Lords of the Fallen 2 is in 'vision and concepts' stages

Lords of the Fallen only released in late October, but executive producer Tomasz Gop told Eurogamer that the team is already 'working on vision and concepts' for a sequel. It's great news for people who love the idea of playing Dark Souls more than they actually enjoy Dark Souls.

The first game was created as a collaboration between German developer Deck 13 and Polish producer CI Games. You may have missed it in the flurry of big names that released from October through November, but Lords of the Fallen seems to have found enough support to make a sequel worthwhile.

The original game took some pretty liberal inspiration from the Souls franchise in crafting its combat and dark, foreboding world - our review praised its weighty battles and shiny visuals while lamenting game-breaking glitches and a lack of online play. Never thought we'd miss those asshole red phantoms showing up at the worst possible time, but here we are.

CI Games also announced this week that it's working on Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 - the follow-up to Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2's wind-speed simulating, bullet-drop compensating sharpshooter action.
