'Aeterna Noctis' (ALL) Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 17, 2021 @ 11:58 a.m. PDT

Aeterna Noctis is a 2D-metroidvania game that 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, each of them with its own flair, facing more than 100 different enemies, defeating more than 20 powerful final bosses (some of them are highlighted in this new trailer) and overcoming all kinds of challenging puzzles.

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.

In this new trailer, players will be able to witness how challenging platforms and hectic combats are the core of a "pure Metroidvania experience". The video also showcases all the different mechanics and options that players will have to overcome enemies and puzzles, from teleportation to double jumps and dashes.

Despite having 16 levels, the devs at Aeternum Game Studios remind that the footage shown in this new trailer is just a small glimpse of all the content the game will have when it releases later this year. Some NPCs featured in the new trailer will unlock secondary missions that will explore the lore of Aeterna Noctis world as well as expanding the main quest.

Key Features:

  • Experience a metroidvania with a challenging difficulty. Easy to leanr, but hard to master as you gain experience and unlock new skills.
  • Explore the mysterious lands of Aeterna in a non-linear way. You are always the one to choose your next challenge. All the levels are designed to fully exploit the movement skills of the characters, opening multiple ways to overcome each challenge.
  • Enjoy a clean and fluid gameplay designed and polished to achieve a system that responds to 100% of the actions regardless of the speed and conditions in which they are executed.
  • Immerse in a deep and beautiful story. Aeterna Noctis is not just about puzzles and platforms. It is also filled with epic moments and unexpected twists that will captivate even the most experienced of players.

Aeterna Noctis is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X| S, Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on December 15, 2021.
