From Babylon’s Fall to Babylon’s Fail, a change of style that will have been expensive
Originally presented as a Souls-like with a totally new artistic and graphic style, Babylon’s Fall will finally turn into a hack and slash focusing exclusively on multiplayer and connected features… The beginning of a rift with players. By combining a very expensive launch price, a dubious free-to-play economic model, generic gameplay and an original but completely failed artistic direction, the new license from PlatinumGames had everything of planned failure and it did not fail. . Sales never took off as Square Enix would have liked and the critics were particularly virulent about it to the point that it was considered the lowest rated game on Metacritic for many years.
