Everything You Need To Know About Lords Of The Fallen (2023)

One of the most promising Soulslike titles to come along in a good while, Lords of the Fallen looks set to not only bring Epic’s Unreal Engine 5 kicking and screaming into the genre, but also seeks to innovate in a number of unique ways to satisfy veterans and bring newcomers into the Soulslike fold. 

Be sure to keep this guide in your favourites as we cover everything you need to know including the release date, gameplay details, latest trailer, PC specifications and more.

Lords Of The Fallen Release Date

The Lords of the Fallen release date has officially been confirmed as October 13, 2023. Lords of the fallen is set to have a full release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S/X consoles and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Given its use of Unreal Engine 5, Lords of the Fallen has somewhat predictably not been confirmed for a release on the last generation PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles, or Nintendo Switch, as of right now. 

Is Lords Of The Fallen A Remake Or A Sequel?

The answer is that 2023’s Lords of the Fallen is actually both a remake and a sequel to 2014’s Lords of the Fallen release, as it takes place more than one thousand years after the events of the original game. A veritable kick in the privates for SEO chasing folks everywhere, this year’s Lords of the Fallen has exactly the same name as the original. Though somewhat hilariously, it wasn’t always this way however, as Hexworks’ Soulslike sequel/reboot actually began life as ‘Lords of the Fallen 2’, then was renamed to ‘The Lords of the Fallen’ before finally becoming, rather confusingly, just ‘Lords of the Fallen’. Not confusing at all is it?

Lords Of The Fallen Gameplay

Being very much a Soulslike effort, it probably doesn’t come as any sort of great surprise that Lords of the Fallen is a punishing, third-person action RPG with an emphasis on super precise combat. Casting players as one of the last Dark Crusaders, it has you tearing across a broken world, destroying monsters, uncovering loot and vanquishing ultra-hard bosses. Or at least trying to.

Boasting a game world that is more than five times the size of the realm that players were treated to in its predecessor, this game showcases far more complex and sophisticated worlds that are all interconnected by a vast range of corridors, walkways and hidden passages.

Of course being a Soulsike, Lords of the Fallen also encompasses many of the typical design elements one would expect to see in such titles. Front and centre naturally, is the concept of regenerating enemies whenever you hit a save point, elsewhere and much like other Soulslike offerings from years past, there is a dynamic PvPvE element, where players can be summoned to take down challenging foes in co-op or can invade your game session and make things, well, very bad indeed.

Perhaps the biggest way that Lords of the Fallen separates itself from its peers is in how Hexworks effort deals with death. Rather than just having your hapless, vanquished form rise up from the ground to get battered all over again, the game has you fighting your way through a deathly realm, tangling with all manner of spectres and monsters as you seek to return to your body.

Lords Of The Fallen Classes 

There are currently no less than nine starting classes in Lords of the Fallen, with one additional class that is unlocked separately to bring that total to ten classes overall. From the melee focused Mournstead Infantry, to the arcane arsenal of the Pyric Cultist, you can catch each class below.

Where Can I Watch The Latest Trailer?

The latest trailer for Lords of the Fallen is available to watch right now and you can catch it above. Far from the slender pickings that we so often get with trailers these days, the latest trailer is actually a mammoth seventeen minute long beast of a video that showcases a long stretch of impressive and uninterrupted gameplay from CI Games latest effort. Given the sheer length of the trailer, it’s no surprise that much of the game’s design is on show. From the punishing combat with all manner of wonderfully grotesque enemies, to the exploration of grim, sprawling lands, this latest trailer arguably provides the best taste of things to come. 

Lords Of The Fallen PC System Requirements

One of the few games in 2023 to leverage Epic’s cutting edge Unreal Engine 5 to fill out a sprawling and opulent dark fantasy world filled with detailed environments and stellar character model work, it’s perhaps somewhat predictable that the PC specs are appropriately high as a result. Perhaps the most telling point of all from the system specifications is that the recommended rig is only for 1080p high quality settings. This means that somewhat inevitably, the PC specs at higher resolutions and quality settings will be much higher than even the currently quoted recommended specification.
