BABYLON’S FALL NEW COMBAT TRAILER, SEASON 1 DETAILS AND NIER:AUTOMATA COLLABORATION REVEALED
Leading into the launch of the free BABYLON’S FALL PlayStation demo at 8pm 25th February AEDT, SQUARE ENIX® today released a new Combat 101 trailer. The trailer highlights the game’s unique gameplay mechanics, which allows players to wield weapons in both hands while utilizing the power of their Gideon Coffin to equip two additional spectral weapons. This four-weapon combat system provides countless ways to customize the combat experience and unleash devastating combinations against the enemies of the ziggurat.
Also revealed was the Season 1 roadmap and trailer which shows a glimpse of all the action coming to BABYLON’S FALL from its launch through May 31*, including new game modes, a new faction, new weapon type, new story content, new bosses, armor, quests and more. The Premium Battle Pass will be free for all players during Season 1
In BABYLON’S FALL players become a group of warriors known as the sentinels, bonded with special equipment called Gideon Coffins, and throw themselves into an odyssey to overcome the titanic Tower of Babylon, within which sleeps a great legacy. In addition to weapons wielded in both hands, characters can use the power of their Gideon Coffin to equip two more, allowing for combinations of up to four weapons at once. The capabilities of different equipment will also bring endless variation to the strategy that can be employed. The game’s visuals are achieved using a newly developed “brushwork style” to create a unique fantasy setting with a medieval oil painting aesthetic.
Featuring fluid co-op-combat, powerful weapons and a unique, striking art style, the epic world of BABYLON’S FALL can be played solo or in parties up to four**. Following the launch, BABYLON’S FALL will continue to be supported with new game modes, ongoing story content, and additional weapon types at no additional cost.
Further, the BABYLON’S FALL free downloadable demo launches at 8pm AEDT, February 25, on PlayStation®5 and PlayStation®4. The demo gives players access to the opening section of the game where both single player and four player cross-play co-op can be experienced for free. All progress and achievements will be carried over to the full version of the game on PlayStation platforms following the official launch on March 3.
BABYLON’S FALL is launching worldwide on the PlayStation®5 (PS5™) console, PlayStation® 4 and PC on March 3, 2022.
