All modern societies are built upon the myths and legends of the past. Before there was science, it was stories of gods and heroes that explained the often harsh realities of nature. Many of the myths still resonating within European and North American cultures come from the Norse people-a people who had to learn to live within some of the harshest environments on our planet.
We began this project by asking ourselves, what if the myths were true? What if these gods and heroes and monsters did exist and the folk stories were an attempt by the average citizens to explain extraordinary events and figures beyond their understanding? With these questions as our starting point, we then set out to create entertaining, and yet still plausible, answers. If the Norse myths were all based on truth, then we would have to assume many of the details behind the stories became skewed and confused over time and through thousands of retellings.

Members of the SOTE Community – it’s been a long time since we’ve been able to reach out to you and give solid news about what we’re working on and where things are at. We want to give a heartfelt thanks for sticking with us through these last few years as we figured out a way to build a decent development studio so that we can create the games we want to make with no compromise. There’s been a lot of trials and tribulations getting to this point but we kept going because of the support that you’ve all given us even whilst things have been quiet and we haven’t been able to talk.
We’ve had a lot of feedback over the last few years from a lot of sources and after a lot of discussion and debate we’ve come to agree with the feedback that now is not the right time for Shadow of The Eternals – it’s not canceled but it is also not going to be in active development for a while.
