Babylon’s Fall was first announced at Square Enix’s E3 conference in 2018, where it was confirmed for PS4 and PC. However, since then, very little was given but PlatinumGames assured fans last year that the game was still in development. However, when it finally got previewed, the game was met with negative critcism.
So why the bad reception?
- A bad trailer: the trailer featured weird voiceovers, no sound effects and annoying loud singing which may not be what fans were hoping for.
- Gameplay leaves a lot to be desired: It appears stiff and awkward instead of fluid action
RPG, Co-op Playability
Release Date: TBD
