Lords of the Fallen is due out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next week, but the developer has been handing out early copies of the game to both press and big-time YouTubers alike, AusGamers included. Today, CI Games has addressed recent concerns about the game, and to better explain their approach.
In what can only be described as a far more customer-drive approach to the criticism, developers CI Games and Deck13 came together in their recent YouTube video to not only address the complaints but also offer advice on just what sets Lords of the Fallen apart from others. Tomasz Gop of CI Games moved to address criticisms that characters move too slowly. "The first thing I wanted to talk about it movement speed," said Gop. "We don't believe the game is too slow or too fast for anybody because you can adjust quite easily the way that you move."
He goes on to explain how weapon and armour choice significantly changes the speed with which your chosen character can dodge and block attacks. Gop also reiterates that the game will take approximately 50 hours to complete, and that as with nearly all role-playing games characters change dramatically over that time.
The video is well worth a watch to those wanting answers to questions they feared may have gone unanswered until the game's release, but you can expect our review to hit the front page come next week.
