Babylon's Fall Confirmed To Be A Cooperative Action-RPG For PS5, PS4, PC
Platinum Games showed off Babylon's Fall during the Square Enix E3 2021 showcase.
Platinum Games brought its upcoming action game Babylon's Fall to E3 2021 for the Square Enix showcase, giving us a new look at its stylish action. The PlayStation and PC game was announced a few years back, but this was one of our first looks at the game in extended detail--and now we know it's a cooperative game.
Babylon's Fall sports a unique art style, somewhat resembling a watercolor painting. As with other Platinum Games titles, it uses high-flying abilities during combat, but it does also appear to be a little bit weightier than something like Bayonetta or even Nier: Automata. Weapons like swords, bows, and lances make an appearance, and there are also magical abilities. You'll also be able to use "battle actions" to eventually trigger more powerful attacks in combat, keeping in the spirit of high fantasy while avoiding "cartoonish" elements.
One surprising reveal during E3 2021 is that Nier: Automata producer Yosuke Saito is working on the game. It's unclear if he's still involved with the Nier series. One other surprising tidbit is that the game cannot be played offline. Yes, Platinum Games has made a live service title. There will be several beta tests leading up to its launch.
Babylon's Fall will release for PS4, PS5, and PC. It's one of several projects Platinum Games has in the works, with the Nintendo Switch exclusive Bayonetta 3 also in development.
