Lords of the Fallen - New Trailer & Previews

by Couchpotato, 2014-04-23 04:54:34

Namco Bandai Games has released a new trailer for Lords of the Fallen.

The Champion Lord has always been a bit different from other commanders of the Fallen God's demonic army. For them, it was all about honor and discipline. For the Champion it was all about the intensity of a duel and the bloodthirsty satisfaction from defeating an opponent. Where other Lords would respectfully circle around their opponent, the easily enraged Champion will charge right into the fray with his pure brute force. He always likes to get his hands dirty, so his weapons of choice need to be close to his body, allowing him to smell the blood of his victims. Of course, at close range, his boiling bloodlust and reckless charges don't leave him much in terms of defense, but who would stand against a hulking brute like him? You?

I also managed to roundup a few more previews this week from various sites.

The emphasis on Harkin's story is but one feature that sends the game apart from the Souls series. Combat is much faster, rolling does not take away stamina, magical spells like decoys seem more effective, and the lighting has a starker contrast. That said, you can also bank XP at a save point just as you would souls and a New Game+ is currently on the developer's agenda. We'll just have to see whether Lords of the Fallen will be able to satisfy fans of both action gameplay styles.

All in all what was shown, what we were told, and what we could figure out on our own is just a snippet when it comes to a game of this magnitude. Scheduled for release sometime in 2014 (likely near the end of it) we’ll be certain to see a lot more information over the coming months.


The game will pit you against difficult decisions that will and can change the outcome of the game. You’ll be facing every boss no matter what, but these decisions can decide if the boss is easier and will contribute to which ending you receive. So yeah, story matters. This also leads me to believe that replayability will be high. I’m quite excited to get my hands on this game and look forward to the arcade-esque fighting elements in an RPG setting.
