- Lords of the Fallen is one of the freshest releases of 2023 at the time of writing, embracing the hellish Soulslike genre that FromSoftware pioneered.
- The game came out earlier this month but has already managed to sell more than 1 million copies across the world, as announced by the developers.
- In recent times, the devs have also released a new patch that makes due changes to the title’s NG+ mode and adjusts enemy density, making the experience more enjoyable for all.
Lords of the Fallen has taken me aback with its clever realm-switching mechanic, and as per a recent tweet on X (formerly Twitter), it appears that it’s just not me who the game has enchanted. Hexworks’ — the developer — debut project has evidently sold over a million copies worldwide in just about 10 days following its release, and this is no small feat to sleep over.

To compare the action RPG with one of its closest rivals that came out on September 19, it took Lies of P almost one month to generate this many sales, though it’s also available on Xbox Game Pass, so it’s safe to say that Lords of the Fallen is off to a better start. It bears noticing that both games have been received well across the spectrum on all the platforms they’re accessible on.
CI Games, the publisher of the title, sheds light on future games and says that Lords of the Fallen is just the beginning and that the company has more projects in the brewer. Commenting on the Soulslike reaching the prominent sales milestone, CI Games’ CEO Marek Tyminski said that the results so far have been humbling for both the publisher and the developer.
Lords of the Fallen is the most important and ambitious game we’ve developed in our 20-year history, and the first in our new planned AAA pipeline of games in the years ahead. To see this fresh and innovative take on the action-RPG achieve one million sales in just 10 days has been humbling for everybody at Hexworks and CI Games.”
Joining in the celebration, Hexworks head Saul Gascon also offered his two cents on the situation at hand, iterating that the studio remains thankful to the fans for their support.
Thank you to all the Lampbearers out there who have embarked on their journeys across Mournstead, fearlessly traversing the lands of the living and the dead. We’re incredibly grateful to the passionate Lords of the Fallen community for their invaluable feedback and ongoing support. It’s their unwavering dedication that has made this success possible, and we couldn’t be prouder to share it with them.”
In other news, Lords of the Fallen has been treated to a new patch in recent times, namely v1.1.224. The update boasts a resolution for one of the most harshly criticized parts of the title’s gameplay. It adds the NG+ mode that players have been asking for and also makes it so, that the vestiges (resting points) are more generously scattered throughout Mournstead—the in-game world.
