Eternity: The Last Unicorn is a classic action-RPG inspired by Norse mythology that’s out next week on PC and PlayStation 4. What’s it about? About the last unicorn left alive in the realm, of course. It’s in the title.
For centuries, four magical unicorns have granted the elves of Alfheim immortality. But an evil curse has started killing off all living things, including three of the four legendary beasts. Now it’s up to you to save it.
You play as Aurehen, a young elf that according to “the elderly scrolls” (I’m not making it up – that’s how they are called in-game) is the only one how can touch the unicorn and free everyone from the curse.
There’s a second playable character named Bior, but the only thing we know about him is that he’s a Viking looking for his missing troops. Both characters will have a “unique back story” and special abilities.
Eternity: The Last Unicorn is full of Nordic mythology, and you’ll face iconic enemies like the Jotun or Fenrir, the giant wolf that kills Odin at Ragnarok (the legend, not the movie). The game should last for over 12 hours of gameplay, so there’s much more to it than we can see in the trailer above.
Speaking of gameplay, The Last Unicorn is an old-school RPG, and as such, it uses a third-person, fixed-camera system, meaning you can’t control it during battles, though it will move to follow the action. There’s also deep skill and weapon progression that’s tightly related to exploration and character growth.
Eternity: The Last Unicorn is coming out on March 5 for PC and PlayStation 4. An Xbox One version is planned for a later release.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links. Don't worry, it doesn't cost you anything extra.
