It's like Lords of the Fallen 2.

CI Games announced The Lords of the Fallen during Opening Night Live for Gamescom. This is a sequel to Lords of the Fallen from 2014, which itself is a fantasy action-RPG in the same vein as Dark Souls. While the first game was developed by CI Games and Deck 13, this sequel is being developed by HEXWORKS.

The Lords of the Fallen was revealed with a three-minute cinematic trailer (seen below). It shows off the game's new dark fantasy setting. We also get a look at one of the game's core features, a world split between the realm of the living and the dead.

This sequel takes place more than a thousand years after the events of the first game. The game world is more than five times larger than the original game. It's a world filled with NPC quests, a variety of characters, and a fresh single player campaign. Though you are free to tackle the game on your own, you can invite another player for uninterrupted online co-op.

The Lords of the Fallen is being developed for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.

Hexworks is led by Executive Producer, Saul Gascon (Dead by Daylight, PayDay 2,) and Creative Director, Cezar Virtosu (Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed: Origins). Founded in 2020, they lead a global team of over 75 internal developers and a network of external partners, working together to create a new dark vision for the divided worlds of The Lords of the Fallen. Powered by Unreal Engine 5, The Lords of the Fallen is designed exclusively for new-generation consoles and PC.

“The Lords of the Fallen is the spiritual successor fans of the original title have always wanted,” said Cezar Virtosu, Creative Director. “The game is significantly larger, with a vast, interconnected dual world split between the realms of the living and dead, that players can explore alone or with friends. It's darker and more challenging, with faster soulslike combat, stronger thematic, richer narrative, deeper RPG systems, and more immersive storytelling."
Players can look forward to a full gameplay reveal of The Lords of the Fallen later this year.
