Tomasz Gop, executive producer of Lords of the Fallen, has confirmed in a Facebook post that conceptual work has begun for the sequel.
Eurogamer has since confirmed the news, who told them: “We’re now working on vision and concepts for Lords 2,” but went on to say that he wasn’t ready to discuss further details.
Lords of the Fallen was released in October and found itself heavily compared to games like Dark Souls and Darksiders. In the game, players take on the role of Harkyn, a convicted criminal whose sins are visible on his face, taking the form of runes. When an army of gods from eras ago attacks the human realm, Harkyn is released from prison and given a chance to atone for his sins. Players can form alliances with progression and eventually travel to the heart of the demonic realm, in an effort to achieve forgiveness.
Brian reviewed Lords of the Fallen and gave it 6/10, stating that: “Hardened Dark Souls fans may turn their heads up and sneer at the mere attempt made by Deck13 and CI Games to make an alternative to their game of choice, but Lords of the Fallen isn’t so much a clone as it is Dark Souls-lite, seeking to lower the barrier to entry for new players so that they can experience the genre.”
He went on to say that he hopes that “if the game gets a sequel, CI Games will be able to give the series more of its own personality, instead of ruthlessly cribbing from others.” Well, Brian, it seems that you may get to see if your wish will come true after all.
