The game is set to release on PS4, PS5, and PC on March 3.
At Sony's State of Play in December 2022, Square Enix and PlatinumGames gave audiences an updated look at Babylon's Fall, an action role-playing game hack and slash title. Scheduled to be released in less than two months, the cooperative dungeon crawler has already gone Gold. This was announced during 'The Fall of Babylon Official Live Stream #01', along with the announcement that a day one patch is currently in development.
The 2022 trailer wowed audiences, but many were left with a bad taste in their mouths once it was revealed that players will need to be online at all times to run the game, even if they fight solo in the tower. A Square Enix account will also be required. During the title's closed beta test in November 2022, IGN noted that the game still felt like it was in a "tough state," with uninspired quests, boring hallways, and a boring loot system. Improvements may have been made in the past couple of months, but we don't expect a complete overhaul.
The Fall of Babylon will put players in the shoes of a customizable Sentinel. The game will have five weapon types at launch - swords, hammers, bows, staves, and shields - and these can be used to create a four-weapon loadout. Each has unique skills and abilities, and as with other PlatinumGames titles, much of the game will be spent destroying enemies in the most forceful way possible. The goal is simply to climb to the top of Babylon Tower, collecting loot along the way. While quests can be played solo, The Fall of Babylon also supports four-player cooperative multiplayer.
Babylon's Fall is scheduled for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 on March 3, 2022. Players who purchase the Digital Deluxe version of the game will be able to access the full game on February 28, 2022. PlatinumGames is also hard at work on Bayonet 3, which is expected to release on Nintendo Switch this year.
