Developer Hexworks has announced that Lords of the Fallen, a reboot of the same-named game from 2014, will launch October 13. The action-RPG is also referred to as a spiritual successor, as well, with preorders available now.
In addition to the release date, Hexworks also revealed the first gameplay footage for Lords of the Fallen with an almost four-minute trailer. The video features Iron Maiden’s “Fear of the Dark” and shows off combat against foes big and small. Like the first game, this action-RPG draws inspiration from the Dark Souls franchise.
There are three different editions to preorder for Lords of the Fallen. The standard edition offers the game; the deluxe edition (physical and digital) has the Dark Crusader starting class, digital soundtrack and more; and finally the collector’s edition (physical only) boasts all of the above plus a 10-inch Dark Crusader figurine, steelbook, and more.
Lords of the Fallen was originally announced as a sequel back in 2014–over eight years ago. In 2020, CI Games decided to have Hexworks finish development of Lords of the Fallen, after Defiant Games took a crack at it from 2018-19.
