Today at The Game Awards 2022, developer HEXWORKS (a CI Games studio) today showcased the first glimpse of gameplay for the much-anticipated AAA dark-fantasy action RPG, The Lords of the Fallen. Powered by Unreal Engine 5, the reboot to the 2014 hit, Lords of the Fallen, will launch for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S next year, and is available to wishlist on all platforms now.
Narrated by Milly Alcock, rising star of House of the Dragon, the teaser trailer was captured fully in-game and offers the first glimpse into HEXWORKS’ dark-fantasy world, created exclusively for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5. The gist? The Lords of the Fallen takes place over a thousand years after the events of the first game. The game will take players on an all-new epic adventure through a vast and sprawling world, split at its very core between the realm of the living and the dead. An expansive RPG experience, players will need to traverse between the two fully interconnected worlds, each offering its own unique pathways, side quests, NPCs, enemies and treasures.
The trailer hints at only a fraction of the gruelling journey that lies ahead of players as they explore this breathtakingly vertical world, over five times bigger than that of its predecessor. They will need to master fast, fluid combat, with a wide range of devastating weapons and powerful magic as they carve a bloody path through demonic hordes, undead terrors, and towering bosses. The title also offers seamless online multiplayer for players who would rather venture side by side.
Key features of The Lords of The Fallen includes a vast, interconnected world – over five times larger than the original game and an expansive RPG experience (which includes a huge roster of NPCs to meet and stories to uncover). Additionally, the game will feature, tactical combat and devastating magic – a vast array of offensive and defensive spells to master. Plus, the game will feature seamless world exploration in co-op mode with uninterrupted online multiplayer, and even full character customization and progression.
“Overwhelmed by the phenomenal response to our announcement trailer, we couldn’t wait to reveal in-game footage of the concepts shown and put a spotlight on The Lord of the Fallen’s thematic and quality” said Cezar Virtosu, Creative Director at HEXWORKS. “By developing exclusively for new-generation platforms, we’re able to bring the full scope and detail of our dark fantasy vision to life and look forward to revealing even more exciting things come 2023.”
