Greetings, Sentinels! Clem from the Babylon’s Fall Community Team. It’s been a while since we’ve shown the game, so I hope you enjoyed the new trailer we just unveiled at E3!
If you haven’t seen it yet, we’ve got you covered!
Released on PS5 and PS4, Babylon’s Fall is an online co-op action RPG set in a high fantasy world that lets you battle powerful enemies and bosses while exploring the mysterious Tower of Babylon. Create your character, defeat gigantic enemies, collect loot, and craft equipment to customize your own build and play style!
The good news: you can team up with friends and fight up to four Sentinels! The best news: you’ll do it in absolute style.
That’s right, Babylon’s Fall follows the steps of PlatinumGames’ previous masterpiece NieR: Automata and will let you blast your way through the tower with sleek, frenzied, and absolutely devastating non-stop action. Before we dive into some details, let’s take a moment to talk about the Gideon coffin
Four Sentinels with Gideon Coffins on their backs.
This mysterious device implanted in the back of your character will allow you to use the Gideon Gut, a series of spectral tendrils that spring from the Gideon Coffin allowing a range of different abilities. I’m not going to lie, the best of these powers is definitely the Gideon Arms. While you can normally wield two weapons – one per hand – Gideon weapons allow you to equip two more! Yes, you read that right: you can wield four weapons at any time! Pretty crazy, especially when you can mix and match the weapons as you like.
A sword and hammer equipped like Gideon Arms.
When the game launches, five types of weapons will be available: swords, hammers, bows, staves, and shields. These will allow for great loadout customization, so you can build your ideal Sentinel!
Do you like close quarters combat and heavy weapons? Equip two hammers and two shields! Want to be a balanced fighter with two swords, a bow and a shield? Dark. Are you more of the prudent wizard type? Three sticks and a shield, you get it. Do you really, really, really like bows? Use four bows! Why not – it’s your build after all!
A balanced combination of shield and hammer.
With that in mind, you can treat yourself to totally new gaming experiences just by trying out different versions! What if… we were all equipped with four hammers and could walk through the tower, ha ha… kidding… Unless?
Staves allow powerful long-range attacks!
Elegant cooperative action
Depending on the weapons mounted on your Gideon Coffin, different combos and actions will be available, which in turn will activate unique skills – and that’s when PlatinumGames’ mastery of fast and elegant action comes into play. .
For example, dodging an enemy’s attack at the last moment will allow you to sneak into your own counterattack. You can patiently wait to bait the enemy, then dodge and counter him like a boss while your friends prepare to unleash their attacks as soon as the enemy is knocked out. Or, if you are more of an acrobatics enthusiast, you can launch the enemy into the air with your sword so that your friend who really loves bows can cover them with deadly arrows like there is no tomorrow. .
This one friend who really, really loves bows.
Developer interview and closed beta
If you missed the show at E3, it also featured a special developer interview that gave an overview of the teams and their vision behind Babylon’s Fall.
We’ve got plenty more Babylon’s Fall to show you later this year – sorry to keep you waiting a little longer! See you soon in the tower, Sentinels!
