- Lords of the Fallen is one of the most hyped-up games that has managed to come out in 2023, belonging to the hellish Soulslike category of titles.
- A new developer studio going by the name of Hexworks has worked on the game under the publishing wing of CI Games.
- At the moment, the developers are trying to resolve some of the most persistent bugs and technical issues associated with the game, thereby disabling crossplay on a temporary basis.
Lords of the Fallen has been making waves across the internet for all that brings to the table, harnessing the Soulslike genre and introducing its own unique take on the baseline formula created by FromSoftware. Outside of its core fundamentals, the game — tracing its release to two days back — is currently riddled with performance and multiplayer issues, with crossplay functionality being one of them.
Following player feedback, we’re working with our partners at Redpoint & Epic to enhance crossplay functionality. Therefore, this feature has been temporarily disabled until it’s been further optimised.
Co-op & PvP multiplayer remain active within your chosen platform.

The official X handle of Lords of the Fallen has made a post, iterating that they’ve listened to the community and have, therefore, made an effort to increase the efficiency of crossplay in the game—a feature that allows you to play online with players on a different platform than you. While co-op and PvP are still active and will work for connections pertaining to your system, crossplay has been disabled for now.
It bears noticing here that players aren’t too happy with the current state of co-op anyway. Apart from consistent performance, connection, and other issues plaguing the title’s playability, Lords of the Fallen’s multiplayer isn’t entirely seamless. A couple of concerns that the community has raised include not being able to progress your story if you join a session and being unable to interact with NPCs as a guest.

In other news, the devs released patch v.1.1.191 for Lords of the Fallen across all platforms, bringing a host of new changes and improvements to the Soulslike. Addressing the matter in an official blog post, the devs said, “We’ve worked diligently to fix some of the issues that unfortunately have affected some of our players. Rest assured that our commitment to enabling as many people as possible to immerse themselves in our game world is what drives our passion.”
In case you missed it, it was confirmed by Lords of the Fallen officials that the game is devoid of the controversial Denuvo anti-tamper DRM software. Responding to a comment, it was claimed, “We are pleased to confirm that Lords of the Fallen does not, and will never feature Denuvo.” What the game has launched with, on the flip side, is DLSS3, FSR3, and ray tracing, so there’s that as well.
Lords of the Fallen was launched on October 13, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The game was first announced in August 2022 in an exhilarating fashion, but the idea for the title has been around since 2015, as reported by Eurogamer. Lords of the Fallen succeeds the 2014-released Lords of the Fallen, with the developer of the latter being Deck 13.
