Earlier today Square Enix announced that CI Games’ next generation RPG/Action title will hit shelves on October 31st in Europe.
In Lords of the Fallen, you are Harkyn, the best of the worst of humanity. A convicted criminal, Harkyn is given a chance for redemption. But just as the rulers of the world get close to finding a way to banish all evil from humans, an army of the long-ago defeated god attacks the human realm. Released from prison, Harkyn and his mentor, Kaslo, set out on a mission to stop the war.
In his journey, Harkyn will forge strong alliances and face even stronger enemies. He will learn the true power of the Rhogar Lords – commanders of god’s army. He will even bring the battle to the Rhogar, travelling to the heart of the demonic dimension.
Lords of the Fallen will be available for Xbox One priced at £49.99. More information can be found on their website; http://lordsofthefallen.com or via their Facebook page; https://facebook.com/lotfgame.
With less than a week beforeE3,Spider Studios have released a couple new screenshots of their big budget RPG before it’s official debut at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Spider Studios have recently gained a good following of RPG fans thanks to the release of Mars War Logs for PC (coming later in Q3 for Xbox Live Arcade), a smaller budget RPG which has taken fans and industry experts by surprise for its depth.
Bound by Flame lets us play a mercenary possessed by a flame demon in an ambitious Dark Fantasy universe. As a victim of this demonic influence, we will have to choose between the powers offered by this evil or to reject the demonic influence, developing heroic talents instead. Dangers, and enemies becoming more terrifying and fearsome in battle, will be temptations to acquire more power by giving up part of the hero’s soul to the demon. Progression of the demonic influence will be reflected by the transformation of the hero’s body.
As with every other RPG on the market Bound by Flame will include features like player customisation, skill tree progression, companions with a friendship/love/rivalry system, real-time battles and a bestiary which is described as being ‘rich and spectacular‘.
So far all we know is Bound by Flame is targeting a release towards the end of this year. More details will likely surface after the E3 debut next week.
