Lords of the Fallen has finally received its first gameplay trailer, as well as a release date for the game, which is set for October of this year.
Need a Souls-like to keep you excited and sustained while you wait for the Elden Ring DLC to be properly revealed? Developer Hexworks has finally given us a proper gameplay trailer for the Lords of the Fallen reboot, revealing what you can expect when the game launches on October 13th – a release date that was also revealed during the trailer.
No wonder it looks like a Souls game! Big, expansive fantasy environments, tough and terrifying looking bosses, people having dialogue with you that you’re sure is telling you some story but you’re just waiting for some YouTuber to put all the lore together and watch this instead , to try to figure it out for yourself. It’s all there, and for some reason it’s set to Iron Maiden’s Fear of the Dark, which yes, sure, I think heavy metal makes sense as a genre to use, but it still feels a little odd tonally.
While this isn’t exactly raw gameplay, so we don’t know exactly how it will play out, it looks pretty promising! Not necessarily something that will hit you, but sometimes you just want to dodge heavy enemy hits and die a bunch without thinking too much about it.
Lords of the Fallen is a reboot of the 2014 game of the same name, originally introduced in 2015, but formally re-detected as a reboot last year at Gamescom Opening Night Live. The game takes place more than a thousand years after the events of the first game, so it also acts as a sequel and should be five times the size of the original.
You’ll be able to play Lords of the Fallen on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC when it launches on October 13.
