Lords of the Fallen: Combat

In Lords of the Fallen, you play a Lightbearer adventuring his way through the shadow realm of Mournstead. To defend yourself on your journey against the legions of Adyr or the depths of despair, you'll have a number of melee, magic and ranged abilities on your hand. You may assign up to four extra magical or ranged skills on your shortcuts/controller, which will leave you with a number of different combat choices. This will be especially important when the combat quickens later in the game.


Lords of the Fallen: Co-Op

You will be able to play online Co-Op uninterruptedly in this game! To do this, you'll need to tap into vestiges scattered throughout Mournstead. Your companions can then join you for the entirety of the quest.

Lords of the Fallen: Death

In the realm of Lords of the Fallen, a parallel world exists, called Umbral, which is meant for the dead. You can access this realm by employing the Umbral Lamp or, well, by biting the dust. By going to the other side, you'll gain the ability to use both realms for your advantage. Just be cautious, since spending too much time with the dead can cause your mind to be corrupted by invading malicious forces.
