E3: Babylon's Fall gameplay revealed, beta tests planned

By Jack Taylor – 14 June 2021

Square Enix has revealed new gameplay and information for Babylon's Fall, alongside plans for closed beta tests ahead of launch.

Included as part of the Square Enix Presents summer showcase, Babylon's Fall made a return after some time without any updates. The game, which is in development at PlatinumGames, is an action-heavy affair featuring co-op combat as players join together online to create parties of up to four fighters.

Though no release date was confirmed, the team announced that a series of closed beta tests would be conducted before launch, taking place over three phases and a variety of platforms. Babylon's Fall has been confirmed for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The game description from Square Enix is below.

In Babylon's Fall, players become a group of warriors known as the sentinels, bonded with special equipment called Gideon Coffins, and throw themselves into an odyssey to overcome the titanic Tower of Babylon, within which sleeps a great legacy. In addition to weapons wielded in both hands, characters can use the power of their Gideon Coffin to equip two more, allowing for combinations of up to four weapons at once. The capabilities of different equipment will also bring endless variation to the strategy that can be employed. The game's visuals are achieved using a newly developed "brushwork style" to create a unique fantasy setting with a medieval oil painting aesthetic.
