Lords Of The Fallen Launching October on PS4 and Xbox One

CI Games' action-RPG coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC this October.

Action-RPG Lords Of The Fallen is launching on October 28 in North America across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, the publisher announced today. It'll be hitting the EU slightly later on October 31.

Developed by CI Games (formally known as City Interactive), Lords Of The Fallen is often compared to the likes of Dark Souls, with the two games sharing a similarly dark aesthetic and focus on melee combat. The game will be published by Bandai Namco in the US and Square Enix in the EU.

CI Games previously confirmed that the game will run at 1080p on PlayStation 4, but stated that it was "slightly tougher" to do the same on Xbox One.

For more on Lords Of The Fallen, and how it might be more than just a Dark Souls clone, check out GameSpot's latest preview.

I think not only you vad3r666 have this kind of problem. I must think a little more about this which game I must have on release date and which can wait to buy. In 100% I'm sure LotF and DA is game which I must have when they comes out. About another game I must think when I want buy it.

no just no! Just one more game, and no I do not buy even one! I wonder if it's worth ordered earlier, in the end, and so and so will not have time to play in each. However, this game is tempting me so much ......

October...A lot of awesome game will be released in this month. If I remember good on this game works not only CI Games but Deck 13 too and Tomasz Gop which was working The Witcher :D I think this game will be worth my atention. I'm very happy to know when Lords of the Fallen comes out.

I just heard about this game a little while before E3, and its release is in October. It will not be a polished game.

Was looking forward to this game until they decided to go stupidly difficult on the level of Dark Souls. So, I wont be buying it unless they have a wimp mode.

It's great that finally dared enter the date. So something I felt that it would be in October.;) Hehehe. Lots of games, at least it is lot to choose. One can buy right away, others may be later. Depending on what who has priorities.;) I bet on the LoF and DA. And the rest can come in a nice gift for Christmas.;)

Seems like it would make sense to release one good title in the summer when kids are out of school. I understand developers want to release in Q4 for the holidays, but October is now flooded with releases that will cannibalize the sales of each other.

Yet another game on the long list of games coming in October. 


Whyyy do they keep throwing every big game during October this year? Why not release some in Aug/Sept/Nov/Dec?


It doesn't even make sense sales wise, they are forcing the games to compete and just making the market size for potential sales smaller for doing it. 


It'd be like if the film industry released all the big Summer blockbusters in a single month, obviously some will get overshadowed and not make as much money because of that so they don't do it. 


Yet the gaming industry still doesn't seem to grasp this concept. 


So now we have:


Dragon Age: Inquisition

Aliens: Isolation

Driveclub

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Battlefield Hardline

Evolve

The Evil Within

Civilization: Beyond Earth

AC: Unity

Sunset Overdrive


and now this game. 


WAAAAAAAAAAAY too many games, I'd love to get most of them, but obviously can't. If they spread them out over a few months each game would get more sales most likely.

Finally Deck 13 and CI Games tells us when this game comes out. Is it a big surprise for me of course good surprise. Honestly I can't wait when they tell something more about release date but now I can't wait to this day.

This game is probably going to be overlooked by all the established brands/franchises coming out that month. I don't understand why developers and publishers find the need to cram all these games into the fall. Why not release some games during the summer?

It was very important to note that the info about the graphics were nonchalantly just tossed in there enough to bring about the graphics holy war and who has the best hardware.


And go!

Eh, the DS comparison turns me off a bit. Since its the last game of October big list of games, it'll also be the last to be tried.

You do realize this was revealed last year at E3? And has been in development for quite a while.

@Stiler its mainly because they want to release in Q4 for the holiday season, especially now in the recession when they have statistical data that shows people dont buy as many games in the summer. (people go on vacation, play outside etc)

But I agree theres way too many releases coming in October.

You also can add Forza Horizon 2 (sept 30 is pretty much october), Skylanders trap team, fifa 15, nba 2k15, Project Spark, Fantasia and Just Dance 15.

@Mindwipe77 very true, I love buying games around halloween. I'll probably play Evil Within on Halloween though.

@Darkhol0w

On my list so far in no specific order of preference:  Alien: Isolation, Dragon age Inquistion, Middle earth: Shadow of Mordor, Borderlands the pre -sequel, Battlefield Hardlines, Evil within, Lords of the Fallen and Assassins creed Unity.

@olddadgamer I fear that he might be one of the Lords who have Fallen and all because of the gaming companies' obsession with choosing the same date for their games. Dragon Age: Inquisition, Alien: Isolation, Shadow of Mordor and Project Spark all arrive on October 7th.

@sakaixx Oh so any game that remotely looks or feels like another game is a rip of? Well then every goddamned open-world action adventure game is a ripoff of GTA. Because f*** logic, right?
