We've been waiting for a sequel to 2014's Lords of the Fallen since, well, 2014. Almost a decade later, however, it looks like the franchise is getting a reboot with the title The Lords of the Fallen.


Revealed on August 23rd this year, The Lords of the Fallen looks to please fans of Elder Scrolls and Elden Ring with its high fantasy setting, open world, and action RPG gameplay.

Described on Steam as "an all new, epic RPG adventure in a vast, interconnected world more than five times larger than the original game," it sounds like it will be worth the wait. But when will the game be released, and on what platforms? Keep reading, because we're going to share everything we know below.

When is The Lords of the Fallen release date?

According to Steam, the The Lords of the Fallen release date is a vague "2023" - so we can expect it sometime next year. As soon as we get a more precise date, we'll let you know here!

9 years is a long time to wait for a sequel, but it's nothing on the break between George RR Martin's books, so we'll consider ourselves lucky there.

Which consoles and platforms can play The Lords of the Fallen?

The Lords of the Fallen gameplay and story details

While we don't know much about the story and lore, we do know that it's being developed by Hexworks, a studio that forms part of CI Games (the publisher of the 2014 original). It looks like the lore and setting will continue from the first, but we can't say anything with certainty.

The official Steam page reads: "After an age of the cruellest tyranny, the demon God, Adyr, was finally defeated. But Gods… do not fall forever. Now, aeons later, Adyr’s resurrection draws nigh." Fans of the original should be excited! And you can take a look at the gameplay below.

Is there a Lords of the Fallen trailer?
