SquareEnix has unveiled new details about PlatinumGames’ upcoming title Babylon’s Fall during today’s E3 2021 presentation.

In Babylon’s Fall, players will take on the role of sentinels—special warriors who have been bonded to special equipment known as “Gideon Coffins”—and will be tasked with climbing none other than the Tower of Babylon itself. Players will be able to utilize their Gideon Coffins to allow them to use up to four weapons at once, meaning a greater variety of strategies can be employed at will.

A hack-and-slash RPG at its core, Babylon’s Fall will challenge players with exploring dangerous dungeons and combatting the many dangers which lurk within. While new details surrounding the game were showcased in today’s trailer, perhaps the most surprising piece of information came from the post-trailer interview with PlatinumGames staff which confirms that players will be able to team up with others in order to take on the many dungeons which inevitably await them.



Babylon’s Fall is slated to release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam, although a launch date has yet to be set. Interested in getting in on the action as early as possible?

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
