Lords of the Fallen Adds Genre-Defining Advanced Game Modifier System with its ‘Master of Fate’ Update

The latest content update for dark fantasy action-RPG, Lords of the Fallen is available now on Xbox® Series X and PlayStation®5. The free update delivers the final milestone of the game’s extensive post-launch roadmap: the advanced game modifier system.

Master of Fate imbues power directly into players’ hands, allowing them to fully customise their game experience. The modifier system, while not for the fainthearted, can even be enabled from the very first playthrough of Lords of the Fallen, throwing down the gauntlet to action-RPG veterans new to the game. Among the seven different modifiers available to players are randomised enemy spawns and loot drops, together with an Ironman mode; with these three modifiers enabled, Lords of the Fallen effectively becomes a roguelite.

Master of Fate concludes a weekly cadence of new content and significant performance and quality of life enhancements for Lords of the Fallen, with over 30 updates launched since October 2023 that vastly improve the experience for players.

Lords of the Fallen - Version 1.5 - Master of Fate


Master of Fate features a wide range of modifiers, enabling players to tweak and customise playthroughs for a truly unique experience every time, including:

  • Random enemy spawn: Every encounter becomes completely unpredictable with every playthrough, with any of the 70+ enemy types capable of appearing at any point
  • Random loot spawn: Players will never know what item they’ll pick up next, as any weapon, piece of armour, or item can be randomly found throughout Mournstead
  • Ironman: For the ultimate git gud challenge; get slain in Umbral with this modifier enabled and players will have to start their journey again… albeit with items and character level intact.
  • Withered healing: Health items and spells will only replenish as withered healing, which can only be regained fully by dealing damage to enemies, encouraging aggressive play to survive.
  • Mob density modifier: Adjust the density of enemy mobs encountered through the journey across Mournstead in both Axiom and Umbral

Saul Gascon, Executive Producer and Head of Studio, HEXWORKS, said: “We’d like to thank the many players who have embarked upon Mournstead since we launched six months ago; their belief in our vision has been a real driving force for us. In response to their support for the game, we expanded the period of live support for Lords of the Fallen with an ambitious post-launch roadmap. This was built around four significant content updates, alongside numerous smaller releases, which included tons of new content and quality of life patches. Reaching v1.5 with the Master of Fate update and its genuinely groundbreaking modifier system marks the completion of that roadmap, making the Lords of the Fallen experience the best it’s ever been.”
