A new The Lords of the Fallen game was announced at Gamescom 2022, here’s everything we know about the sequel/reboot so far.

The original Lords of the Fallen was a Souls-like game released in 2014. Players controlled Harkyn as he tried to stop demonic forces as they invaded the world. Now, a second game in the franchise has been announced and will also be titled, Lords of the Fallen. While styled as a reboot, the game is a sequel to the original in terms of story and will be set over one thousand years after the original game.

The series takes inspiration from FromSoftware’s games and plays a lot like Elden Ring, Dark Souls, and Demon’s Souls. Like the Souls series, the game features tactical combat, various class options, and nonlinear gameplay. Players also lose progress when they die, but have the chance to retrieve their lost experience.
