The German games industry may not (yet) be able to keep up with the best locations in an international comparison, but there are national studios whose works do not have to hide from global competition. From my point of view, Deck13 from Frankfurt am Main has blossomed into such a company in recent years – with fun souls-like action RPGs like Lords of the Fallen, The Surge and The Surge 2.

On May 16, 2023 the current project of the Frankfurter for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series will appear: Atlas Fallen (buy now €59.99 ) was only announced in the course of gamescom 2022 – with first information about the game world and fights. We haven’t seen any gameplay yet. But the reveal trailer made you want more:

A victim of Zelda and Diablo?

And having enjoyed Lords of the Fallen, The Surge, and The Surge 2, I’ve been excited for Atlas Fallen since it was announced last summer. At the same time, I’m also worried that the action role-playing game could go completely under the wheels in May. Finally appears just a few days before The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (on May 12, 2023). June 6th is already there diablo 4 raring to go, followed by Final Fantasy 16 on June 22, 2023. Also scheduled for May and June red case (2.May), Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League (May 26 – meanwhile postponed again) and street fighter 6 (June 2nd), just to name the big blockbusters.

I realize that many of these games appeal to very different audiences. But there will also be gaming enthusiasts who want to take several of these blockbuster releases with them and who have to decide on a few titles due to lack of time and money. At the same time, the sales figures for Atlas Fallen at launch could be a decisive factor in the form in which publisher Focus Entertainment will approach the follow-up project.
