At release Last Epoch will feature a rich story which involves travelling through time to be present for many pivotal moments in the history of Eterra. By the onset of the Ruined Era, the battles to save the world have been fought - and lost. Only through changing the past can this future be avoided, and the ruinous machinations of the Void be prevented.
As knowing where - and when! - you are is so integral to the story, we have been working to better communicate this information to you. We are currently prototyping Era Banners which will be displayed at strategic moments to keep you in the loop, as well as when you are entering certain locations to ensure you recognize the significance of where you are. To offer examples, you might be shown an Era Banner when first stepping foot into the City of Welryn, or after travelling back to an earlier moment in time.
One of the conversations we are currently having internally revolves around colouring. Should they be consistent? If not, what should determine the colours used? We’re leaning in favour of having them be colour-coded, with each of the four Eras being represented by a specific colour. Do you agree with this? If not, what alternative would you propose?
We’d love to hear your thoughts!
