Lords of the Fallen – New Story Trailer Confirmed for Gamescom Opening Night Live

The trailer sheds light on “that which binds this cruel world” before the game’s release on October 13th for consoles and PC.

Hexworks’ Lords of the Fallen is out in October, but that doesn’t mean it’s slowing down with the details. Following its showcase of the first 13 minutes of the Souls-like action RPG, it’s confirmed a new story trailer for Gamescom Opening Night Live. It will seemingly shed light on “that which binds this cruel world.”

A look at the big bad, perhaps? Based on what we know about the story, players must stop the resurrection of Adyr, the demon God, as part of the Dark Crusaders. While you traverse the world of Axiom, there’s also Umbral, the Land of the Dead. Using the Umbral Lamp, it’s possible to cross certain obstacles.

When you die, you rise again in Umbral and have a limited time to escape before the dead come clawing. Fail, and it’s back to the last checkpoint. The Umbral Lantern has other uses, like ripping an enemy’s soul out and damaging it to hurt their body. Head here for more details.

Lords of the Fallen launches on October 13th for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Gamescom Opening Night Live is scheduled for August 22nd at 11 AM PT, with titles like Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Mortal Kombat 1 and more confirmed to appear.
