Lords of the Fallen “might be infinite”, main quest takes 15 hours

Thursday, 2nd January 2014 01:32 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Lords of the Fallen aims to offer “infinite” gameplay, and even those who just want to sprint through the main storyline can expect a hefty dose of gameplay.

Speaking to OnlySP, producer Tomasz Gop made a guess at the game’s length.

“If we’re talking about strictly walking through the main quest and skipping everything else – what a loss – then something along the lines of 15 hours might give you an idea,” he said.

But, he added, the RPG is aimed at “achievers and completionists”, with loads of additional content for those who care to explore.

“Technically, with New Game +, exploration, lots of secrets and optional loot, [gameplay length] might be infinite,” he said.

Gop was producer of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, so we’re keen to see what he’s been cooking up. Despite our intense interest we’ve seen very little of Lords of the Fallen, although a new trailer did come out of gamescom. It’s expected on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox one in northern autumn.

Thanks, Dark.

    Just asking, but… is anyone else getting a bit fed up of this sort of thing? I’m getting to the point where fantasy is just driving me to sci-fi only.

    I know, in the ’80s, there was no fantasy. There was only sci-fi, and it was this big mish-mash of stuff. These days, fantasy has been locked down into being this specific thing that’s iconically presented with Swords, Sorcery, and Little Germany/England.

    Perhaps that’s why I went completely bonkers over Morrowind and Mask of the Betrayer, because my goodness it’s not Little Germany/England.

    I miss the mash-ups of all sorts of stuff when fantasy meant anything you could imagine, really. And… I don’t know. I want to see more of the punks, like teslapunk and atompunk. I want it to be less mundane, I’m at that point in my life where I’m a little fed up of games of certain genres believing that I’d be too thick and unimaginative to comprehend or relate to any fantasy setting that doesn’t have the Triforce of Fantasy (Swords, Sorcery, and Little Germany/England).

    So, yeah.

    It’s disappointing to see someone who should be more creative just trotting out the same old stuff all the time, it’s gotten to the point where I can’t see it as anything other than schlock. We make it because they buy it, not because we want to.

    Skyrim drove home to me just how utterly fed up I was with the Triforce of Fantasy, and for every minute I played that (even with fantastic mods like Inigo), I longed to be playing New Vegas instead.

    So I uninstalled Skyrim and I’m back to New Vegas.

    I don’t know.

    You’d think I probably hate fantasy, but a decade or more ago, I loved it. I just really don’t like what it’s become, that it all has to be locked into that lame, uncreative Triforce, that it can’t be anything else.

    And they never even push it, either. We have magic out the wazoo, so much so that we could probably create some kind of ethereal gate through which we could send highly trained teams of explorers. But no, let’s all fight dragons in Little Germany/England instead.

    I hate feeling this jaded, but I neeeeeeed variety.

    Am I alone in that?

    TheWulf, can you stop posting huge articles about how you dont like classic fantasy in every fucking comment.

    “I know, in the ’80s, there was no fantasy. There was only sci-fi, and it was this big mish-mash of stuff. These days, fantasy has been locked down into being this specific thing that’s iconically presented with Swords, Sorcery, and Little Germany/England.”

    You don’t even make sense, implying Tolkien didn’t inspire all the old classic fantasy titles (which there are a fucking ton of) out there. It wasn’t “Sci-fi”. Some retard libraries or other places called it that because they didn’t know about the term “fantasy”.

    Fantasy still means anything you can imagine and unlike you I’m sad there’s not alot of classic fantasy. The majority to me seems like what you want “I miss the mash-ups of all sorts of stuff when fantasy meant anything you could imagine”.

    What you described is the majority of sci-fi/fantasy games today. The classic fantasy titles are few, only some big titles and maybe some smaller ones.

    Now PLEASE start a blog or stop posting all these stupid comments EVERYWHERE.

    EDIT: It’s pretty simple, you don’t like classic fantasy and that’s fine. But don’t say classic fantasy hasn’t always been like that. It has, your taste just changed to sci-fi.

    I am not sure if infinite gameplay is the way to go but it definitely is a way to go through and see if it works well or not.

    In the meantime, the game looks gorgeous.
