Lords of the Fallen Summary
Next gen Dark Souls? Or just a wonky test-tube clone?
Here's some slightly unusual but welcome news; Lord of the Fallen's European publisherhas revealed that the fantasy epic will be available worldwide from today, rather than a staggered release across several regions.
Usually British stores release games on a Friday, which was set to be the case with Lords of the Fallen. Square hasn't given a reason for the change, but really... who cares why?
In the world of action RPG Lords of the Fallen, our protagonist Harkyn is The Most Dangerous Man Alive, a convicted sinner, murderer and "stain on humanity" who happens to be the only one who can turn back the tide of demons rampaging across the land.
Developer CI Games has released athat outlines the game's high fantasy backstory, and also shows off some of its gloomy, foreboding environments.
Publisher Square Enix has announced that Ci Games' action RPG Lords of the Fallen will be getting a 'Day One Edition' that contains new story content, new weapons and a copy of the game's soundtrack.
All we know about said story content is that it's called The Monk's Decipher. An accompanying press release to the announcement say that it "offers more single player action, uncovering hidden secrets throughout the three worlds Harkyn explores in Lords of the Fallen."
CI Games has announced that action RPG dungeon-crawler Lords of the Fallen to PC and current-gen consoles this October 31.
It's way too obvious to describe the game as a bit like Dark Souls. But really, it's a bit like Dark Souls.
Deck13 and CI Games have been showing off their fantasy action RPG Lords of the Fallen, and you can check out the resulting seven-minute gameplay video here.
While you do so, try not to think about any other third-person dungeon-crawlers with nasty enemy critters, classless progression and punishing combat.
