The Lords of the Fallen announcement trailer CI Games Hexworks Studio PlayStation 5 PS5 Xbox Series X S PC 2023 release date dark fantasy action RPG sequel

At Gamescom Opening Night Live (ONL) 2022, publisher CI Games and developer Hexworks Studio announced The Lords of the Fallen for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, and PC, a sequel to the 2014 game Lords of the Fallen. It is a dark fantasy action RPG coming in 2023, and here is the premise:

After an age of the cruellest tyranny, the demon God, Adyr, was finally defeated. But Gods… do not fall forever. Now, aeons later, Adyr’s resurrection draws nigh. As one of the fabled Dark Crusaders, journey through both the realms of the living and the dead in this expansive RPG experience, featuring colossal boss battles, fast challenging combat, thrilling character encounters, and deep, immersive storytelling. Will your legend be one of light… or one of darkness? Dare to hope.

Check out the announcement trailer for The Lords of the Fallen, which is brilliantly set to “Mother” by Danzig.

The game will feature two huge parallel worlds, a realm for the living and a realm for the dead, both of which bring their own challenges. You can fully customize your character’s appearance and choose among nine starting classes, which you can further develop as you play. The game can be played solo or with online co-op.

The Lords of the Fallen sounds like a traditional “bigger, better sequel,” and it is available to wishlist on Steam now.
