2020 was a great year for PQube. They released the superb Nexomon: Extinction, dropped the classy Inertial Drift and announced a host of other titles, with one of those being the intriguing Fallen Knight. Now though they’ve returned with a full release date for the futuristic sword-fighting side scroller. And before you know it you’ll probably be hands on with this delightful looking fighter.
Fallen Knight will launch on Xbox One (playable on Xbox Series X|S too), PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC come June 23rd 2021. Created by FairPlay Studios and helped along by PQube, Fallen Knight will see you attempting to blur the lines between integrity and responsibility as you battle against old acquaintances and new enemies in this sword fighting action platformer.
Fallen Knight will provide you with the chance to utilise a disarm mechanic, as you choose to either kill or disarm enemies. Will you uphold or break the Knight’s Code of Honour? There’s a reason for this too, as choosing to disarm enemies unlocks alternate endings and earns ‘honour points’ granting access to different upgrades and abilities.
A futuristic knight’s tale that puts players in the role of a descendant of the great Lancelot in King Arthur’s tale, Fallen Knight will see you take on the role of Lancelot the 50th, as you go about facing off against six unique enemy heroes with a dark past of their own. Expect to find the following and more included…
- Strike – The Black Lightning – Lightning fast and a specialist in close quarters combat, Strike puts an end to his opponents before they even notice. Rumoured to be a former champion, and now notorious as a merciless demon, he is an elite member of enemy forces, The Purge.
- Pierrot – Emo Walker – Known underground as the Code Breaker, Pierrot is a dark and sinister mystery clad in neon lights. Little is known about his past, but Pierrot is severely disabled, a result of surviving bouts of heinous torture at the hands of his foes. He now wears a suit fashioned from the Knights’ very own Holy Technology, and carries an evil force within him thirsty for revenge.
- Juggernaut – Lord of the Blast – The Lord of the Blast? Yeah, he’s exactly what he sounds like! Renouned for his heavy armour, explosive mines and devastating Blazing Shield, everything Juggernaut touches turns to dust. Not known for his cruelty or viciousness, Juggernaut appears to have an ulterior motive and hidden depths – perhaps things are not quite as simple as they seem…
Already available on Apple Arcade, it won’t be long before we get the chance to play through Fallen Knight on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Nintendo Switch or PC. For now, hit up the latest trailer below and then hold tight until that June 23rd release.
