Sony Interactive Entertainment Spain (SIE Spain) and Aeterna Game Studio presented the gameplay of Aeterna Noctis for the first time. In this 17-minute video, players can catch a glimpse of the 2D Metroidvania that will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, Nintendo Switch, and PC in late 2021.
Developed as part of the PlayStation Talents project, Aeterna Noctis tells the King of Darkness and the Queen of Light. The gift of immortality. Players will experience this endless conflict on 16 challenging levels.
One of the most important features revealed during extended gameplay was the level system. Aeterna Noctis has a skill tree where the player chooses the Dark King’s upgrades through three distinct paths: hand-to-hand combat, survival attributes, and magical abilities. Each of these branches allows for a deep degree of specialization, but, at the same time, they are not mutually exclusive. Players are free to update their character as they wish.
