The band is asking the fans to support the project; pre-order for both the game and the soundtrack is available at Indiegogo.com.
Epica recently checked in with the following news:
“Our show at Graspop on June 30th marked the end of the Requiem For The Indifferent touring cycle. We would like to thank all our loyal fans who have, once again, carried Epica to the next level. Our world-tour promoting Requiem For The Indifferent has given us a ton of wonderful new memories. We played a lot of new places like Australia, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Belarus and Dubai and welcomed new fans at every one of the 100+ shows of this world-tour. A new milestone for us was reached during Retrospect, the celebration of our 10th anniversary! We will never forget being on stage with this huge orchestra and choir in front of the 4,500 fans from all over the world.
“As you know we will take a step back from playing live shows for the upcoming months since Simone and Oliver and Coen and Linda are expecting children. During this period we will be finalizing our live CD, BluRay/DVD, Retrospect, which will be released in the autumn of this year. Besides that we are in the pre-production phase of the 6th Epica studio album which we will start to record at the end of this summer and which will be released in spring 2014. We can’t wait to share the Retrospect show and our new music with you all and we hope to see you on the road in 2014!!”
