For those who played the original Lords of the Fallen back in 2014, you may be pleased to know the sequel is on its way. However, in the process this Souls-like action game has managed to find its way to a third studio.
Hexworks were opened in May by publishers CI Games and will be working on Lords of the Fallen 2 as their debut title. They’ll be taking over from CI Games, who themselves took over from the original’s Deck 13 Interactive. The aim this time is to turn Lords of the Fallen into a ‘dark fantasy’, and push the souls-like experience. Which, having played through the original’s lacklustre campaign and environments can only be an improvement!
“Lords of the Fallen 2 is a shift from the original’s power fantasy to a dark fantasy. The sequel will also be much more loyal to the challenging combat experience that the Soulsborne and Souls-like communities enjoy.”CI Games
Hexworks have been working on the title for a number of months now, but a release is still a long way off. Far from the 2017 initial estimate. Hopefully this extra time and shift towards dark fantasy will be enough to solidify Lords of the Fallen 2‘s character in a world where soulsborne games are becoming increasingly common.
