Lords of the Fallen grisly new trailer makes Elden Ring look tame

Lords of the Fallen grisly new trailer makes Elden Ring look tame

The latest Lords of the Fallen trailer has dropped and boy, does it make Elden Ring look tame!

Lords of the Fallen is shaping up to be one of 2023’s most highly anticipated releases and a treat for Soulsborne enthusiasts.

Developed by Hexworks, Lords of the Fallen is the follow-up to the first game of the same name, released in 2014 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In Lords of the Fallen (2023) the tyranny of Adyr may be over, but his sinister presence still torments the realm of Axiom and his influence plagues the lands to this very day.

During Gamescom's Opening Night Live, we were treated to a gruesome new trailer featuring plenty of high-octane gameplay that, up until this point, revealed a never-seen-before area of the game. A gameplay demonstration also showcased the ‘groundbreaking’ dual-realm mechanic as well as its “brutal melee, ranged, and magic combat”.

In an interview in February 2023, Lords of the Fallen creative director Cezar Vîrtosu proudly wore the Dark Souls influence on his sleeve. “Our strategy was that, yes, we will be Dark Souls 4.5,” he explained. “We will be that semi-open world that people crave, that more vertical-level design - because that's what we want, too. Every level branches out into other levels, like a T-shaped intersection. And every three levels loop back into each other. It's like a chain of pretzels.”

“Taking place more than a thousand years after the events of the first game, The Lords of the Fallen introduces an all-new adventure in a vast, interconnected world, more than five times larger than the original game,” reads the press release. “An expansive RPG experience – filled with NPC quests, compelling characters, and rich narrative – players will need to create their own hero before tackling the immersive single player campaign. They will also have the option to invite a second player to join their adventure in uninterrupted online co-op – a new feature for the franchise.”

Powered by the Unreal Engine 5, Lords of the Fallen will be released for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on Friday 13 October 2023 and hopefully, it won't be unlucky for some.
