Lords of the Fallen will bring its dark fantasy setting and action-RPG gameplay to North American shores on October 28th, confirms text featured in the game’s latest press release. European gamers, on the other hand, will have to wait an extra three days, before starting their quests on October 31.
Developed by CI Games, Lords of the Fallen is the story of Harkyn, a former criminal who is thrust into battle against attacking gods before being able to receive a pardon of sorts. It’s a narrative that focuses on conflict and alliance-building, in addition to redemption.
Read on for a full plot synopsis from the game’s latest presser:
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.
Will the god manage to enslave humans again? Is mankind really able to banish evil? Will Harkyn’s sins ever be forgiven?
Although it’s been given region-specific pricing in Europe, with the PS4/Xbox One versions going for £50 and the PC version going for £30, Lords of the Fallen has yet to be given dollar-based pricing. Stay tuned for more information on that front as it develops.
