The Babylon's Fall player count may still be struggling to reach double digits, but that's not stopping its second season of content from releasing. Starting on 31st May 2022 and lasting all the way until the end of November (seasons have now doubled in length), The Light of Aaru adds a Kuftaali VIP to your HQ as well as a new story chapter. There's also a new Battle Pass to work through, another weapon type and element, and new enemies to face.
Over 80 new quests will be added to the game as part of Season Two, which covers Skirmishes, Sieges, and Duels. They come together to tell the story of a Ziggurat under new leadership and facing a new truth. "Witness the story of Elysium in the Ziggurat “Tower of Benben” that stands tall in the desert." Along the way, you'll source fresh loot, including the new Pistol weapon type and Sun element, which are both said to expand the scope of character builds.
After the initial Season Two update at the end of this month, a second update on 12th July 2022 will introduce another story chapter and further quests, bosses, rankings, weapons, armour sets, and cosmetic items. One week later, the Sun Festival limited-time event arrives. No details have been shared on this, but the official blog post does feature a female and male character nearly in the nude.
And then there's the Battle Pass, which will include another 100 items for you to unlock. The higher the rank you achieve in these Battle Passes, the bigger the discount for the next season will be. The third season is already in development despite the lacking player base. PlatinumGames recently said it will "continue to provide new content for the game and make improvements based on player feedback, striving to keep existing players playing and to attract newcomers".
Are you one of the PS5, PS4 players still on Babylon's Falls? Identify yourselves in the comments below.
This had 1 player on Steam the other day, i'm guessing there's a season pass or something what's forcing these updates to be made.
"80+ quests, new story, more weapon types"
"The 80+ people still playing Babylon's Fall will get new quests, story mode and more weapon types"
Fixed it for ya 😉
Man, imagine devs continuing a game just for you. That one fan must be ecstatic!
Is it really that bad? I like hack and slash games. It doesn't look much worse than many others.
According to PSNProfiles there are 20 players on PS5 and 10 on PS4.
It's not even worth risking trying to go for an easy platinum if you need other players for it.
Well I hope their customer enjoys all the new content.
Can they just kill this off please, I am getting really uncomfortable seeing this limp along.
Why is game's success now determined based on streaming counts/player counts? Who's to say people aren't just enjoying it on their console?
@Anke according to a roadmap there is one trophy that requires another player. You have to send a like on the end screen to another player. So that one dude on steam is screwed for 100% XD
Man what happened… I’m one of those weird Platinum fans who don’t like Bayonetta, so the only big action game they have for this year is a live service game with 1 player
Crazy how this game is getting more and faster support/updates/content than Halo Infinite
It's pretty bad.
That's a lot of effort and money to satisfy all 10 of their player base
Actually enjoy this, but they need to make it free to play if they're gonna keep it going.
I might be in the minority but this is kind of sad. These folks are still putting in work for a truly unbelievable low amount of players, in a way it's admirable even if their game isn't very good. Hopefully the updates are decent a few more folks pick it up just to make the work feel worthwhile.
@rjejr 80 is awfulllllly generous
Hey devs of this game…ever heard of a mercy kill?
@WallyWest it has a battle pass
Player feedback? I'm sure both of them will be happy that they've been listened to.
This news has more comments than this game has active players.
Kinda surprised they haven't given up on it yet
Love how you can say "I'm sure all 2 players will be pleased" and it's not even a hyperbole.
@Logonogo That's my attempt at glass half full.😂
@Rmg0731 sad state of affairs init. Wouldn't mind this going f2p as well.
I hate to sound like that kind of Devil's Advocate but I'm holding out some glimmer of hope that Platinum can pull a No Man's Sky on this one.
@Deoxyr1bose From what I understand platinum had some kind of a winning concept and square said "hell no, this needs to be by the books live service" and forced them to scrap anything that has a pulse. Unsure of specifics but I find it plausible.
I'll probably buy this once it's $15-$20, can't possibly be so bad and sounds like it will have decent amounts of content by that time
I'll give this consideration when it hits the under £15 sale..i really enjoyed my time with godfall even though that was savaged by reviewers and gamers and it was a pretty cool game..
I might buy this if the graphics are overhauled/improved since they're too murky for my taste, and if they lower the price. Hopefully this game will get a redemption arc akin to No Man's Sky or at least Fallout 76, instead of being abandoned like Anthem
...and no players. 🤣
im only interested in offline one player campaign, if this game was designed like that itl be in my collection. online games are limited only so many people in to these and their else where.
