Soar and Conquer in "Eternal Strands": New Trailer Reveals Fiery Foes and Aerial Combat!

Yellow Brick Games, an independent studio founded in 2020 by AAA industry veterans Thomas Giroux, Jeff Skalski, Mike Laidlaw, and Frédéric St-Laurent B., has just released a thrilling new trailer for their debut game, Eternal Strands, at the Future Games Show Summer Showcase. This latest trailer builds on the initial teaser revealed earlier this spring through IGN First, offering more profound insights into the fantasy world of Eternal Strands. The trailer showcases giant epic creatures, innovative physics-driven gameplay, and climbing mechanics, promising a third-person action adventure where players blend steel and magic in legendary fights.

"In this trailer, we wanted to show a glimpse of the various creatures to fight, armors to craft, and environments to explore that the world of the Enclave has to offer," says Frédéric St-Laurent B., Game Director at Yellow Brick Games. "With the massive challenge it presents, we can't wait to see how players will use their creativity when facing a giant flying epic such as the Ashpeak Drake. Climb up and hold on, Brynn. Watch out for those barrel rolls!"

New Flying Epic Creature

Following a preview of the Ark of the Forge boss fight last April, featuring a massive flaming hammer, Yellow Brick Games unveiled the Ashpeak Drake in the latest trailer. This colossal, fire-based creature introduces a new dimension to combat mechanics, allowing players to battle mid-flight and climb these 25-meter creatures. So far, three fire-based Epics have been revealed, each with distinct styles and abilities, with six more creatures boasting unique appearances and magical powers yet to be discovered.

Custom Combat Style

The trailer highlights the customized armor and weapons players can craft with gathered loot. In the ever-changing environment of the Enclave, players must adapt to events like flash freezes and droughts using suitable materials for combat readiness. Players can define their playstyle by mastering ice, telekinetic, or fire magical weapons.

Key Features:

  • The World is Your Weapon: Utilize a revolutionary system where heat spreads, cold chills, and real-time destruction react dynamically in combat. Use telekinetic powers to hurl burning tree trunks or snap nearby trees to block attacks.
  • Weaver of Magic: Wield the Mantle, a magical cloak that channels flame, ice, and telekinetic force. Combine these powers with enchanted weapons and armor for a custom look and style.
  • Stand Against Giants: Face gigantic adversaries using a mix of swords, spells, and mobility. Climb their massive forms to attack from different angles and use environmental elements to gain an edge in battle.
  • Unstable Climate to Master: Enhance ice abilities during flash freezes or use heatwaves to start wildfires, affecting the battlefield dynamically.
  • A World Rich with Secrets: Explore wilds, cities, and hidden secrets with next-generation physics encouraging creative exploration and combat.

Eternal Strands is set to launch on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 in 2025. The game is now available to wishlist on all platforms. For more information, visit Eternal Strands.
