- Lords of the Fallen is a 2023 Soulslike with a unique “Realm Shift” mechanic.
- The game has been consistently supported post-launch, and another patch is in the works.
- Ahead of the update’s release, the devs have released a blog post, detailing the patch notes.
In a new blog post on Steam, Lords of the Fallen developers Hexworks along with the publisher CI Games have released a new update on behalf of the game, thanking players for their continued support and pledging unwavering commitment to maintaining the Soulslike. The devs say that a new patch is in the works for Lords of the Fallen, and the issues currently persisting in-game are being ironed out.
We’re thrilled to confirm that a new patch is scheduled for release this Thursday on all platforms. It will be packed with improvements aimed at enhancing stability, performance, balancing, and more. We understand that some of you are still encountering crashes and experiencing occasional performance hiccups. Rest assured we are actively collaborating with our partners and resolving these issues as quickly as possible. In addition, we are fine-tuning balance in response to your feedback, and implementing numerous game improvements across the board.”
Additionally, Lords of the Fallen’s update schedule was moved to a weekly basis from daily patches in an attempt to sustain crossplay functionality for players. In case you missed it, cross-platform play was disabled from the side of the developers last month in order to refine it further. As of today, the feature is in full flight and allows players from different platforms to take on the horrors of Mournstead together.
The new patch, therefore, is expected to drop today and will revolve around stability, performance, and balance improvements. Hexworks also said in the post, “We will also provide more information soon on the features we teased just one week ago, which will create new, unique, and unforgettable moments during your journey.”
In other news, it came as a surprise when the word spread last week that Lords of the Fallen’s budget surpassed $66 million, making it one of the most expensive games ever made. However, it’s a relief for the devs that the game has sold 1 million copies to date, all under 10 days of work. In contrast, Lies of P—another prominent Soulslike and a competitor to the title—sold 1 million copies in a month.
Lords of the Fallen was released on the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC on October 13, 2023, with no cross-gen support for older consoles. eXputer rated the game 3.5/5, with Muhammad Haris calling it one of the better Soulslikes that we’ve seen in a while, save for a few design choices that hold it back from true greatness.
