Lords of the Fallen to be a challenging next-gen RPG, "Dark Souls a strong reference"

OnlySP writes:

It seems the next generation of gaming is already looking forward to a solid RPG lineup. Along with The Witcher 3 and Dragon Age III, a title announced last year by the name of Lords of the Fallen is on its way, and it aims to be a challenging and ‘hardcore’ experience that fans of the grueling Dark Souls will take to. (Lords of the Fallen, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Yes! Console gaming is making a good turn around from the casual side.

why the disagrees?

Pretty sure thats whats gonna happen, only difference will be frostbite engine.

Or maybe they will just turn it into First Person Tactical RPG.

Its not a turn around thats just how the circle goes

step one create expensive console
step two sell it to the hardcore guys given that casual see it as too much money to invest
step three lower the manufacture costs
step four games for family and casual crowd.
step five gear up for next gen

always the same. Best time to be a console owner is the first 2 and half years.

But but..challenge in games will turn people away from buying it!

Seriously though, i'm all for challenge in games, as long as it's not cheap or luck based.

Oh my God!, “It’s a challenging game, action RPG, which means a lot of advanced combat… When you walk through a location, and you have to fight 10 enemies, that takes around an hour." This got me interested.

New console smell.

I hope this isn't the beginning of another videogame trend getting run into the ground like the FPS before it. Just because Dark Souls was challenging doesn't mean that all subsequent "challenging games" have to take the form of a Dark Souls type game. Sometimes the games industry suffers from a severe lack of imagination / gets a little to enthusiastic about cashing in on trends. More games with unique visions need to be encouraged.

That said the concept of God dying and falling from the sky (while pretty stupid- what, God was just up in space hovering around the earth?) is pretty cool, and that artwork is pretty sick.

oh fuck yes, i hope the image is representative of the game experience, because dark souls inspired game with more open environments sound like i'm going to have to stock up on gatorade cause i'm going to be jizzing non-stop

2014 is gonna be one hell of a year.

This is the rpg with the giant dead colossus or bionis llike God that divides the two kingdoms right? I remember seeing something about this a year ago. Sounds awesome. Hopefully it comes to consoles. I may never get around to building a pc at the rate I'm going. Too busy buying games for the half dozen consoles/handhelds I have.

The game you are referring to is Xenoblade Chronicles for the Wii. Outstanding game. This looks great too so far. I am excited to hear more.

Looking forward to this. This announcement followed by The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 announcements... if there's ever been a good reason for me to sit down and try and make a PC soon this is it.

There is some info in the interview and I found this a little surprising, but it could mean anything.

"I can't talk too much about the next-gen Xbox," he added, "but I don't think a lot of people [are] going to be surprised. I don't think it's going to be huge news what's inside, no - seriously."
