – they behind the brilliant Truberbrook – are proud to finally be able to lift the lid on Ede Tarsoly’s new masterpiece – Everreach: Project Eden. Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC (Steam), Everreach is a fast-paced, story-driven 3rd person action RPG which is set on the visually stunning Planet Eden. And the best thing about it? You won’t have to wait long to get involved as Everreach will release on Xbox One and PC this September, with the PS4 version dropping a little later in the year.
In Everreach: Project Eden you play as Nora Harwood, member of Everreach’s Security Division, on a mission to secure the colonization process of Eden and investigate mysterious incidents. Explore this vast alien world and descend into the planet’s depths to discover the ancient secrets of a long-forgotten civilization. Packed with intense shooter action, and a compelling level and skill system, Everreach immerses you in its intriguing story and diversified gameplay.
With Everreach: Project Eden, Ede Tarsoly decided to think big, and for the first time turned his former one-man studio Elder Games into a team of five, also utilising the power of over a dozen external freelancers. Together they managed to create this massive 3rd person adventure packed with tactical ground combat, high-speed vehicular warfare and a compelling level and skill system.
The whole development process could however only happen with multiple hands on board, and in addition to his new team, Ede received some help from a group of talented external contributors. For example, Planet Eden’s beautiful vistas were co-designed by Mai-Anh Tran, an artist who worked on sci-fi movies such as WarCraft and Star Trek: Beyond. Furthermore, there is Michelle Clough who helped create the game’s enthralling story. She was the former narrative QA and game writer for the Mass Effect trilogy. And even one of the voice actors, D.C. Douglas (“Legion” in Mass Effect 2 and “Wesker” in Resident Evil) adds perfectly to the atmosphere of Everreach: Project Eden.
Features of Everreach: Project Eden include:
- Play as a highly trained security guard specialized in extraterrestrial missions
- Customize your skills and gear through a classical skill tree with over 80 upgrades
- Engage in tactical battles, deploy force fields or use the environment against your foes
- Immerse yourself in 8 hours of story from Michelle Clough, game writer and former narrative QA for the Mass Effect trilogy
- Explore Eden’s beautiful vistas designed by Mai-Anh Tran, an artists who worked on movies such as WarCraft and Star Trek: Beyond
- Hop onto your hoverbike to engage in high-speed vehicular warfare
