Lords of the Fallen version 1.5 "Master of Fate" update now available

CI Games and Hexworks have released a Version 1.5 update to Lords of the Fallen (2023), titled "Master of Fate".

'Master of Fate' includes the final free update for Lords of the Fallen in the Advanced Game Modifier System, in which a player can set various modifiers for a New Game+ playthrough, such as enemy randomizers, loot randomizers, and an iron-man permadeath mode.

A lengthy Master of Fate trailer can be found below alongside a description via CI Games and a statement by Hexworks head of studio Saul Gascon.

CI Games today launched Version 1.5 – ‘Master of Fate’, a free update for all owners of dark fantasy action-RPG, Lords of the Fallen. ‘Master of Fate’ is the culmination of over 30 updates since launch, resulting in significant improvements to performance, stability and optimisation, alongside rigorous difficulty balancing in response to user feedback.

Available on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5, the update also delivers the final milestone of the game’s extensive post-launch roadmap: the Advanced Game Modifier System.

Master of Fate concludes a weekly cadence of new content and quality of life enhancements for Lords of the Fallen vastly improving the experience for players, including:

  • Significant performance, optimisation and stability improvements
  • Rigorous difficulty balancing including mob density reduction & nerfed ranged attacks
  • Split PvP and PvE game balancing
  • Online multiplayer enhancements for improved matchmaking and connection stability
  • New questlines including Season of the Bleak, Trial of the Three Spirits, and Way of the Bucket
  • New armour and weapon sets
  • Additional secret boss weapon abilities
  • Improved boss encounters with additional movesets & new AI
  • 12 new spells including the arena-devastating Immolation
  • New grievous strikes: each weapon family now features two unique finishers: one for singlehanded wielding and another for two-handed wielding
  • Three new projectiles: Blood Vomit, Explosive Mines, and Frost Worms.
  • QOL updates including: Inventory expansion, appearance reset, storage functionality & gamepad rebinding

The latest new feature – the Advanced Game Modifier System – places power directly into players’ hands, allowing them to fully customise their game experience, using any combination of seven modifiers, to make the game easier, more difficult, or simply a completely new experience every time. Modifiers include the ability to randomise enemies, alter mob density and even enable a form of permadeath.

Today’s release also coincides with a 50% discount for Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation Store – the deepest discount to date – which will be followed by the same discount during CI Games’ Steam publisher sale starting 29th April.

Saul Gascon, Executive Producer and Head of Studio, HEXWORKS, said:

“We’d like to thank the many players who have embarked upon Mournstead since we launched six months ago; their belief in our vision has been a real driving force for us. In response to their support for the game, we expanded the period of live support for Lords of the Fallen with an ambitious post-launch roadmap. This was built around four significant content updates, alongside numerous smaller releases, which included tons of new content and major performance and stability improvements. Reaching Version 1.5 with the Master of Fate update and its genuinely groundbreaking modifier system marks the completion of that roadmap, making the Lords of the Fallen experience the best it's ever been."
