Totally Not Dark Souls: Lords Of The Fallen Touts Difficulty

First I will destroy this entire floor, and then - eventually - I will get around to harming YOUUUUUUUU.

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 Tomasz Gop’s Lords of the Fallen, which gets kicked, split, splattered, bashed, mashed, boiled, and stuck in a stew over and over and over forever. The very overtly Dark-Souls-influenced dungeon crawl is Hard apparently, so you’ll be busting into its boss rooms repeatedly in your quest to bonk the hulking monstro-jerks until they fall down just right. Watch below.

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 Witcher 3 has managed to produce some screenshots despite it all.

Witcher Too: Former CDP Lead’s New RPG At Deck 13

When I awoke this morning, I could feel a certain electricity in the air. The animals near my home tensed and mewed restlessly, and my left shoulder blade pulsated with a dull ache. I knew these signs. This day, I realized, would be very, very Witchy. Predictably, CD Projekt trotted out Geralt in all his finest freebies, and I figured – short of, perhaps, a minor fluctuation in Wichita, Kansas – that was it for the day. Then I came across this Digital Spy bit detailing a new project from former CD Projekt senior producer Tomasz Gop called “Project RPG.” Today, it turned out, would also be very Project-y. What’s it about? Check out this:

“The world is set 1,000 years after the death of a God, whose corpse is a mountain that splits the world into two sides, each with their own philosophy.”

Ooh! More below.

Tomasz Gop Explains The Witcher 2

You know, at least three quarters of RPS is really looking forward to The Witcher 2. Why? Because it’ll be even witcher. Ha! Sorry. Even my cats groaned at that. (But I’m not going to stop asking if Mafia 2 is even mafia that the original.) Anyway, The Witcher 2 will be an enormous lump of steaming hot fantasy RPG, crafted by a studio that has the money and the expertise to make it look good and play intricately. It’s worth being excited about because, while it’s not alone in the RPG club, it does seem to be leaning quietly on the bar with an air of eyebrow-raising confidence. It’s been some places, learned some things, got some stories to tell… and CD Projekt know it. Tomasz Gop is one of the CD Projektian gentleman of at the controls of the development machine: a senior producer, no less. He decided it might be okay to tell us a little bit about his game. I spoke to him via the magic of Skype. You may read on for certain bewitchment.
