Lords of the Fallen has a story trailer and it's bonkers

Lords of the Fallen will finally arrive on console and PC this October after spending many years in development hell.

Lords of the Fallen is the successor to the 2014 game of the same name.

Lords of the Fallen is one of the titles gamers anticipate the most this year. Last month, the game's publisher, CI Games, released an extended gameplay trailer that had gamers buzzing with excitement. The studio has now followed that with a story trailer at the ongoing Gamescom convention in Germany.

The two-and-a-half-minute trailer opens with a foreboding scene that shows a man walking through a swamp. We get the vibe he is hiding from something: his breathing is heavy and we can hear growls in the distance. We are correct, as only a few heartbeats later, he comes face to face with a monstrous being that impales him with an extraordinarily long claw and then slices off his head.

Over the next few minutes, we hear the demon God Adyr talk about the motivation behind his actions as we're treated to jaw-dropping fight scenes that quicken our anticipation of its release. Like the extended gameplay trailer, Lords of the Fallen's story trailer is a joy to watch.

If CI Games delivers on it, then our anticipation will not be in vain. But then, the question is can they?

Lords of the Fallen's description gives a better idea of what to expect from the title:

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. As one of the fabled Dark Crusaders, journey through both the realms of the living and the dead in this expansive RPG experience, featuring colossal boss battles, fast challenging combat, thrilling character encounters, and deep, immersive storytelling.

Lords of the Fallen's story trailer has heightened anticipation for the game.

Lords of the Fallen is the successor to the 2014 video game of the same name and its events take place a thousand years after the first title. It's one of the upcoming games with a trailer release at Gamescom. Another is Crimson Desert, an action-adventure title by Black Desert's developer Pearl Abyss. You can read all about that here.

Lords of the Fallen will debut on October 13. The game will be available on the PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. You can pre-order it on Steam and get some bonus items. The Standard Edition goes for $59.99 while the Deluxe Edition goes for $69.99.
