The Lords of the Fallen, a new dark fantasy action-RPG, has just been revealed during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live! We at CI Games are excited to shed a little more light on the title’s vast world of shadow and chaos with the Sony community today.
In development for PlayStation 5, the Lords of the Fallen introduces players to an all-new adventure in a world that has fallen into an even darker age, over a thousand years after the events of the original 2014 hit. Players can look forward to exploring a vast and expansive, interconnected world, more than five times larger than the original game – either fighting alone in the darkness, or side-by-side in seamless online co-op.
Cezar Virtosu, Creative Director of Hexworks, describes The Lords of the Fallen as the “spiritual successor fans of the original game have always wanted.The world is significantly vaster, darker and more challenging, with faster, unforgiving combat, deeper lore, and much more immersive storytelling.”
The very first trailer for The Lords of the Fallen is a three minute cinematic narrated by the iconic Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things, Game of Thrones). Feast your eyes below:
Now that you’ve had your first taste of the accursed world of The Lords of the Fallen, we’re now going to add some further flesh to the bone with the following gameplay details:
Explore two vast, parallel worlds
From the ethereal heights of Skywalk Bridge, to the decrepit depths of the Shuja swamps, players will journey across two parallel worlds in their epic quest to overthrow Adyr, the tyrannical, demon God. While the living realm presents its own brutal challenges, untold terrors lurk in the nightmarish realm of the dead.
You’ll be equipped with a lantern of ungodly power that equips its bearer with the ability to cross between these two worlds. But it’s more than a key between realms: use this dark art to reach forgotten places, unearth fabled treasures, and even manipulate the very soul of your foe.
Rise from death
If you fall in the world of the living, you’ll rise again… in the world of the dead. You now have one final chance to return to your living state, as all manner of hellish creature descends upon you.
Unite or fight in online multiplayer
Adyr’s colossal Lords of Rhogar do not fall easily, but help is at hand for those whose pride permits it. Brave your entire quest side-by-side in uninterrupted, online co-op, with fitting rewards for completing community events. But be warned – heroes from other realms can, and will invade.
Master fast, challenging combat
In a land overrun by demons, amid a world plagued by suffering, only those that master the fast challenging combat stand but a hope of survival. Choose from 100s of uniquely brutal weapons, or forgo metal for magic with devastating attacks of the arcane.
Fully customise and develop your own character
Fully customise your character’s appearance from a wide array of visual options, before selecting one of nine character classes. Whichever starting path you take, develop your character to your own playstyle by upgrading stats, weapons, armour and spells.
We look forward to raising our lanterns and casting further light on The Lords of the Fallen in the near future. To ensure you’re among the first to hear about all future updates, wishlist the game now:
