Babylon's Fall>

Babylon’s Fall will launch for PlayStation 5 alongside its previously announced PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam) versions, publisher Square Enix and developer PlatinumGames announced.

Sign-ups for a closed beta test are also now available. The closed beta test will be divided into three phases, each with different testing goals and additional platforms. Phase One, which will begin in late July, will be held for PC via Steam. The still to be dated Phase Two will add PlayStation 4, and Phase Three will add PlayStation 5.

Here is an overview of the game, via Square Enix:

Featuring fluid co-op-combat, powerful weapons and a unique, striking art style, the epic world of Babylon’s Fall is coming to the PlayStation 5 console, PlayStation 4, and Steam. The game can be played in parties up to four and will feature a range of post-launch game modes at no additional cost. More details will be revealed throughout the year and player recruitment for closed beta testing is now open.

In Babylon’s Fall, players become a group of warriors known as the sentinels, bonded with special equipment called Gideon Coffins, and throw themselves into an odyssey to overcome the titanic Tower of Babylon, within which sleeps a great legacy. In addition to weapons wielded in both hands, characters can use the power of their Gideon Coffin to equip two more, allowing for combinations of up to four weapons at once. The capabilities of different equipment will also bring endless variation to the strategy that can be employed. The game’s visuals are achieved using a newly developed “brushwork style” to create a unique fantasy setting with a medieval oil painting aesthetic.
