Lords of The Fallen features a few Dark Souls

2 min read


Bandai Namco and Deck 13’s Lords of the Fallen makes no bones about its inspiration; it looks and plays a heck of a lot like Dark Souls, only it’s coming to the new systems and PC only.that’s why it’s substantially prettier. Some off-screen footage of the game has been leaked to the internet, and the game might be one to watch.

The game features three classes; Warrior, Rogue and Cleric, 15 game bosses that will all require patience and memorisation to defeat. The world will also be brimming with medieval lore, magic, weapons and gear. And yep, sounds just like Dark Souls to me…with a dash of Darksiders thrown in for good measure.

Here’s that footage, thiefed from Poland’s CD-Action EXPO, via AGB.

Here’s what the game is all about:

In an unforgiving world where no sin is ever forgotten, Harkyn, a convicted criminal, is given a chance for redemption. Just when rulers of the world get close to finding a way to banish all evil from humans, an army of the long-ago defeated god attacks the human realm. Released from prison, Harkyn and his mentor, Kaslo, set out on a mission to stop the war.

In his journey, Harkyn will forge strong alliances and face even stronger enemies. He will learn the true power of the Rhogar Lords – commanders of god’s army. He will even bring the battle to the Rhogar, travelling to the heart of the demonic dimension.

Will the god manage to enslave humans again? Is mankind really able to banish evil? Will Harkyn’s sins ever be forgiven?

A “next gen” Dark souls then? Neat. what do you think? Is this one to watch?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
