The Lords of the Fallen, a new dark-fantasy action RPG, was unveiled during Gamescom’s ‘Opening Night Live’. Developed by HEXWORKS, the reboot of the 2014 hit, Lords of the Fallen, is in development for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, and is powered by Unreal Engine 5.
The Lords of the Fallen was revealed with a three-minute cinematic trailer showcasing the game’s new dark fantasy setting, narrated by actor Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things, Game of Thrones). CI Games also revealed the game’s new title and logo, as well as key art illustrating the vast world, split between the realm of the living and the dead – a core gameplay feature.
Now, where were we with The Lords of the Fallen?
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.
In 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.
With all this information and a powerful announcement trailer, The Lords of the Fallen looks to hopefully light up the gaming world. All I know is Joseph Quinn can do no wrong, especially when narrating a high fantasy epic.
