Lords of the Fallen Developer Making New Dystopian Sci-fi RPG with Focus Home


After successfully putting its spin on the Dark Souls formula with Lords of the Fallen, German studio Deck13 Interactive is teaming up with French publisher Focus Home Interactive to create a brand new “premium action RPG IP.”

This currently untitled RPG will take place in a “dystopian sci-fi future” and feature “innovative combat mechanics and an original character progression system based on modular upgrades gained through tight, visceral combat.”

Those are typical buzzwordy PR talking points, so yeah, there isn’t much to go on right now. And there’s a good reason for that, as the game, which is expected to be available at retail and via digital download on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, has only just passed pre-production, and won’t be available until 2017.

For now the teaser concept art pictured up top is the only taste we’re getting of what I’ll call ‘Nameless Dystopian Sci-fi RPG’ until an official title is announced. It shows a dude in an Elysium-style exoskeleton wielding a saw-edged sword in his right hand and what appears to be some type of claw or shielding device with a glowing red light in his left hand. There also appears to be a small computer display panel on his chest.
