The Amazing Eternals is a free to play upcoming team based hero shooter game by the developers behind the Hero Shooter Warframe that was released recently. Considering The Amazing Eternals is also a hero shooter it had surprised quite a bit to see a developer another game this is almost entirely similar to their last one. That is until we saw the gameplay in action and from what we can tell The Amazing Eternals manages to do just enough new things to make it its own new thing.
Amazing Eternals is A New Take On The Hero Shooter Genre
With so many hero shooter games on the market like Overwatch, Lawbreakers, Paladins, and Battleborn it’s safe to say that the market for Hero Shooter games has become saturated but The Amazing Eternals manages to do just enough to give it some standing ground. Unlike other Hero Shooter games, The Amazing Eternals is a card focused game in which each hero has a deck of card.
The deck of cards contain a variety of abilities, weapons and add other gameplay elements that are drawn during the game. This results in a whole new way to add appeal to the hero shooter games especially with the unique take Amazing Eternals has taken on the genre. The way you arrange these abilities and weapon cards can have game changing effects on the build of your character establishing it as a crucial gameplay element rather than just another gimmick.

Artistic ‘70s Pulp Vibes
What happens when Hearthstone and Overwatch have a baby? The answer is The Amazing Eternals. The visuals and art style has a 70 pulp vibe which definitely makes the game worth checking out for anyone who’s fed up with all the futuristic designs in games. It does have more of a fantasy feel which the card designs, vintage sci-fi armors, and environment emphasize.
From what we’ve seen from the gameplay of the game it will be class based with a variety of quirky and vintage style heroes. One look at the game and you can tell that it’s a mish mash of different genres, styles and several concepts that look good but will they play well? Only time will tell. The Amazing Eternals isn’t focused on trying to evolve the Hero Shooter genre, they’re more focused on making it easier to shoot other players which is commendable, to say the least.
Considering the game is free to play and does have a rather unique setting as well as being helmed by the developers of Warframe and Unreal Tournament, it just might be able to make a mark in the online gaming community.
