Lords of the Fallen unveils a "Technical Showcase" trailer

The new teaser shows off how Unreal Engine 5 brings the upcoming action RPG to life on current-gen consoles and the PC.

Unreal Engine 5 has made headlines this past week as Epic Games recently showcased some of its latest technologies. One game benefiting from these new improvements is Lords of the Fallen.

Lords of the Fallen is powered by the Unreal Engine 5.

CI Games and Hexworks recently released what it calls a Technical Showcase to highlight the power of Unreal Engine 5. This new trailer was unveiled at the Game Developers Conference where Epic also announced the upgrades for UE5. The nearly four-minute-long trailer shows off the upcoming action role-playing game’s extensive character creator, including 3D scans of real people using the game engine. In addition to this, Lords of the Fallen will feature dynamic clothing that adjusts to various body types.

Unreal Engine 5’s Lumen Global Illumination technology was used to create complex environments and better lighting in real-time. Hexworks also created a custom toolset using the game engine to make traveling between worlds in the game seamless.

The game features two vastly different worlds in Axiom and Umbral. The former is the world of the living while the latter is the land of the dead. It is not yet clear if players can traverse between the two worlds on the fly. However, Unreal Engine 5 gives the developers the tools to make their vision of the game a reality.

Lords of the Fallen features a fast and challenging combat system where players can use a huge number of uniquely brutal weapons. Gamers can also choose to utilize magic spells instead of weapons to take on foes.

Lords of the Fallen has an extensive character creation and nine starting classes.

The expansive character creation system also lets players choose one of the nine starting classes. The ARPG allows gamers to develop unique playstyles by upgrading stats, weapons, armor, and spells.

Lords of the Fallen will also feature a two-player online cooperative mode. There will also be some sort of incursion where players from other realms can invade your games similar to Elden Ring.

Lords of the Fallen is a sequel to the 2014 game of the same name. The original was developed by Deck13 and CI Games. Hexworks, a CI Games subsidiary studio, takes over the development of the sequel.

It does not yet have a release date yet, but Lords of the Fallen will be coming to the PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
