Game Description:EON places the player in Soldairn, a realm at the brink of civil war. Some of Soldairn's noblemen secretly form an alliance to overthrow the king, whom in their point of view refuses the noblemen their rights. The political turmoil escalates even more when Soldairn's northern neighbour proclaims a crusade against the country. The king tries desperately to gain control over the situation, but his grip is slowly fading. The dwarves and elves worriedly watch the development in Soldairn, but remain neutral. Soldiers prepare for war, mercenaries sense business, traders remove their routes from Soldairn, and the people slowly feel the change sweep over the land. A storm is coming, and it brings the winds of war with it.
The game is played in an isometric perspective with rendered graphics and voxel rendered ground. The realm of Soldairn is over 120.000 square kilometres which all can be explored. The world is dynamic and there are hundreds of characters to communicate with, all with their own appearances and sampled voices. Such classical CRPG-elements of the past, as levels or hit points, are eliminated in EON and replaced by realistic models that simulate a real world. Combat and damage feels real and terrifying. A dagger in the back can be fatal, even for a hero.
EON is based on the critically acclaimed best-selling paper-and-pencil Swedish role-playing game with the same name. The same people behind the original role-playing game are developing the story line, script and dialogue of the computer version.
