Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms Trailer, Screens, Info - July 31, 2014
Based on player and media feedback, publisher bitComposer and the developers at Games Farm have agreed to invest additional development time into this exceptional title.
Fans and supporters won't have to wait for the extended edition with its increased scope, however. The game will now be released in two parts: Book I: Devourer of Souls in November 2014 and Book II: Age of Demons in February 2015.
Peter Nagy, Head of Development at Games Farm: “It was clear to us from the start that Shadows had the potential to be a great game. But at the beginning of development, we realized that Shadows was going to surpass even our expectations and would be the biggest and most ambitious project we’ve ever worked on to date. The hugely positive feedback from the players and the great previews of the Early Access build did the rest.
"However, the increased scope of the game has also increased development requirements. We had to ask ourselves a difficult question and make a decision: How can we meet the fans expectations without taking away the features and the content that make the game so unique?
"So we made the following decision: to leave Shadows as it is and at the same time meet the high expectations of our fans. We’ll split Shadows into two large segments/stories and call them ‘Books.’"
