I hadn’t heard of Lords of the Fallen before now (which indicates that I don’t read anything Peter writes) but I’ll be paying attention to it in future. After all, it’s not every day you hear about a new action-RPG with development led by Tomasz Gop, the senior producer of The Witcher 2.
Judging by this trailer and the accompanying press release, Lords of the Fallen is a game by City Interactive and Deck 13 Interactive in which you take the role of Harkyn, an angry man with a beard, on his quest to take on the Fallen God. This is a world in which the gods have failed, and the populace is divided between those who serve the Fallen God and those who resist him. As with The Witcher series, you’ll be making decisions that impact both your gameplay and your character.
I think that what this means is “be an angry beardy man and beat up lots of big monsters in an action-RPG setting.” Which is all anyone could ask for, really.
The cinematic debut trailer is below, and Lords of the Fallen itself is due out sometime in 2014.
