New Eidos Montreal Game Focuses On An Explorer Searching For A Way To Save His Love

image A source leaked details about an upcoming title from Eidos Montreal to Siliconera. This upcoming game has three main characters and the player takes control of a 30 year old explorer.

 

The lead character is in love with "Nova," which started out as an infatuation. His feelings developed into a sense of responsibility for Nova and the Hero wants to save her. To do so, he needs to find an "architect" who the Hero believes knows how to save Nova.

 

After a long journey, the Hero meets a 25 year old female mercenary who has located the architect. Described as a "dark beauty" and "femme fatale," this character is happy to help the hero out, but she has her own agenda too. She likes to flirt with the Hero and has a habit of turning on people. The mercenary views "Nova" as a rival and all three characters form a love triangle of sorts.

 

The two characters meet at a barren landscape under a colorful night sky. A path lined with rocks meanders towards a tower in the center of the scene. The Hero strides up the path with a sense of urgency in each step and calls out to the "femme fatale" mercenary who is waiting for the hero.

 

"And what makes you so sure he’ll be here? The Architect could be anywhere in the Nebula," the Hero bellows. "Could be," the Mercenary coyly responds.

 

"So why here," the Hero questions. "Don’t you trust me," the mercenary smirks. "He’s my last hope," the Hero says with a sense of purpose. "I don’t know how much longer Nova has…"

 

The mercenary interrupts him by leaning in for a kiss. "Would losing her be really that bad," the mercenary says smiling as she walks down the rock-strewn path.

 

Our source provided a few other details about the game. The Hero uses a sword and shield, and the Hero is troubled by his past. A series of failures chipped away at the Hero’s confidence and he hopes that saving Nova will be a way for him to prove himself. The center of his doubts comes from his brother and the Hero interactions with him. Exhausted and frustrated from traveling for a long time, the Hero is described as a bit "jaded." He wants to see proof that the "architect" is there and that he will be able to save Nova. The Hero is called a "navigator" in this world and our source says he does not realize his own power.

 

When asked about platforms, our source wouldn’t give us a clear answer only saying information will be announced in the not so distant future.
