Lords of the Fallen's release is imminent, and while we aren't there quite yet, we have a new trailer to tide us over in the meantime. Prepare to die or something like it from 13th October on PS5.
Reputedly more than five times larger than the original 2014 Lords of the Fallen, this bleak fantasy world is an intricate, interconnected play space in the style of the best Souls-likes. As a Dark Crusader, you must journey through the realms of the living and the dead and overcome colossal boss encounters in order to bring light to this blackened world or ensure it is consumed by darkness.
Key features, as described by publisher CI Games and developer Hexworks, are as follows:
- Explore Vast, Interconnected Worlds – Journey across two expansive, parallel worlds in your epic quest to overthrow Adyr. While the living realm presents its own brutal challenges, untold terrors lurk in the nightmarish realm of the dead.
- Define Your Own Legend – Fully customize your character’s appearance from a wide array of visual options before selecting one of nine character classes. Whichever starting path you take, develop your character to your own playstyle by upgrading stats, weapons, armour and spells.
- Master Fast, Challenging Fluid Tactical Combat – Only those that master the deep, tactical combat can hope to survive. Choose from 100s of uniquely brutal weapons, or forgo metal for magic with devastating attacks of the arcane.
- Unite or Fight in Online Multiplayer – 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.
- Wield a Device of Ungodly Power – 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.
- Rise from Death – 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.
