Lords of the Fallen: Coming October

One of the things we’re always mentioning on The Next Level is that there rarely seems to be a new IP forthcoming from the big name publishers. Square Enix have announced Lords of the Fallen which is one such title set for release on PC, XBOX One and Playstation 4 in October this very year. It’s also one that looks right up my alley.

Lords of the Fallen is an Action RPG – think Dark Souls or Dragon’s Dogma for the style of game I mean. This game looks like it will be more like the former than the latter in terms of tone though I’m expecting it to be a bit more forgiving!

Here’s the official wordage:

n Lords of the Fallen, you are Harkyn, the best of the worst of humanity. A convicted criminal, Harkyn is given a chance for redemption. But just as the 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?

The game promises a large variety of tactical medieval based fighting techniques. Even regular enemies are said to offer challenging duels. What interests me though, is that although the equipment and skills and so on are geared into three classes: Rogue, Fighter and Cleric, the player is given the chance to mix and match these as they choose.

Here’s a couple of screen shots to tie you over:
