Lords of the Fallen Free Content Plan 2023


The game is not necessarily prone to crashing and a patch in mid- October address the most egregious ones but ongoing stability is a point that any player can appreciate.


The game's per performance had its issues on console and some PCS at launch and it has already been greatly improved. But the developers will continue to fine-tune this aspect. This is excellent news for fans as one of the most frustrating aspects of modern gaming is subpar performance holding back otherwise excellent games.

Save Game Fixes

This means they will continue to address issues associated with save game corruption. These are not overly prominent and some workarounds have been found online but it's certainly priority after losing your progress is an awful experience. If you have ran into such issues, make sure you reach out to the developers via their official contact and report it so they can work on it.

Co-op and PvP Improvements

Multiplayer is the lifeblood of souls like longevity, so addressing net code connectivity issues and the overall multiplayer experience is must.


The developers will prioritize PvE to tweak balancing and address some overpowered and underpowered elements that have already been in the works as of the most recent patch. Some spells and also made boss weapons upgrade to+ 10 instead of plus 5.


Increased Boss Difficulty

Some players feel the bosses should be tougher and it sounds like the they plan to improve this aspect as well.

Quality of Life Tweaks

Many small things can be improved for overall quality of life and the developers are listening to player feedback to get these into the game. Make sure to share your feedback often.

Other Milestones of the Roadmap focus on actual free extra content that spices up the game extends its longevity and improves your overall experience. These are planned for November and December but will extend into 2024 with Hexworks stating they don't plan on slowing down.

Lords of the Fallen 2023 Roadmap

Inventory Expansion & Stash Inventory Expansion

Plans to increase inventory are now formally announced whether this means the NPC shops will have more goodies remains to be seen. We hope can buy more things from vendors after a certain point in the game to facilitate experimentation with builds. There's also the add a desire to carry more of everything but we'll see how it pans out as developers make their plans clear.


New Spells

New spells divided into two packs. The LOTF Roadmap promises to bring new spells and this would be an excellent addition as there's currently 59 spells between Umbral, Radiant and Inferno and it would be amazing to increase and improve build variety. It would also impact the Dev of your commitment to a specific line and perhaps give more incentive to increase your spell slots.


New Quests

  • Rhogar Armour Set & Questline

  • Umbral Armour Set & Questline

  • Radiant Armour Set & Questline

The new spells will likely be associated with new quest lines for thematic consistency but they may also be added as treasure or boss exchange.


New Armor

Special new quest lines and rewards of an armor set for each Radiant, Rhogar and Umbral have been announced. They will be quest related also means added exploration and complexity to playthrough so a big plus for existing and new players. These new quests may also include new mini bosses and perhaps impact the rest of the game in some form.


New Grievous Strikes

These are the critical moves of the game so there'll be new move sets to be performed when executing them. Considering there are 12 different weapon types, they each get their own unique new flare.


New Additional Secret Boss Weapon Abilities

Some specific boss weapons gain unique abilities after performing a certain amount of steps and when used in a certain way discovering. These is fun for explorers and can really change your gameplay, so adding more is certainly a plus. There were a very few boss weapons with this mechanic so the hype around it died quickly. It's great to see the developers plan to expand on this aspect.


Split PvE/PvP Balancing

This is something that took from Software over 10 years to figure out so we’re very happy to hear that Hexworks is already working on it. There's nothing worse as a player than having your PvE build nerfed because someone is abusing it in PvP encounters that you never do. You should also help optimize PvP encounters so there's more fairness around fights and to create more creative approaches that skip the cookie cutter op flavor of the week.


Gamepad Rebinding

This is a commonly asked for feature and it is in development as being able to rework bindings can really improve your overall experience with any game.


New Game + Modifiers

This specific update had been announced as in the works earlier on when developers tweak the way vestages worked in New Game Plus. The New Game Plus modifiers will allow players to fully customize their NG Plus experience whether that's retaining all vestages, keeping just a few or removing them completely. It will also include other fun modifiers like a hardcore mode one death equals perade death, item randomizers, enemy randomizers, etc. The feature set is yet to be fully defined but the developer announced the intention to release the modifier system before the end of the year.


Lords of the Fallen DLC Leaks

Right now the Hexworks team is working on optimizing the game and improving its stability performance and player experience. With new free content announced, it's inevitable to wonder whether the game will also get paid DLC and expansions. Given Lords of the Fallen sold over 1 million copies in 10 days, it's enough of a commercial success to warrant paid content in the future. with the ongoing performance improvements and the inevitable winter sales that will add new users in December and January, the player base will increase and be significant enough that it could support paid content.
