Lords of the Fallen will officially be coming out in time for Halloween, on October 28. Brace yourselves, because this isn't a dungeon crawler for the faint of heart. Expect to die many, many times.
Set in an old monastery, Lords of the Fallen places players in the shoes of Harkyn, an anti-hero of sorts sent to investigate some evil goings-on at said monastery. While the character isn't customizable, how he's played is left up to you. Armor, weapons and a limited number of spells can be mixed and matched, equipped in a number of different ways to suit your play style.
Having the option to essentially create your own way to play is always nice, but in Lords of the Fallen, it's absolutely necessary to survival. One of the game's biggest draws is the absurdly high difficulty, which dictates that every enemy and encounter must be approached in a strategic manner. This isn't just a hack-and-slash, but a gauntlet of pain, frustration, and the satisfaction that comes with each hard-won victory.
Lords of the Fallen will come out for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 28 in the US, and October 31 in Europe.
