“Hardcore action-RPG” Lords of the Fallen unveiled


City Interactive Games, the Poland based developer and publisher responsible for the Sniper: Ghost Warrior games, has announced Lords of the Fallen for the PC, PlayStation 4 and next Xbox. The game is described as a “hardcore action-RPG” with combat and difficulty akin to Dark Souls, and a skill tree like those found in Borderlands.

The game is being headed by Tomasz Gop, who was the senior producer for the critically acclaimed The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. “Our team is building Lords of the Fallen specifically for players who enjoy taking on huge challenges, where the odds are stacked against them,” explained Gop. “From the very beginning, Lords of the Fallen will intrigue and satisfy players’ hunger to explore each corner of a brand new world, freely customize and build their own character, and take down some of the most epic enemies ever seen.”

The game takes place in a “richly created fantasy world”. According to the game’s lore, the gods of this world have failed mankind and as such there’s an “apparently unstoppable supernatural force” which is causing all sorts of chaos. Players will take on the role of a bloke called Harkyn who decides to try and make a difference. The game will feature player decisions that will alter the state of the world around them. No release date as yet but we’ll keep an eye on this one; there’s potential here.
