Developer Hexworks and publisher CI Games have launched the Season of Revelry in its RPG Soulslike, Lords of the Fallen. This festive update includes new quests, weapons, armor, spells, snowball fights and more and is available now. Plus, it’s part of this free two-part update, Trial of the Three Spirits, starting next week on December 21st.
Here’s what to expect in this Season of Revelry Part One update, which Hexworks is calling Offerings of Oreus, which includes a lot of:
- Six new mantras: These spells include Immolation, Radiant Shield Throw and Holy Arrow Shot.
- Three new projectiles: Players can now throw blood vomit, explosive mines, and frost worms at enemies from a distance.
- New boss weapon abilities: Players can now unlock powerful abilities for all boss weapons obtained after defeating bosses.
- Seasonal decorations: Hexworks says Maurnstead’s vestiges (the bonfires of this game, basically) are decked out in festive decorations for the raveli season.
On December 21st, the Trial of the Three Spirits update will go live. It features three new questlines, three new armor sets, and three new weapons, each representing one of the three gods: Oreus’ Radiance, Adair’s Rogues, and the mysterious Umbral. Additionally, players will be able to change their character’s name, body shape and gender, skin tone, hair color, and other physical attributes, but only after completing a new quest to find the shards of the Mirror of Distortion.
Elsewhere in Trial of the Three Spirits, players will be able to use new Grievous attacks. Hexworks says each family weapon has two unique finishers – one for single-handed wielding and one for dual wielding. Another community-requested item coming in this update is a storage box that allows players to deposit up to 2000 items in the Skyrest Bridge Coffer.
Finally, players will be able to rebind gamepad buttons starting with the Trail of the Three Spirits update, and they can launch snowballs at enemies and attackers with a new snowball thrower.
After this update, Hexworks says content will continue to hit Lords of the Fallen in 2024 with the rollout of “new features and enhancements left over from the content plan announced last month.” It includes revisions to PvP and PvE, the release of a new Game Plus modifier system, and more.
Lords of the Fallen hits PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC on October 13, 2023, and is now live-game as part of Season of Revelry – Offerings of Orius.
