Spanish studio Hexworks and Polish publisher CI Games presented the release trailer for the dark fantasy action/RPG Lords of the Fallen, which is coming out tomorrow, October 13, 2023, on Windows PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S
As a reminder, Lords of the Fallen is a sequel/reboot of the 2014 game of the same name, which was developed by CI Games itself in collaboration with Deck13. The first game received rather restrained reviews, but the sequel was created almost immediately. In 2018, the development was restarted with the new Defiant Studio. And a year later, it was restarted again. The current version of Lords of the Fallen was announced in 2022.
We are expecting not just another Soulslike, according to the developers, they are trying to create “the second reference version [after FromSoftware]” for the Soulsborne genre, a kind of Dark Souls 4.5. Among the features of Lords of the Fallen are two parallel worlds of the living and the dead; fast and complex tactical combat system; magic; online co-op; 9 starting classes of heroes.
We’ll find out if Hexworks has released its Dark Souls 4.5 tomorrow. The price of Lords of the Fallen on Steam is 1499 UAH.
