The Lords of the Fallen, or the artist formerly known as Lords of the Fallen 2 — also not to be confused with the game of the same name without The that came out in 2014 — is teased as coming next year!
Publisher CI Games and developer Hexworks are announcing that the game will stay in the realms of the next generation as the madly-desired sequel will be coming to the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam.
Stranger Things’ Joseph Quinn narrates the trailer above as it premiered at Gamescom Opening Night Live. According to a press release, the trailer above showcases the world players will explore and how it is split between the living and the dead —a mechanic that will come into play when the game launches but no word on how just yet.
“The 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 cruellest 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 both 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?
The Lords of the Fallen takes place over a thousand years after the events of the first game and introduces a new adventure in a world nearly five times the size of the original game.
The original game was developed by Deck13 but the sequel was then moved to HexWorks. Read more on the PlayStation Blog.
