AeternoBlade II is a direct continuation of the platform action game, enriched with elements of RPG and the genre of metroidvania, which is developed by an independent Corecell Technology studio. The production found its way to many platforms, where PS4, PC, etc. appear on the list.

Story

Action AeternoBlade II takes place after the events told in the first part of the series. After defeating the sinister Beladim, Freyja could return to life, leading to the creation of an alternative reality. Soon afterwards, the stability of this dimension was shaken - in order to prevent its complete annihilation, the protagonist must embark on another adventure. However, Freya is not the only heroine. AeternoBlade II. At the other end of the world, Bernard and Felix cross the gates of the Fortress of Eternity to put an end to the catastrophe caused by the black hole that suddenly appeared in the sky.

Mechanics

Just like in the previous version of the cycle, the pillar of the gameplay in the PS4, PC platform, etc., which was released on the PS4 platform. AeternoBlade II It is the exploration of vast and varied levels (it is worth noting that access to many locations is granted only after meeting strict conditions), solving more or less complex puzzles and fighting with encountered enemies. On the battlefield we use a not too complicated combat system, based on making combinations of blows, leading out counterattacks and the use of instant evades. In addition to the main role-playing tasks, a number of side missions, commissioned by Zevil and Carol, known from the first AeternoBlade, are awaiting completion.

In the course of the game, we can take control of time again, making use of the properties of a weapon leased by the protagonist. Due to the fact that this time we are fighting three characters, developers have significantly expanded this aspect of the game - AeternoBlade of Past, a sword belonging to Freya, allows you to turn back time and teleport at short distances; Bernard's AeternoBlade of Present halabard stops time for a short while and allows the destruction of some seemingly indestructible objects; the AeternoBlade of Future whip, in turn, allows Felix to duplicate his character and improves exploration by being able to bounce into environmental elements above the hero.

We use all of this both on the battlefield and in order to deal with specific puzzles. As we make progress, we increase the combat potential of our wards, gaining more powerful weapons and special relics (guaranteeing us an advantage over our opponents through passive attack or defense bonuses), as well as gaining stronger and stronger abilities.

Technical issues

Graphic design AeternoBlade II is much higher than the visual sphere of the first installment of the cycle - thanks to the use of the Unreal Engine 4 engine. However, the change of technology meant that developers had to abandon the original release plan also on PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS consoles and focus on refining the version for other platforms.
