Lords of the Fallen - Preview @ Twinfinite
Twinfinite has a new preview of Lords of the Fallen from Pax Prime 2013. Nothing we haven't read before, but you're interested in the game give it a look.
The Witcher 1 and 2 veteran makes no claims about Lords of the Fallen being trailblazing. It uses a number of tried-and-true elements, and you will see influences from games like The Witcher, Darksiders, Warhammer 40K, and especially Dark Souls. The style is informed by those prior 3 games, and the gameplay is informed by Dark Souls. However, this sort of gameplay was never exclusive to those titles, and City Interactive seems to be giving the game a unique style of its own.
Some 8000 years ago, legend has it that people rose up in defiance of an angry God, and were able to defeat him (at least temporarily). Now the followers of this God are returning, and it’s your job to defeat them (and one would guess, eventually the God himself). Although Gop says that story is not necessarily the emphasis of the game, rather than playing as a faceless champion, you play as Harken, a defiant, tattooed warrior. You will also have access to dialogue options when talking to NPCs, adding a bit of depth and personalization to the plot.
