Which one's the best suited for you?
It's always exciting when a new soulslike title gets announced, so we're sure you've heard of HEXWORKS and CI Games' upcoming title already! What you might not know is what version of the game will be the best one for you, especially if you're looking to pre-order! So, without further ado, here are the edition differences for Lords of the Fallen!
We must begin at the very top: what do you get for pre-ordering? Soulslike titles are known for their challenging gameplay and rewarding experience, of course, but that doesn't mean that we don't want to look good while slaying terrifying bosses! If you're into what's known as "Fashion Souls", you'll be excited to know that the pre-order bonus includes something to spruce up your character: three exclusive armour tincts and a few items to give you a small boost!
If you pre-order Lords of the Fallen, you'll get the following bonuses:
- Exclusive Bronze, Silver, and Gold Armour Tincts, which can be used to recolour any wearable armour item.
- Five items to replenish mana.
- Three items to boost XP. 3 x XP items - used for boosting XP.
- Three items to replenish health.
The first game version is, of course, the Standard Edition, which brings no special extras — you get the base game, and that's it; you're ready to go play! That being said, for those who might not know a whole lot about Lords of the Fallen, in this dark fantasy action RPG, we'll take on the role of one of the fabled Dark Crusaders as we set off on an epic journey to overthrow the demon king known as Adyr.
Fans of the original title will no doubt be excited to know this new entry has a world five times larger than the original, tons of places to explore, a fully customisable character, nine classes, and even co-op, among other exciting new features! So, even with the basic version, you'll be getting a phenomenal experience.
If you buy the Standard Edition of Lords of the Fallen, you'll get:
- The base game.
The other option, perfect for those who are terribly excited about the game, is the Deluxe Edition. Aside from getting the base game and all of its adventures and adrenaline-pumping action, you'll get immediate access to the Dark Crusader starting class and the armour and weapon set to match it! These can be found later on in the journey in the Standard Edition. Additionally, to really celebrate the game, you'll get the 100-page digital artbook along with every in-game character in high-resolution to view in 3D, and the digital soundtrack!
