Lords of the Fallen fans, your prayers have been answered. This sequel to the original 2014 Soulslike ARPG of the same name is nearly out. Depending on who you ask, Hexworks and CI Games’ latest title is either a diamond in the rough or a hard pass filled with “clichés and performance woes.”

Divisive, no? But who cares what gaming journalists think. Chances are you’ve already pre-ordered your copy, and for good reason. This is one brutally challenging game that you don’t want to miss out on.

According to the official Lords of the Fallen account on X, the game launches globally on Oct. 13. However, console players get a head start on PC users, and different time zones receive access earlier than others. Here’s what you need to know, depending on your platform of choice.
