Hi guys! Today I will talk about Eternal Return: Black Survival. As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).
Table of Contents
The game doesn’t really have a storyline. It has interesting characters though and each one of them has a unique personality, a few quotes and a small backstory.
The backstory and quotes give the characters you play life and makes it more entertaining when you pick one to play as.
Eternal Return: Black Survival is a game that combines Battle Royale, MOBA, and Survival elements. Before the game starts you pick one of the characters available to play as. There are a total of 24 characters at the moment but not all of them are unlocked.
You start with two characters unlocked and the rest you can unlock with in-game currency which you get by completing daily missions and by playing the game in general. It doesn’t require a lot of time to unlock two or three more characters and personally even though right now I can unlock 2 more characters(currently I have 4 unlocked characters in total) with the currency I have gathered, I don’t do it because I don’t feel like playing with any other characters.
Till now I have only played with one character a total of 127 games and a single game with another character. I am not a person who likes to try everything, I have a very particular taste and I stick to the characters I like and since I can literally always play the same character in every game(because there is no ban system or something that prevents a player from doing this) I don’t feel the need to get another character.
Now, let’s talk about how the game is played. Before the match begins you choose one of the areas as your starting area(the place where you will appear at the start of the game), and you can also choose one of the recommended builds for your character(these builds are rated by players and there are generally very good.
Each area has different kinds of materials available and based on your build you will have to go to a lot of different areas to find the materials needed to craft the items of your build.
As time passes, areas will become restricted(you won’t be able to access restricted areas without starting your blow-up timer) till only one area remains. Besides you, there are another 17 players in the game and your purpose is to be the last man standing.
There are many details that it’s better to learn by playing the game since this is just a review describing what the game is about and not a guide to teach you how to play the game.
Eternal Return: Black Survival is still on Early Access but it is growing fast and if this keeps up it won’t be long till it becomes the next League of Legends or Dota 2 in terms of popularity.
The game also has a ranking system similar to other MOBA and it’s challenging, so if you are the competitive type then you should give it a shot.
Besides the solo mode, there are also duo modes and squad modes where players are divided into groups of two or three respectively.
Duo and Squad modes also exist for ranked games but right now they aren’t available to all regions because the player base isn’t big enough right now to sustain them. Even solos in some regions aren’t available all the time, for example in Europe they are available only 10 hours per day at the time of writing this article.
Visually the game is at the same level as other popular MOBA, in a few words, it’s decent. The thing I like though is that the characters have an anime-like appearance since I watch a lot of anime.
The character’s appearance is quite unique and there are also customization options through skins you can get for some of them that change their appearance in-game. As for the environment that you will play, it’s always the same stage but it’s pretty big and no game feels the same because the areas that are restricted in each game are random.
Let me summarize what you should keep from this article.
The gameplay is very good and entertaining, and the game also has a ranking system. In this game, it is generally easy to learn the basics but it’s hard to master.
As for the visuals, they are decent but nothing special, it’s what you would expect from a MOBA. There are also skins you can purchase for some characters.
If you like this types of games then it’s certainly worth a try especially since it is absolutely free to play.
General Rating: 9
