Hexworks has released an extended gameplay presentation for Lords of the Fallen, and as we have come to expect, it looks exquisite.

The presentation gave us another chance to see the harrowing environments we will be presented with on release. We will be able to explore Axiom, the realm of the living, and Umbral, the realm of the dead.

Each of these realms will have their own enemies, characters, treasures and the like. One example of an enemy in Umbral was a rather unusual head with arms and legs, but no body. This chap is known as a 'Mendacious Visage', and I certainly wouldn't want to meet him on a dark night (although, that is probably exactly what will happen whenever I play the game). There was also another enemy that reminded me of Silent Hill's Pyramid Head.

Players will be able to take a look into Umbral at any time, thanks to the rather handy Umbral Lamp. The demonstration of this looked flawless, as did the rest of the showcase, which you can watch below.

When we head into those inevitable confrontations with what the developer has called "the ravaging legions of Adyr" (Adyr being a demon God), there will be a range of methods for overcoming them. We will be able to use might and magic in our quest for victory, with the option to map up to four additional magic or ranged skills to the controller, to make things even slicker.

Of course, you don't have to go it alone, and there is the option to play Lords of the Fallen in multiplayer mode.

"The world of Lords of the Fallen can be braved together, uninterrupted for the entirety of your journey, each warrior resting the experience and items uncovered," the developer explained.
