HEXWORKS released a roadmap detailing what players can expect from Lords of the Fallen in the coming months.
One of the highlights is addressing concerns about mob density. This was a common concern with critics and players alike, so it’s great to see that addressed in the latest patch. Along with that, players can expect a variety of new quests, 12 new spells, and a wide variety of quality of life improvements to further refine the experience.
HEXWORKS Head of Studio, Saül Gascon, offered the following common about addressing concerns and Lords of the Fallen‘s future.
At HEXWORKS, we’re incredibly proud of the open relationship we’re fostering with our community. We are actively listening to their constructive feedback and working diligently to deliver what we believe, collectively, will elevate Lords of the Fallen even further. Every addition to the game is a labour of love, as we strive to push both its and the genre’s boundariesPress Release
In addition to the roadmap, HEXWORKS made a brief blog post thanking the community for the support, and their commitment to improve Lords of the Fallen’s experience.
It’s safe to say, we’ve released a fair few updates since launch; many of which have been in direct response to your feedback, including reducing mob density, increasing boss difficulty, and restoring vestiges to NG+ mode. To that end, we’d like to take another opportunity to thank you for your ongoing interest and investment in our game, and reaffirm our commitment to further optimising and enhancing Lords of the Fallen with your help and support.
Today, in the spirit of collaboration, we are pleased to share with you our Content Plan for the remainder of 2023 (with continued support next year). As you can see, we have zero intention of slowing down our routine updates any time soon, as we continue to improve overall performance, stability, and optimization.
Alongside these updates, we are planning a number of free events, similar to the ‘Season of the Bleak’ released at Halloween, which will add new questlines, content, armour sets, weapons, spells and more. This is our small way of saying thank you.
You’ll also note that we are already well underway developing the additional features that have also been directly requested by the community, including NG+ modifiers, inventory storage solutions, and split balancing for PVP and PVE going forward. While we can’t provide dates for these features right now, please know they are actively being worked on as we speak.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but rather a snapshot of our internal developments, in our continual strive for better transparency and communication with you, our faithful Lampbearers of Mournstead. We will continue to listen to your feedback. We will continue to act in a timely manner. And we will continue to enhance Lords of the Fallen.

Those interested in learning more about Lords of the Fallen can find the official overview below.
Lords of the Fallen introduces an all-new, epic RPG adventure in a vast, interconnected world more than five times larger than the original game.
After an age of the cruelest tyranny, the demon God, Adyr, was finally defeated. But Gods… do not fall forever. Now, aeons later, Adyr’s resurrection draws nigh. As one of the fabled Dark Crusaders, journey through both the realms of the living and the dead in this expansive RPG experience, featuring colossal boss battles, fast challenging combat, thrilling character encounters, and deep, immersive storytelling. Will your legend be one of light… or one of darkness?
Dare to Hope.
Explore A Vast, Interconnected World
Journey across two expansive, parallel worlds in your epic quest to overthrow Adyr. While the living realm presents its own brutal challenges, untold terrors lurk in the nightmarish realm of the dead.
Define Your Own Legend
Fully customize your character’s appearance from a wide array of visual options, before selecting one of nine character classes. Whichever starting path you take, develop your character to your own playstyle by upgrading stats, weapons, armour and spells.
Master Fast, Challenging Fluid Tactical Combat
Only those that master the deep, tactical combat can hope to survive. Choose from 100s of uniquely brutal weapons, or forgo metal for magic with devastating attacks of the arcane.
Unite or Fight in Online Multiplayer
Experience the expansive, single player campaign alone, or unite with other lampbearers in online co-op. You are free to journey together for as long as you or they desire, collecting vigor (xp) and any weapons or gear enemies drop, ready to bring them back to your own world. Key items and quest progression won’t be transferred, to retain the integrity of your own tale. For those playing online, be warned, as heroes from other realms can, and will invade.
Wield a Device of Ungodly Power
Your lantern possesses the ungodly power to cross between worlds. Use this dark art to reach forgotten places, unearth fabled treasures, and even manipulate the very soul of your foe.
Rise from Death
Fall in the world of the living, and rise again… in the world of the dead. You now have one final chance to return to your living state, as all manner of hellish creature descends upon you.
- Embark upon two vast, parallel worlds – that of the living… and the dead
- Master a fast, fluid and challenging combat system
- Overcome epic and colossal boss battles
- Wield devastating magic attacks and character buffs
- Invite a second player to join your campaign in uninterrupted, online multiplayer (only host saves world progress)
- Encounter a wide array of characters, eager to offer a dubious hand…
- Fully customise your own unique character
- Choose from 9 starting character classes, including Knight, Rogue and Fire Apprentice
Lords of the Fallen is now available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC.
