“A CHALLENGE IN GAMES CAN BE MEASURED WITH THE DISTANCE BETWEEN RANDOMNESS
AND SKILL. OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE A GAME THAT REWARDS PLAYERS FOR DOING WHAT IT
TAKES TO CROSS THAT GAP. A GAME WHERE LEARNING SKILLS AND ULTIMATELY MASTERING
THEM IS THE BASIS OF FUN AND ENTERTAINMENT.”
The new Action RPG, Lords of the Fallen, from German studio Deck13 is being released in 2014 Q3-Q4 on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4. A recent gameplay video was uploaded and one of the devs sat down with vg247.com to chat about the upcoming release.
Tomasz Gop, a former CD Projekt developer (which is good news), explained that the game takes place in a fantasy world where god himself has been imprisoned deep below the Earth; with only his arm sticking out of a vast mountain range, stuck there after one final attempt at escape. Without warning, his minions have sprung forth to escape.
The gameplay video shows combat and the meticulous thought needed to take down these “Lords” during boss battles.
If this game has a dev from the Witcher franchise working on it, things look promising. Watch out for more gameplay footage to come as Gop said the only way for the fans to know exactly what to expect when seeing the game on the shelf at stores is to provide gameplay footage and commentary. We say cheers to that!
