Lords of the Fallen – State of Unreal Technical Showcase Trailer

Originally positioned as Lords of the Fallen 2, then later overhauled into The Lords of the Fallen, CI Games’ sequel to their Dark Souls-inspired action-RPG Lords of the Fallen recently got rebranded once again, and is currently known simply as Lords of the Fallen. Because that’s not confusing at all.

With this latest sneaky name change out of the way, we can now focus more on the game’s new trailer premiered at this year’s GDC as part of Epic’s State of Unreal keynote. As such, the trailer focuses on all the different ways in which the game utilizes the Unreal Engine 5, and how that results in impressive character customization options, atmospheric lighting, and a vast interconnected world.

Some additional details:

Alongside our partners at Epic, Lords of the Fallen took to the stage at State of Unreal in San Francisco today with a behind-the-scenes look at how Unreal Engine 5 is bringing our dark fantasy action-RPG to life.

Catch-up with this all-new look at Lords of the Fallen below.

Seamlessly craft a Unique Persona

Fully customise your character’s appearance, sculpting the form of your face and body, before finessing the finer details. Combining multiple technologies, including 3D scans of real people, and Unreal Engine 5’s own character customisation tech, our extensive selection of armour sets are able to seamlessly adapt to whatever form your character takes.

Advanced Physics Simulation

To ensure as immersive an experience as possible, UE5’s Chaos Physics engine helps to facilitate advanced simulations for clothes, chains, hair, belts, and a whole lot more. This helps to substantially enhance the secondary motion in all our characters, making their movements look much more lifelike.

Lighting the Darkness

Lords of the Fallen takes full advantage of Unreal’s brand new Lumen GI. Our complex environments are lit in real time, and fine tuned to ensure that our nanite meshes bounce the light to provide our world with impressive levels of detail, with minimal impact on performance.

Travel between Two Worlds

The intricately crafted realms of the living and the dead, Axiom and Umbral, are seamlessly accessible within our world. Utilising a custom toolset, built especially for Lords of the Fallen, our artists and designers have built detailed environments that blend without blemish as your lantern reveals the Umbral horrors that lay beneath the light.
