Lords Of The Fallen 2 drops new devs Defiant Studios

Despite the first game being a bit rubbish, publisher City Interactive Games are insistent on making Lords Of The Fallen 2 a thing. They've also booted recently-hired developers Defiant Studios from it just one year into production. As reported (and translated from Polish) by Eurogamer, the publisher announced via a press release that their partnership was being terminated over "inadequate execution by Defiant [of] a…

Lords Of The Fallen 2 finds a developer

Three years after City Interactive first muttered about a sequel to Lords Of The Fallen, 2014's Souls-tinged action-RPG, they're finally going ahead with it. Today they announced they've drafted Defiant Studios, a new studio co-founded by the director of Just Cause 3, to make Lords Of The Fallen 2. Lords creators Deck13 parted ways with CI after the first game, see, going on to continue…

Feature: "Dark Souls Shortcuts: The Game"

The Surge review

Oh, I see. Just as I’ve written an article complaining that no game has learned from Dark Souls’ level design, The Surge [official site] comes out, a Soulsy sci-fi action game which is, on the face of it, about a cataclysmic accident in a robot factory, but which is actually about opening that door over there and finding out you’re back in your favourite corridor.…

Feature: A cold, dark and gentle place

In their haste to make “soulslikes”, devs have forgotten what makes Dark Souls unique – its level design

I finally completed Dark Souls III [official site] last week, a world that I have been dipping in and out of between bouts of listlessness since its release in April last year. It didn’t grip me like the first revered Dark Souls, but it still made me sad to know it was all over. Where could I go now for my Souls fix? The answer,…

Lords of the Fallen review

Lords of the Fallen is the first of what will surely be many clones of the Souls games – which is great! I adore the Souls series and think the action-RPG genre could learn a tonne from them. Lords of the Fallen, unfortunately, is not the brightest child in the class, and more to the point the PC version is currently in a right old…

Feature: In this WORLD even CAPITAL LETTERS go ROGUE

The PREVIEW we WROTE about LORDS of the FALLEN

I'm not usually one to judge a book by its cover, so to speak, but the capitalisation of LORDS of the FALLEN just has me tickled. It suggests we should shout the first word but then drop to a whisper and, when listeners are lulled into a false sense of security, scream the last syllables like a BANSHEE. If you're thinking 'only an angry nutter…

Boo! Lords of the Fallen Coming On Halloween

I like Halloween. I like the spooky music, the spooky movies, the spooky costumes, the spooky canapés, the spooky cocktails, the spooky video games--all the spooky things. Not to mention the cheap fake blood. The first video game to draw a circle around October 31 with a red pen this year (or is it blood? is it your blood?) is Lords of the Fallen, declaring…

Totally Not Dark Souls: Lords Of The Fallen Touts Difficulty

I can't imagine it's easy being a videogame door. One day your kind is totally invincible - your unassuming lacquered flesh the only thing capable of withstanding a fully buffed out hero's galaxy lance machine punch gun - and the next the merest of kicks explodes you into splinters. That's why I really feel for the door in the trailer for former Witcher 2 man…

Lords Of The Fallen Is Dark Souls Meets Borderlands…

There is scant information about there about Lords Of The Fallen, even though it was first announced (as Project RPG) a year ago. The game from The Deck 13, headed by former CD Projekt Red dev Tomasz Gop, doesn't have a website, nor even an entry in secret industry tome Gamespress. Yet the game that people seem to be pitching as a rival to The…
