As the gaming world prepares for the release of the next Souls-like game, Lords of the Fallen, it’s important to take a step back and analyze what made the original so successful.

Souls-like games provide a unique challenge that is not often found in other genres and titles. For many gamers, the appeal lies in the sense of accomplished that comes with finally defeating a difficult boss or enemy. It’s a true test of skill, and one that can be addicting.

However, what sets Lords of the Fallen apart is its focus on story. While the original Souls games were light on narrative, Lords of the Fallen looks to provide a more fleshed out experience. From the trailers and marketing materials released so far, it’s clear that the developers want players to feel as if they are uncovering the game’s secrets, rather than simply overcoming obstacles.

This is an interesting shift, and one that could help the game stand out in a crowded genre. Only time will tell if it will be able to truly capture the magic of the Souls games, but I for one am excited to see what Lords of the Fallen has to offer.
