Lords of the Fallen isn't meant to be a walk in the park for gamers used to bumming their way through games. The newest trailer, simply titled "Challenge," drives that point home. Meet the Champion Lord. Not a very creative name, but it gets the point across.
The Champion Lord is apparently encountered in an arena setting, as seen in the video. He's large and well-armed, with little patience for Harkyn. Heck, Champ tries to kill the guy as soon as he steps into the arena. The first attempt seems more to show what he can do, while subsequent attempts showcase the different classes and fighting styles Harkyn can adapt to.
Whether you like magic, agility, or being an immovable wall, Lords of the Fallen will accommodate. Every fight can be approached differently, but you'll always need to play smart. Keep an eye out for the RPG later this year, on PC and current-gen consoles Xbox One and PS4.
