The latest new IP from EA’s BioWare studio may be getting a significant revamp before it is even released.

That’s according to Kotaku, which has word from “a source familiar with goings on at BioWare Austin” that upcoming title Shadow Realms was completely overhauled in late October.

The game was revealed as a 4v1 online action RPG to be released episodically beginning this year. The last time it was spoken of BioWare said it was planning on sending out alpha invitations last October, although these plans were subsequently delayed.

Now the studio is said to be planning in a full campaign mode and a 2017 release on PS4, Xbox One and PC. It is also presumed that the changes will mean the game is no longer free-to-play.
