Hexworks and CI Games made an appearance during Gamescom 2022 and Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live presentation and they brought quite some fantasy-fiction adventure with them. During the show, we got our very first look at the reveal of The Lords of the Fallen. It’s a dark fantasy-fiction adventure which was will pit players against skeletons, multi-headed dragons, and so much more.
We got to see our first look at The Lords of the Fallen during Opening Night Live 2022 on August 23, 2022. What you may not know is that this is a reboot of a similarly-titled 2014 game. The original Lords of the Fallen was a somewhat liked action-RPG similar to the Dark Souls series, but never achieved the same level of acclaim. With the new game, players will engage in a revitalized version of Lords of the Fallen’s gothic dark fantasy world. You can see the first cinematic trailer for the game just below.

I really liked Lords Of The Fallen. There was a real sense of mass in all the actions (even just running and jumping), and had some great visuals. I liked the Gem Socketing, but the inventory was hateful.
I probably liked LotF better than The Surge, in fact.
