'Babylon's Fall' Season 2 Begins Later This Month, Content And Roadmap Details

by Rainier on May 20, 2022 @ 4:40 p.m. PDT

Babylon's Fall is an online multiplayer action RPG where you take on the role of a Sentinel and face ferocious enemies and dreadful dungeons alongside companions as you journey to reach the peak of the Ziggurat.

Featuring fluid co-op-combat, powerful weapons and a striking art style, Babylon's Fall can be played in parties up to four. A range of post-launch game modes will be available at no additional cost.

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 also brings endless variation to the strategy that can be employed.

Since Babylon's Fall is a co-op game with a party of up to four players, playing with a team gives you all kinds of options in combat, letting you combine your different weapons and abilities to conquer the many challenges of the tower.

Babylon's Fall Season 2: The Light of Aaru starts May 31st and will run until 29 November, 2022.

Season 2 Roadmap

Extension of Season 2

The seasons in Babylon's Fall have been planned to run in cycles of around three months, but based on the feedback we have received from our players, we feel that we need a period to re-evaluate the game’s future operating roadmap and accordingly have decided to extend Season 2 by three months, meaning it will now run until Tuesday, November 29, 2022.

We are currently running the final checks on the Season 2 content, in order to release it as planned on Tuesday, May 31, 2022. Season 2 will contain numerous updates based on player feedback, and these will be detailed in an official live stream and patch note release coming soon.

Season 2 will include the Ver. 1.2.1 small-scale update, but after that we will be using the extra three months of the season extension for development on the next update, and so will not be making any further updates or adding new content during that time.
The game will not see any content updates over the 3-month extension, but you will still be able to play as usual, so there is no need to worry.

When the Season 2 update hits, the season duration will show as “Until August 29, 2022” in-game, but the correct period is actually “Until November 29, 2022” instead. This incorrect information will be corrected with an update soon afterwards.

Babylon's Fall is available for PS4, PS5 and PC (Steam).
