SQUARE ENIX today, during the summer edition of SQUARE ENIX PRESENTS, unveiled an exclusive look at BABYLON’S FALL, developed in partnership with renowned action specialists, PlatinumGames Inc. (NieR:Automata). Featuring fluid co-op-combat, powerful weapons, and a unique, striking art style, the epic world of BABYLON’S FALL is coming to the PlayStation 5 (PS5) console, PlayStation 4, and STEAM. The game can be played in parties up to four and will feature a range of post-launch game modes at no additional cost. More details will be revealed throughout the year and player recruitment for closed beta testing is now open.
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.
Square Enix also released a special behind-the-scenes look at the development of BABYLON’S FALL. The video features interviews and insights from the creative teams at Square Enix and PlatinumGames, including director Kenji Saito.
