It seems to be like a scene straight out of Dark Souls; a battered knight lays hunched over as a towering blue armoured determine prepares to complete them off. Then the fallen knight sprouts magical tentacles from their again, tears off their opponent’s sword-arm with them and makes use of it to bisect them, which is a bit much less Dark Souls. Announced throughout Square Enix’s E3 showcase, Babylon’s Fall is the subsequent from Bayonetta & Nier: Automata studio Platinum Games and, whereas we haven’t seen any gameplay footage but, they reckon that it’ll be out on PC subsequent yr.
So, what nuggets of information can we draw from the trailer beneath? Well, they’re undoubtedly going for Souls-ish medieval darkish fantasy, set in a world the place humanity has been compelled underground by an indignant goddess after 450 years of conflict over a magical artefact often known as the Oversoul. Now humanity are going to climb again up and kick god’s arse, as if that wasn’t precisely the factor that bought them in bother within the first place.
The dramatic shot of 4 heroes (who look to suit the basic archetypes of wizard, fighter, rogue, and cleric ) standing in entrance of an enormous tower instantly makes me suppose that that is going to be a co-op sport, and perhaps even a dungeon crawl of some description. While I might be fallacious, I’ll hazard a guess that with Platinum on the helm – masters of the character motion style – this one goes to be extra motion than RPG, and that’s simply advantageous by me. With Devil May Cry 5 only recently introduced, too, I’m feeling positively pandered to.
Babylon’s Fall is coming to PC (through Steam) and PlayStation four in 2019. Given that that is one thing model new from Platinum (particularly noteworthy after Microsoft’s Scalebound fell through), I’m going to maintain a really shut eye on this one.
