Lords of the Fallen Summary
Next gen Dark Souls? Or just a wonky test-tube clone?
Some unfortunate Lords of the Fallen players have been experiencing a game-breaking bug since the game launched last week, but a new patch released yesterday claims to have fixed it.
As bugs go, it was quite an impressive one - it caused players to fall into a pit in the Catacombs level and get stuck in an infinite loop of death. If that's happened to you already this patch won't get you out, but it should prevent the same thing happening in the future.
Here's some slightly unusual but welcome news; Lord of the Fallen's European publisherhas revealed that the fantasy epic will be available worldwide from today, rather than a staggered release across several regions.
Usually British stores release games on a Friday, which was set to be the case with Lords of the Fallen. Square hasn't given a reason for the change, but really... who cares why?
In the world of action RPG Lords of the Fallen, our protagonist Harkyn is The Most Dangerous Man Alive, a convicted sinner, murderer and "stain on humanity" who happens to be the only one who can turn back the tide of demons rampaging across the land.
Developer CI Games has released athat outlines the game's high fantasy backstory, and also shows off some of its gloomy, foreboding environments.
Publisher Square Enix has announced that Ci Games' action RPG Lords of the Fallen will be getting a 'Day One Edition' that contains new story content, new weapons and a copy of the game's soundtrack.
All we know about said story content is that it's called The Monk's Decipher. An accompanying press release to the announcement say that it "offers more single player action, uncovering hidden secrets throughout the three worlds Harkyn explores in Lords of the Fallen."
CI Games has announced that action RPG dungeon-crawler Lords of the Fallen to PC and current-gen consoles this October 31.
It's way too obvious to describe the game as a bit like Dark Souls. But really, it's a bit like Dark Souls.
