Xbox One/PS4/PC game Lords of the Fallen gets a new trailer

Check out this new trailer for Namco's upcoming role-playing game.

by

Namco Bandai today released a new trailer for its upcoming role-playing game Lords of the Fallen, coming this fall to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The "Challenge" trailer shows off the Champion Lord taking on a hulking, armored beast. You can probably guess how it ends…"Deal the pain. Never stop," Namco says.

Lords of the Fallen is a third-person action role-playing game from Deck13 and CI Games. It may bear a resemblance to the Dark Souls series, but its developers think it stands apart. Check out our full preview for more.

Souls rip-off? Maybe, but if it plays as well as the Souls games, has a different story than the Souls games, and sounds as good as or better than the Souls games, but looks as good as this, then I am absolutely all for this game.


The Souls games set an incredible precedent, and I have no problem with a "knock off" if the game is as good as or better than those games. Heck, I might even not care if it wasn't quite as good as the Souls games as long as it played well enough.

Okay the game looks good and I'm sorry to say this but the blood effects are absolutely atrocious.

Rip off, do not rip off. No matter what people talk. I like the latter material. I just think that the game is worth attention, and that's it.

This game has potential to be one of the best RPG game on this year. Very nice trailer. Boss-> fight ->death-> stand up-> finish him xD For me LotF isn't a next-gen DS. I think it is totally different game: another story, another character, combat style (more tactical). We will see when CI Games finished this game.

Being that Dark Souls didn't come to next gen... I don't really care if this is a 'rip-off', I'm looking forward to it. From what I've seen though, I think there's enough differentiation from the Soul's games. It looks a little more arcadey/hack-slash.

So next gen is just going to be ripoffs of last gen games, only a lil prettier. No huge technical leaps, only prettier, whoopee.

Whats bad about looking like the awesome series that is demon/dark souls ( only get it if you hated them ) ? To me , it just mean not having to wait 2-3 + year for another soul game on next gen .

This trailer makes the game look annoying. Working as intended?

roll out of the way of attacks and strike. rinse and repeat.


Gee Golly, where have I seen this before?

I get that the developers are trying not to compare it too much to Dark Souls, but even the point the trailer seems to be trying to hammer home is awfully Souls-like.  That said, it looks rather nice.

Looks surprisingly a lot like Dark Souls. But hey, if DS has created a presedent of challenging, rewarding, beautiful games that gives unique experiences to players…well, in that case, I can't complain!

When can we get a good Dark souls-like sword fighting game without monsters and magic, and set in actual human history.

The trailer was like that scene in Monty Python and The Holy Grail where the guy keeps running toward the gate over and over and over again. :D

Sorry this game looks lame...not really into the whole Darksiders look or the Demon's/Dark Souls elitist difficulty and this game looks just as elitist as Dark Souls....

NO, I'm not a fan of die, die, die, die over and over again until you get it right type games.....

Still waiting to see what makes this title a next gen, cause graphically, it still looks like a high rez last gen to me.

Meh. Still using older XB1 SDK I see. Are there any other classes besides Warrior/Knight? Not overly impressed with this.

It looks like a Souls game with a art style similar to Darksiders or Kingdoms of Amalur. Not sure whether that is good or bad. Personally, I might just stick with Dark Souls and Dark Souls II since I don't plan on getting a next gen console or a swanky PC in the near future.

Looks like a cheap attempt to get into some of the Dark/Demon's Soul's pie in my opinion, also judging by the player movement looks kind of finicky and annoying

I'm actually suprised it's taken this long for copy cats to come out for Demon's and Dark Souls.  Every victory is born from defeat is so much of a Souls game mantra that they might have gotten away with patenting it if they tried.  We'll see though because if it's good and then it causes From Software to come out with guns blazing in the face of some competition now could be a good thing for us gamers.   >: )

Is this a late April Fools joke guys? tell me it is! please tell me it's a damn joke!

What I see is a flatout - shameless - Dark/Demon Souls Knock OFF! and a cheap one too....

Some of the animations like handle pulling and walking looks the same as well.

WHAT THE HELL? Am I suppose to be excited or pissed?

Btw.. how is that a role-playing game? I hate this when every game with swords, monsters and magic is called RPG nowdays. For crying out loud its a Fantasy-Action.

Ahhh wtf guys? They are actually using the pillar of the Souls series to market their game. Man o man.

a clone of the souls game published by Bandai Namco themselfs, oh the irony levels are over 9000

this looks like dark souls with better graphics.

They seem to be going for a very ''Dark Souls'' vibe, which makes sense, as Namco also (helped) make that game too.

Combat still looks pretty slow, so it gives you plenty of time to react.

I wonder what it will look like after the graphical downgrade a month before release?

Ew... making it hard sounds fine.  Making me go through that gate over and over and over before starting the battle does NOT sound fine.  Give me my save-anywhere!

More like Infinity Blade, but doesn't look as good as that even

@balrogbane  Hey! I was on the GameFAQs Dark Souls 2 boards and they mentioned a game called Mount and Blade. I think it's on Steam. I can't say if that's exactly what you're looking for, but maybe that might appeal to you.

I used to be like you. I thought Dark Souls was some hipster bullshit like those insanely hard platform games. Then I actually played it and found it to be a real fun game.

@MJ12-Conspiracy  Unless you've tried it you really can't tell if you're into it or not. We Dark Souls players like to talk up the difficulty but really its just like any game, once you get a hang of the mechanics things become a whole lot simpler. The difficult label put me off at first but once you defeat your first boss and get that rush of satisfaction you might find that the challenge is something you do enjoy, plus with dark souls at least there is no real right or wrong way to do things, pretty much every weapon in the game is viable. I've even seen the game beaten using a bog standard dagger, its far more about learning the mechanics than it is about repeated deaths.

Maybe the difference in art style would actually be a good thing since the Soul's games are more medieval themed while Lords of the Fallen appears to have more of a fantasy theme.

@Earl-of-Death  True and thank you. Exactly what I was going to say except for the part about not getting next gen as I have all three already. Now I don't have to type out a comment...

@GunEye  Jeez, calm down guy. There are barely any games that aren't knock offs of something else. If this game turns out to be good, then what's the problem?

@raiden_gaidenI don't agree with you. Any game is not a copy of another previous game. I think all games has something unique, something distinctive for this one titles. At the present day we can't say in what state these games are similar to each other (if at all there are similarities) I would wait for the premiere.

@Holy-Rapture  You are comparing a mobile game to a next-gen and PC game? How stupid are you?

@VooDooPC  I love your Soulblighter profile pic dude! I wish they'd reboot the Myth series, talking about finding satisfaction in victory after defeat...
