Lords of the Fallen is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC on October 13 this year.

Revealed in a gameplay reveal trailer, (an exclusive, extended version of which can be viewed above), developer Hexworks has given fans a first proper look at the Dark Souls and Elden Ring-esque game running in Unreal Engine 5.

IGN’s extended gameplay reveal trailer is a hefty four minutes and shares some story details too. “Mournstead has fallen, it’s great army decimated by the legions of Adyr, the Demon God,” reads a dramatic opening screen. “But one light still flickers in the ever-growing gloom, the light of the Dark Crusader.”

The trailer then slips into gameplay, showing a range of environments and enemies present in the spiritual successor to 2014’s Lords of the Fallen.

The follow-up was re-revealed at Gamescom 2022 after years of troubled development spread across several different studios. Originally introduced as a straight sequel called The Lords of the Fallen, the game went through a subtle (and slightly confusing) rebrand and is now being dubbed a spiritual successor to the original game of the same name.

In our 7/10 review of the original, IGN said: “Lords of the Fallen has fun combat and a good spin on Dark Souls’ skill system, but its hero is overpowered.”
