Babylon’s Fall now has a release date courtesy of The Game Awards. A new trailer revealed during pre-show events puts the launch date at March 3, 2022. Developed by PlatinumGames and Square Enix, Babylon’s Fall is an online action RPG that uses a hack-and-slash style gameplay with online multiplayer up to four people.
In Babylon’s Fall, 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.
The game will release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam. Catch the release date announcement trailer below.
