Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter relaunched with PS4 stretch goal

Plus, former Metal Gear voice David Hayter to play protagonist Paul Becker

Precursor Games has relaunched the Kickstarter campaign for its Eternal Darkness successor, Shadow of the Eternals, with PS4 added to the list of prospective platforms.

The developer has also announced its collaboration with David Hayter, most famously known as the long-standing voice of Metal Gear Solid protagonist Solid Snake.


Hayter, who was surprisingly left out of casting for Metal Gear Solid 5 after Konami decided to draft '24' star Keifer Sutherland for the leading role, had previously provided vocals for Eternal Darkness, and will return for the sequel as its lead character, detective Paul Becker.

"Playing the role of Paul Becker will be a blast as he is both complex and conflicted," said Hayter.

Shadow of the Eternals returns to Kickstarter after its first run at crowd finding was postponed far short of its goal. The new fund targets a goal of $750,000 - almost half of the previous campaign's $1.35 million target. While the game currently remains a PC and Wii U-only title, a PS4 version has been added as a stretch goal for an undetermined amount.

Backers will also be added to a closed online community forum where they'll be able to "participate in designing the game through a unique community-driven model, by working directly with the developers".

Here's the new blurb for the game:

Shadow of the Eternals is a single-player, story-driven action-adventure steeped in psychological horror that is the spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (GameCube, 2002). The game weaves historical fact with disturbing fiction, centered around a Louisiana detective whose fate is somehow linked to the true story of the infamous Blood Countess Erzsébet Báthory in 17th century Hungary.
