What is Lords of Exile?

Lords of Exile takes us off to a world that has become treatened by creatures of the dark. A Far Eastern land, accompanying those horrors of the nights are the samurai. That therefore calls on a bloodthirsty knight to take back command, vanquishing all into the darkness forevermore. 

Playing out in an 8-bit style, Lords of Exile is a fairly linear experience, one that takes you through multiple stages of classic adventuring. With bosses at the conclusion of these levels, and various skills to aqcuire, Lords of Exile shouldn’t provide anything that hasn’t been seen elsewhere previously. 

But what it does bring is variety – a range of mechanics, weaponry and powers as you play through the adventure ahead via the eyes of a couple of characters; Gabriel and Lyria. You can throw in some unlockable game modes too, a Speedrunner and Boss Rush mode. 

The key features

Lords of Exile may be retro in style, but it’s full of key features that you’ll want to get eyes on. Expect all of the following…

  • Levels – Explore 8 levels of classic linear design, each featuring challenging obstacles and enemies to overcome. At the end of each level, you’ll face off against a powerful boss that will put your skills to the test. And as Gabriel, you’ll receive an extra skill after defeating each boss, allowing you to progress even further and take on greater challenges.
  • Gameplay Variety – Experience a range of mechanics, from throwing weapons to melee combat, down stabs, jumping, and dashing. Unlock the powers of Gabriel’s curse to enhance your abilities. Play as both Gabriel and Lyria, each offering a unique and distinct gameplay experience for endless replayability.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
