Lords of the Fallen Release Date, Platforms, Gameplay, and More

Lords of the Fallen is one of the most anticipated games this fall. Shortly after the release of Lies of P, players will have to deal with another soulslike, albeit completely different from the one created by Neowiz. Lords of the Fallen, in fact, takes clear inspiration from the Dark Souls series and acts as a mix between reboot and sequel to the title of the same name released in 2014. In this article, therefore, given that the launch date is getting closer and closer, we have decided to gather in one place all the most important information you need to know before purchasing Lords of the Fallen.


Lords of the Fallen release date

The market-only launch of Lords of the Fallen is getting closer and closer. In fact, on 13 October 2023, all owners of PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S will finally be able to explore the game world created by the developers.

Lords of the Fallen demo

Also in the interview we quoted, the developers had stated that a Lords of the Fallen demo was not in the works, although this could change in the future. However, with the game coming out soon, it is highly unlikely that the developers will decide to retrace their steps with such little time. This is a choice that caused discussion in the community, but the development team had to make choices and preferred to use all its efforts for the creation of the final work, rather than allocating resources, time, and money to the creation of a demo.

Lords of the Fallen story

As for the Lords of the Fallen story, we haven't been given a ton of details about it. We know that the game is set a thousand years after the fall of the demon Adyr and that our character's task is to wander between the two worlds (of the living and the dead) to put an end to the existence of this god once and for all evil. Obviously, the task of the Dark Crusader that we impersonate will not be simple at all and, during the course of our adventure, we will be called to fight against monstrosities of all kinds.

Lords of the Fallen gameplay

Gameplay-wise, Lords of the Fallen takes a lot of inspiration from the Dark Souls series. Furthermore, since it is a mix between reboot and sequel of the title of the same name released in 2014, it takes up some of the game mechanics that we saw in the previous chapter, improving and adapting them to keep up with the times.

However, the most important thing that you will need to pay particular attention to is the fact that you can change kingdoms. In fact, Lords of the Fallen takes place in two different realms: Axiom and Umbral, both characterized by their own characteristics and peculiarities. The peculiar thing is that to change realm, you will have to sacrifice one of your lives. Consequently, if you are in Axiom and die, you will be resurrected but in the world of Umbral.

Finally, from the point of view of the actual gameplay, therefore the way of approaching enemies and bosses, Lords of the Fallen is full of interesting ideas that could excite veterans of the genre. If you want to have a more complete idea of this aspect, we refer you to a gameplay video recently published by the developers, as well as some useful tips to follow to get the better of your opponents.

Lords of the Fallen multiplayer

Since the very first announcements, the developers have confirmed the possibility of playing multiplayer, making use of both a PvP and a PvE mode. So if you intend not to face the dangers that lurk in the realms of Axiom and Umbral alone, Lords of the Fallen gives you the opportunity to join your friends or other players to explore the game world and face the fearsome bosses that infest him.

Also regarding the multiplayer aspect of the game, the developers released an interview in which they explained in detail what their idea was and what they wanted to implement in the game. Consequently, if you are interested in having more details on how the Lords of the Fallen multiplayer mode works, we invite you to read the following article.

Lords of the Fallen open world

Will Lords of the Fallen be an open world game? The answer is no. Although the developers have repeatedly said that there will be a vast world to explore, both in the realms of Axiom and that of Umbral, the game is not a true open world. To be clear, there will not be the freedom of exploration and the vastness that, for example, we were able to admire in Elden Ring.

However, that doesn't mean there won't be things to explore. The game world, in fact, is full of mysteries and secrets to discover. Consequently, if you want to have a more complete vision of the game world and story, you will still have to dedicate a lot of time to exploration, even if Lords of the Fallen is not strictly an open world title.

Lords of the Fallen gamepass

If you are wondering whether Lords of the Fallen will be available from launch on Game Pass, unfortunately, the answer is negative. There is no news on this matter, neither official nor rumors, so at the moment it is not even known if the title will arrive on Microsoft's subscription service. However, should an official announcement be made regarding this issue, we will promptly report it to you. Consequently, if you want to stay updated and not miss any news regarding Lords of the Fallen and the world of gaming in general, we invite you to continue following us.
