The Polish publisher CI Games (neé City Interactive) and Hexwork are trying to make a convincing presentation of their game. The question is whether they succeeded.
At the end of August, we wrote this about the game: “Lords of the Fallen introduces an all-new, epic RPG adventure in a vast, interconnected world more than five times larger than the original game. After an age of the cruelest tyranny, the demon God, Adyr, was finally defeated. But Gods… do not fall forever. Now, eons later, Adyr’s resurrection draws nigh. As one of the fabled Dark Crusaders, journey through the realms of the living and the dead in this expansive RPG experience, featuring colossal boss battles, fast, challenging combat, thrilling character encounters, and deep, immersive storytelling. Will your legend be one of light… or one of darkness? Dare to Hope.
Journey across two expansive, parallel worlds in your epic quest to overthrow Adyr. While the living realm presents its brutal challenges, untold terrors lurk in the nightmarish realm of the dead. Fully customize your character’s appearance from various visual options before selecting one of nine character classes. Whichever starting path you take, develop your character to your playstyle by upgrading stats, weapons, armor, and spells. Only those who master the deep, tactical combat can hope to survive. Choose from 100s of uniquely brutal weapons, or forgo metal for magic with devastating arcane attacks.
Experience the expansive, single-player campaign alone, or invite a second player to join your adventure in uninterrupted, online co-op. But be warned – Heroes from other realms can and will invade. Your lantern possesses the ungodly power to cross between worlds. Use this dark art to reach forgotten places, unearth fabled treasures, and even manipulate the very soul of your foe. Fall in the world of the living and 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.”
Lords of the Fallen (which has the same name as the 2014 first installment because it’s become fashionable to have multiple installments of the franchise under the same name) will be released on October 13 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC (Steam).
