A new 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.

Showcasing a medieval-style knight as they battle through a horde of ghouls and a three-headed dragon, the trailer draws many comparisons to games like Elden Ring.

Gameplay and plot

Lords of the Fallen sequel/reboot looks much darker than the original, with a tone similar to Dark Souls 3. The original game also played a lot like a Dark Souls game. However, Lords of the Fallen will be more like Elden Ring in terms of design, featuring an open world and much more freedom than the relatively linear original.

The devs released some fresh screenshots on Twitter revealing some more of the gameplay with a focus on the size of the world:
