CI Games and Deck 13 tried to appeal to Dark Souls fans with Lords of the Fallen, but it didn’t stick the landing. Now with Lords of the Fallen 2 on the horizon, CI Games is back to try and convince Souls fans that this one will hit the mark.
“Lords of the Fallen 2 is our largest project in terms of the whole of CI Games. The previous game was a full priced, full featured release and we’re approaching the next one with an even larger scope. The sequel will move the franchise to dark fantasy and will offer a revised and challenging combat system,” said CEO Marek Tymiński.
Lords of the Fallen 2 is being developed by Hexworks, with CI saying it “has a strong chance to not only make the franchise becoming more popular among Soulsborne/Souls-like communities and beyond, but establish it as a long-running franchise for CI.”
Lords of the Fallen was an okay game, but there are a lot more Souls-likes in the market, meaning fans of the genre can be much more discerning when it comes to picking a title to spend time with.
