Collaboration Will Include Purchasable In-Game Digital Collectibles of Licensed Content and IP
Phoenix, Arizona, September 23rd, 2021-
Indie game developer Razor Edge Games announces partnership with award-winning comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment. This alliance is concurrent with in-game licensing giant Epik. This collaboration will bring Valiant’s comic book personalities to life in various forms within Eden Falling – a turn-based sci-fi survival RPG that brings the true tabletop gaming experience into the digital world.
Following different storylines within the Eden Falling world, fans can and will interact with Valiant’s featured comic book personalities in various scenarios. These digital heroes and villains may appear in-game NPCS and even give players Valiant-themed quests. Players may have the ability to join forces with these men and women as they bring their particular brand of justice to the world of Eden Falling.
Razor Edge Games’ design team will be working closely with Valiant to ensure that the portrayals of these characters are consistent with their original vision.
“We look forward to players immersing themselves within the world of Eden Falling and enjoying the many Valiant comic book heroes we will feature in The Afterfall,” said Razor Edge Games CEO Mike Weiser.
“The opportunity to see iconic Valiant characters and gather cool collectibles featuring them while exploring the wastelands of EDEN FALLING is such an exciting opportunity,” said Gregg Katzman, Valiant Entertainment Director of Marketing & Publicity. “The thought of bumping into X-O MANOWAR, ETERNAL WARRIOR, and other Valiant characters is truly thrilling. I do hope the in-game adventures inspire players to also explore their local comic shop to learn even more about Valiant within the pages of the comics!"
“Bringing together Razor Edge Games with Valiant Entertainment was an obvious choice,” said Epik CEO Victor David. “We live to connect brands with games and look forward to seeing this partnership thrive and evolve.”
Heroes from Valiant’s expansive catalog might also be obtained and collected as various in-game digital collectibles such as posters, costume pieces, holograms, stickers, and much more as rewards for completing contracts (quests), discovered from within the ruins taken over by the overgrowth, or looted from those who have the audacity to challenge a players’ fortitude.
The Afterfall is a world of ferals, marauders, and basic survival from day to day is a feat in itself - so these heroes who persevered, endured, and triumphed through sheer will, are ready and willing to do whatever it takes to prevail with no apologies and no excuses.
