This new Lords of the Fallen roadmap of free content is seriously impressive. The Hexworks take on the genre popularized by Dark Souls is seeing more fixes and improvements, but over the next two months it’s also getting new questlines and armor sets, the promised New Game Plus modifiers, new spells, quality-of-life features, and a whole lot more.
I was very much conflicted in my Lords of the Fallen review. It’s a soulslike with some genuinely incredible new ideas that were hamstrung by some poor core design choices. I really enjoyed the Lords of the Fallen reboot, and my review reflects that, but it missed the mark in a few key areas – namely enemy balance and level design.
What I couldn’t have predicted was the extensive, free, post-launch support from CI Games and Hexworks. The teams have been diligently listening to player feedback and fine-tuning the RPG game to such an extent that, by the time they’re done, I think my score will have increased. There are substantial performance improvements, enemy density changes, and even an incredible-sounding New Game Plus mode already planned.
Now there’s a full-on Lords of the Fallen roadmap planned out for the rest of 2023, and there’s so much coming to the game in the next two months that it’ll be an entirely different experience by the time Hexworks is done.
With ongoing weekly enhancements that re-balance the game making a series of smaller but welcome changes over time, there’s also some honest-to-goodness DLC-esque content being dropped on us for free too.
Lords of the Fallen roadmap
Loads of content is coming in this Lords of the Fallen roadmap, so I’ve broken down what you can expect to come to the game by the end of 2023, for free.
- Umbral Armor set and questline
- Rhogar Armor set and questline
- Radiant Armor set and questline
- New spells pack 1
- New spells pack 2
- New questline event
- Inventory expansion
- Stash inventory expansion
- New grievous strikes
- Split PvE and PvP balancing
- More secret boss weapon abilities
- Gamepad rebinding
- New Game Plus modifiers
If it wasn’t already obvious, this number of changes is phenomenal, and could genuinely see Lords of the Fallen have a groundswell of reinvigorated players when all is said and done. Some of these additions could even constitute paid DLC in other games, so having it all come as post-launch support for free is nothing short of amazing.
