The lights are on
Today City Interactive announced a new third-person action/RPG
set in a fantasy world that pits man versus god.
Tomasz Gop is the executive producer of Lords of the Fallen,
and was the former senior producer of The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. Gameplay-wise,
the two IPs sound similar; CI describes Lords of the Fallen as a "hardcore
action-RPG featuring an advanced combat systems and robust class skill trees," where
players make decisions that "alter both the world and their character thus
dramatically impacting the storyline." The combat and story of The Witcher 2 were
both excellent, so we won't complain if Lords of the Fallen features
likeminded design elements.
Lords of the Fallen is set in a medieval fantasy world plagued
by a supernatural being called the Fallen God. The world's inhabitants are
divided into supporters and detractors of the Fallen God; the game's human
protagonist, Harkyn, falls into the latter category. On his Linked In profile, Gop highlights "fighting
against the formidable Lords and Generals that command [the Fallen God's]
demonic army" as a key feature.
Lords of the Fallen is being developed for next-gen consoles
and PC and is currently slated for a 2014 release. Apparently the game is
coming along nicely, as CI will be showing off a live gameplay demo of Lords of the
Fallen at next month's E3 press conference.
In the meantime, all we have to go on is the above concept art. Click on the image for a more detailed version, or head to page two for the full press release.
