Have you missed out on journeying into the depths of Eon Altar? Well now you can for free this weekend and the best part is it has couch co-op! What better way could you spend a Thanksgiving weekend than with friends and video games.
Eon Altar is a unique blend of PC RPG and mobile experience by Flying Helmet Games. Chapters 1 and 2 have been out for the past few months and with Episode 3 on the horizon, Eon Altar: Prelude – The Siege of Tarnum is free on Steam that will help introduce players to the lore and world of Eon Altar.
In this Prelude episode, players will be able to choose from one of five unique characters in an hour-long campaign that begins to build the world around them. Lead your character through the critical Siege of Tarnum that sets the stage for Episode 1 of Eon Altar.
Eon Altar from Flying Helmet Games takes a traditional RPG campaign and brings it into the digital age by fusing mobile controls with a PC title. While it is completely possible to take up the mantle of a hero on your own in solo mode, Eon Altar is enhanced when you gather your friends to participate in the quest with you. An innovative controller application is downloaded to your mobile device and is used to not only control your character but to receive your quests and dialogue as well. You are encouraged to act out your character’s dialogue – or perhaps you’d rather keep their motives and monologues a secret from the party because it’s in your best interests! Will you do whatever it takes to lead your chosen character to their ultimate destiny – even if it means betraying the group?
I gave the first episode a playthrough back in September and found it far more enjoyable than I thought I would. It’s no Diablo or Divinity: Original Sin but it’s a really good game on its own merit. I feel like our writer Josh Cawston here at BSG would love it if he could pull himself away from Paladins. For the price of a season pass and the amount of gameplay you get, I’d say it’s a no-brainer if you’re looking for something that will remind you of Gauntlet Legends. Give it a go and let me know what you think on Twitter!
