CI Games' Lords of the Fallen is getting a Complete Edition. The game was a sleeper hit when it released in 2014 and the Complete Edition comes with all the previously released DLC jammed into one big bundle starting October 27th.
All Games Beta posted up the press release for the news and the trailer that came along with it, which you can check out below.
The Lords of the Fallen: Complete Edition comes with the full base game, along with the Demonic Weapon pack, which contains three brand new weapons for protagonist Harkyn to utilize in his fight against the evil ones. The three weapons includes a magic-stealing hammer, a set of twin daggers and a sword.
There's also the Lion Heart pack, which comes with a new set of armor and a matching hammer and shield. The Monk Decipher content is a new location for Harkyn to journey through, containing new secrets and treasures. There are also resource cards in each of the packs to help in Harkyn's journeys.
Additionally, the Ancient Labyrinth DLC will also be included in the Complete Edition of Lords of the Fallen, giving gamers extra content and maps to scour through in the fight against the ancient evil seeking to overtake the land.
Surprisingly the Complete Edition of Lords of the Fallen will only carry a $29.99 price tag. Unlike some GOTY Editions that release for $59.99, CI Games decided to scale back on the cost and only offer it up for half the usual price of these Complete/GOTY Editions.
As for the game itself... Lords of the Fallen is probably going to go down in history as one of the most underrated hack-and-slash, action-RPGs of the eighth generation. The reason for that is because the game stands in the shadow of Dark Souls, with many viewing it as a Dark Souls clone. However, the game has many of its own unique mechanics and nuances that help it stand apart from Bandai Namco and From Software's third-person hack-and-slash series.
One of the things that really drew me in with Lords of the Fallen is how weight and weapon balance play a huge role in the combat. The more a player carries the slower they move. This means that the more armor you wear to tank hits will also limit your mobility and how you're able to dodge and parry. Of course, wearing little or next to nothing will grant you a lot of agility and speed during combat, but it comes at the risk of taking damage very quickly.
The game has a neat micromanagement element to it that gives players a lot of different combat options to play around with, including how magic and spells are equipped, and how two-handed weapons, dual-wielded weapons and sword and board weapons are utilized in combat.
You'll be able to buy the Complete Edition of Lords of the Fallen for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One from retail stores and digitally for PC for $29.99 starting October 27th.
