‘Lords Of The Fallen’ Release Date, Platforms & Game Length

Lords Of The Fallen

Confusingly, this sequel/spiritual successor to the 2014 Souls-like title Lords Of The Fallen is being released with the same name. Quite why publisher CI Games didn’t stick the number 2 on the end is unknown but we’re assuming it’s because it’s being billed as a reboot as well as a follow-on from the previous game. 

In the first game, players took on the role of Harkyn who was trying to thwart the demonic forces that were attacking the Earth. It was a fun title despite the hard difficulty level but the game was overshadowed by similar games that were released around the same time.

This latest title is set 1000 years after the original game and it will feature the tactical combat, class options, and powerful bosses that the genre is known for. As one of the fabled Dark Crusaders, you will journey through the realms of the living and the dead on a on a holy quest to “restore radiance to the Six Beacons of the Sentinels.”


“After an age of the cruellest tyranny, the demon God, Adyr, was finally defeated. But Gods… do not fall forever. Now, aeons later, Adyr’s resurrection draws nigh. As one of the fabled Dark Crusaders, journey through both the realms of the living and the dead in this expansive RPG experience, featuring colossal boss battles, fast challenging combat, thrilling character encounters, and deep, immersive storytelling. Will your legend be one of light… or one of darkness?”


  • Journey across two expansive, parallel worlds
  • Choose from one of nine character classes, including Knight, Rogue, and Fire Apprentice
  • Choose from 100s of uniquely brutal weapons or harness the power of magic
  • Play the game alone or with one other player

Will you survive the quest? Or will you throw your joypad across the room and vow to never play another Souls-like title again? Let us know how you get on with the game in the comments below.
