During the State of Play, Eternights was announced. Described as a dating action game set in an apocalyptic setting, the game features a colorful cast of characters for you to fight and explore dungeons with. Check out the trailer and description below:
From the official PlayStation Blog:
Eternights is a dating-action game where you try to make the most out of life during the apocalypse. So you scavenge for supplies, explore dungeons… and go on dates. Please watch the below trailer to get a flavor of what to expect in our game, coming to PS4 and PS5 early next year, and you can get a sneak peak in our brand-new trailer below.
There’s so much to look forward to in Eternights so here’s a taster of what to expect in our game:
Face the infected
One day, something, or someone, has turned humans into dangerous monsters. All that interests them now is violence and power. They are what stand between you, a cure, and the world you want.
Some of you might be curious about what the dating part of a “dating action game” is. Dating is… well… dating. When you’re not exploring dungeons, you can choose to spend time growing closer to a cast of five quirky and loveable characters. As you explore their stories and grow closer to them, you also unlock unique skills and spells you can use in battle.
Manage your calendar
There are deadlines for you to beat the dungeons and it is important for you to manage your time wisely. Will you grow closer to your confidant in order to deepen your relationship and unlock new skills? Will you scavenge the wasteland for supplies? Will you grow stronger by training with your companions? Or will you ignore all of that and go to the dungeon the first chance you get? It’s up to you, but remember, the clock is ticking.
The dungeons you will explore are filled with mystery and danger. As the deadline looms, you will have to quickly overcome traps, puzzles, and dancing minigames to make it through in time. Luckily, you have your confidants by your side to help you when things get scary.
With Eternights we want you to immerse yourself and truly connect with the characters you are spending time with. We’ve crafted several fully 2D animated cutscenes that change depending on who you decide to date.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this first look at our debut game. As a storyteller, I’ve always wanted to mix a love story with adrenaline-driven action. I wanted players to have a strong, personal reason to drive them forward in combat encounters and to feel they were fighting for more than just their own survival – they were fighting for those they love.
