Lords of the Fallen is getting a Game of the Year Edition. Why?

Who really decides what “Game of the Year” is? Each publication seems to have its own awards, giving the mostly worthless award to different games. Sure, some awards are a little more official than others – but they all come down to the opinions of a select few judges. Game of the Year is a silly, pointless accolade that does little more than make marketing and PR people happy, and then let publishers re-release games with all of the game’s DLC stapled on. How meaningless is it? Well, apparently Deck 13’s action RPG Lords of the Fallen is getting a Game of the year edition.

If you haven’t played it, Lords of the Fallen is an action RPG made in the vein of Dark Souls. It’s really just in the vein though – or perhaps in vain – because though it showed a lot of potential, it just wasn’t up to the standard of the game that very obviously inspired it. It wasn’t terrible – but it certainly wasn’t game of the year.

According to German site Playfront.de, Lords of the Fallen is getting a GOTY edition, which will feature the game and all of its DLC.

Contents of the Game of the Year Edition:

  • Lords of the Fallen game
  • Ancient Labyrinth Add-On
  • Demonic Weapons Pack DLC
  • Lionheart Pack DLC
  • The Monk’s Decipher-DLC

In our review, Umar said: “Lords of the Fallen provides players with a solid experience and fun combat system, but it never provides enough reason to care about anything else. It’s a shame as the game does have a lot of potential. With a little more polish and tweaks done to the story and balance, Lords of the Fallen could be a great title. Right now though, it isn’t.”

      Funny thing about this: Now with The Witcher 3 I have the one game that I’ve been waiting for, for months and yet I still check Steam every day.
      I think it’s an addiction.

        Man that game is good. I switched over to playing it with controller and TV and it’s really epic. Not sure if I’m just too early in the game (haven’t done any monster contracts yet), but how do you find the difficulty? I started on medium and upgraded it to hard.

          I have to go hunt the first one now. My lvl1 witcher dropped a pack of lvl5 wargs with ease. I too think I need to upgrade to hard

            When you say hard you mean “Blood and Bones” and not “Death March?”

            Yes Hard, not Insane

          It gets a bit more difficult when you encounter something even just three levels above you, but I haven’t found it too challenging.
          Works great with a controller though, I’m considering streaming it to my tv as well.

            Great! But I must say the combat is greatly improved from Witcher 2.

            It feels a bit less stocky than W2, but it also feels a bit simpler.
            I’m not sure how else to put it.

            Either way. I’m loving the shit out of that game.

    I’ve checked out LotF a few times but it never really convinced me enough to actually buy it. Maybe one-day I’ll grab it on sale, I’m always up for an RPG. For now though, Witcher 3 should last me quite a while. 😀

    Its okay, for the guys who play offline, this is perfect. Wait a year, pay around R500 and you get the whole game plus all the DLC.

      With all the dlc and bug fix day one patches it is awesome I agree. But 500 is still to much for most games

      A really fun and underrated game. An action RPG that’s a mix between Dark SOuls and Darksiders. It’s a little more casual than Dark Souls but it’s really fun. You should check it out.

    I’d love to find out which publication awarded this as GOTY. Oh, that’s right……nobody did. Why don’t they just call it Lords of the Fallen bundle or something? In any event, this game is basically useless. You play this game, it offers nothing new, and nothing better than other games you COULD be playing. Plus,it’s loaded with crashes and awful bugs. I got to last boss, it was cheap as heck, so I decided to grind a bit to level up some more. Instead, running around the limited map trying to do side quests, I was rewarded with a bug that litererally removed 10 levels from my character build. I tried to quit, but every time I loaded the game, it would take 10 level points off one of my stats. And since you are only allowed 1 save, I was screwed. Garbage game is garbage. Most of the enemies were just tanks that hid behind shields…boring. There were even back to back bosses that were the same.

      Actually they received the “German Game of the Year” award. Do your homework. Just because you didn’t enjoy it doesn’t mean nobody did.
