More are shooting out of Square Enix’s E3 2021 livestream, as the company has revealed a brand new trailer for Babylon’s Fall, a live-service action RPG developed by the folks at PlatinumGames.
Featuring co-op combat and a unique art style, the game can be played in parties up to four and will feature a range of post launch game modes at no additional cost.
Players become a group of warriors known as the sentinels, bonded with special equipment called Gideon Coffins, and throw themselves into an odyssey to overcome the titanic Tower of Babylon, within which sleeps a great legacy. In addition to weapons wielded in both hands, characters can use the power of their Gideon Coffin to equip two more, allowing for combinations of up to four weapons at once. The capabilities of different equipment will also bring endless variation to the strategy that can be employed. The game’s visuals are achieved using a newly developed “brushwork style” to create a unique fantasy setting with a medieval oil painting aesthetic.
Square Enix has promised more details on Babylon’s Fall will be revealed throughout the year, and has also confirmed it will have a closed beta event, which you can register for via the game’s official website.
Check out the trailer, developer interview, and the keyart for the game down below:
