[Update #2]: I'm afraid I have some bad news. Babylon's Fall will be closing down its doors in February 2023.

[Update]: Seemingly spooked by Babylon's Fall's rough launch, Square Enix has now pushed back their action-adventure Forspoken to October 11, 2022.

In an announcement that I must admit has come as a complete surprise to me, PlatinumGames' newest action-RPG Babylon's Fall has now been unleashed onto PC and PlayStation. As you might imagine given the studio, Babylon's Fall is all about over-the-top action and carving your way through hordes upon hordes of enemies, with the added twist being that you can play it in either singleplayer or co-op with up to three other players.

What this looks like in action, that you can get a glimpse of through the freshly posted launch trailer. Have a peek:

As for its quality, I'm sad to say that Babylon's Fall has received a fairly mixed reception so far, with the main complaints being centered around the dated visuals, uninspired gameplay and the equally uninteresting story. So even if Babylon's Fall looks like the type of game you'd love to dive into despite its flaws, I'd still recommend waiting until a major sale happens. As it stands, with its 70€ price tag and remarkably low player count on PC, getting Babylon's Fall at this moment seems like it would be a costly mistake.

Whatever your thoughts on the matter may be, you can learn more about Babylon's Fall, as well as keep an eye on any future updates, over at Steam.
