Lords of the Fallen Trailer: Lords of the Fallen is an action role-playing video game created by Deck13 and CI Games. The game came out in October 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The mobile version, which launched on February 9, 2017, for iOS and Android, is a paid game with in-app purchases and offers one-on-one swipe battle controls.
Players use physical weapons like axes and hammers to fight ferocious, disfigured foes and bosses as they traverse vast, interconnected worlds. Players take control of Harkyn, who has been dispatched on a mission to halt the invasion of the earth by the unknown demonic forces of a once-mighty god who has been dethroned.
Lords of the Fallen Gameplay Depicts Gruesome
On Thursday night, at The Game Awards, CI Games, the game’s publisher, unveiled the first gameplay trailer for The Lords of the Fallen. The new teaser, narrated by Milly Alcock of House of the Dragon fame, supposedly showcases in-game footage of the bloody, dark fantasy action for which the series is known.
The game was unveiled for the first time in August during the Gamescom Opening Night Live broadcast. When the first trailer for The Lords of the Fallen was released, it was narrated by Stranger Things’ Joseph Quinn, so at least the game has a stellar celebrity voice-over appearance.
The Lords of the Fallen takes place between the worlds of the living and the dead, a millennium after Deck13’s first Lords of the Fallen video game came out in 2014. Compared to the first Lords of the Fallen, this new instalment is supposed to be five times bigger. For those who have played other games in the Souls-like genre, the gameplay will feel instantly recognisable.
CI Games characterises the game’s action as “a fast, fluid, and tough combat system.” The caravan “hints at only a fraction of the gruelling trek that lies ahead of players as they explore this magnificently vertical universe, over five times bigger than that of its predecessor,” CI Games stated in a press release.
Carving a bloody route through demonic hordes, undead terrors, and towering bosses will need them to learn fast, fluid combat with a wide range of destructive weapons and potent magic.
For “those who would prefer a journey side by side,” the Lords of the Fallen will also have a multiplayer mode, the publisher has confirmed. The Lords of the Fallen will be available on PS5, PC, and Xbox One S, as previously stated by CI Games.
Lords of the Fallen Trailer Depicts Soul-Like Monsters
A new teaser for The Lords of the Fallen was unveiled at The Game Awards 2022, showcasing the game’s two monster-filled landscapes. The title, formerly known as Lords of the Fallen 2, was renamed The Lords of the Fallen and officially announced during Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022.
Released in 2014, the original Lords of the Fallen was notable for being one of the first famous Soulslike games that weren’t created by FromSoftware, the studio responsible for the acclaimed Elden Ring and Dark Souls. Developer Deck13 went on to create The Surge series, but in 2015, publisher CI Games began seeking a new developer for Lords of the Fallen 2, ultimately settling on its subsidiary studio, Hexworks.
Until the game’s official announcement at Gamescom 2022, very little would be known about it. At The Game Awards 2022, a brand new gameplay trailer for The Lords of the Fallen was unveiled, providing attendees with their first glimpse at the game in action. This in-game footage shows the protagonist using light to peer into a parallel universe and provides indications about the game’s scenario.

Highlighted foes range from ghostly horrors and multi-legged monsters to boss-like wizards armed with both spells and melee attacks. It’s reminiscent of the fantasy settings of games like Elden Ring and the Dark Souls series, while also channelling the body horror style of FromSoftware’s PS4 exclusive Bloodborne.
The trailer is spoken by Milly Alcock, who also narrated the first game’s trailer, giving viewers a hint that the game’s story will revolve around the protagonist’s quest to overthrow the god Adyr. Unlike the Lords of the Fallen video shown at Gamescom, this one appears to feature an original score that works well with the game’s eerie atmosphere.
Caves, castles, and decaying cities are only some of the settings, and many of them appear in two variations, depending on whether or not the player is utilising their lantern. Both Lords of the Fallen games show clear influences from FromSoftware’s other works.

Although the Japanese production studio has a substantial back catalogue thanks to games like the shooter mecha series Armored Core and the role-playing game series King’s Field, they didn’t become well-known outside of Japan until the success of Dark Souls in 2011.
Lords of the Fallen was the first game in the Soulslike genre, which was later popularised by titles like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and the Nioh series. The success of games like Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls inspired other developers to make games with similar themes.
After the popularity of Elden Ring, CI Games and Hexworks have decided to revive the series more than eight years after its initial release. The Lords of the Fallen will eventually be appreciated by gamers.
