At the Square Enix E3 showcase earlier yesterday, revealed a brand-new project developed in partnership with PlatinumGames Inc. (Scalebound! Ha!), titled Babylon’s Fall. From what I gather from the trailer, Babylon’s Fall appears the tried-and-world tale of a befallen affluent society.. you know.. upon discovery of a fucked up thingy, the Oversoul…
I’m not sure if all of the wars sequenced here were fought pre-Awakening, or whether Babylon’s Fall will take you through them– but it sure seems like it. I also wonder how much of Scalebound we’ll get here with gameplay. The one battle sequence seems like they spun the more Sunset Overdrive tone from that scrapped Xbox exclusive into something more Devil May Cry-meets-Dark Souls.
Either way, Babylon’s Fall is an interesting surprise (can we get Wycleaf Jean on the soundtrack?), and is set to release on PS4 and PC in 2019. (Don’t hold your breath.)
