We already know that The Witcher 3 is heading to PlayStation 4, but what you may not know is that the producer of the first two Witcher games, Tomasz Gop, has also been working on another action RPG for almost two years.
Lords of the Fallen is set to launch on PlayStation 4, PC and next-generation Xbox sometime next year and is said to be as challenging as Dark Souls. Speaking with Eurogamer, Gop said:
"It’s a challenging game, action RPG, which means a lot of advanced combat. When you walk through a location, and you have to fight 10 enemies, that takes around an hour.”
"When you fight in Mortal Kombat, when you fight in Tekken, that’s why it takes so long – Dark Souls is probably a strong reference as well. But we’ve done a lot of things differently. For example, we have a skill tree. I would call Borderlands here, because we’re gonna have something like action skills in the game, so classes, stuff like this.
When asked about developing for the PlayStation 4, Gop had some good things to say about Sony’s next-generation system, specifically the 8GB GGDR 5 that is packed into the machine,
"Way more richer detail on all of the assets," he said. "For example, I couldn’t even imagine making a tessellated game on the current generation of consoles. It might even be one of the biggest gaps. And on the next ones [consoles] it’s going to be standard, in my opinion. And you just can see more on the screen right now, because it’s gonna fit and the memory’s gonna be fast."
Developed by Deck 13 and published by City Interactive, Lords of the Fallen is set to launch sometime in 2014. Make sure to check out the full interview over at Eurogamer.
