Lords Of The Fallen Slated For Halloween Release

Square Enix announced this morning that Lords of the Fallen, a next-gen action/role-playing game from CI Games will hit retail on October 28th in North America and October 31st  in Europefor the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.  It seems fitting that a game about demon slaying would come out around Halloween.

In Lords of the Fallen, you take on the role of Harkyn, who has been dubbed as “the best of the worst of humanity”.  Harkyn is a convicted criminal, who has been given a chance for redemption.  Just as the rulers of the world get close to finding a way to banish all evil from humans, an army of the long-ago defeated god attacks the human realm. Suddenly released from prison, Harkyn and his mentor, Kaslo, set out on a mission to stop the war.

In his journey, Harkyn will forge strong alliances and face even stronger enemies. He will learn the true power of the Rhogar Lords — commanders of god’s army. He will even bring the battle to the Rhogar, travelling to the heart of the demonic dimension.

Will the god manage to enslave humans again? Is mankind really able to banish evil? Will Harkyn’s sins ever be forgiven?

Sounds pretty cool, right?  Only time will tell if this can live up to the hype.  For more on this title, check our own Kevin Dunsmore’s preview from E3.
