Because it is coming to multiple platforms, in multiple regions, of course...

Fall of Light: Darkest Edition is coming soon to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, publisher Digerati announced today. You'll be able to download it on your favorite console very soon, but the exact day depends on where you live and which system you prefer.

First, Fall of Light arrives on Xbox One, on August 14. Next, it reaches PlayStation 4 on August 21st and 22nd (first in North America and then a day later in Europe). Finally, on August 23, Nintendo Switch owners will be able to snag it.

Originally arriving on Steam in 2017, Fall of Light has since been enhanced for this "darkest" edition, so that it includes an all-new dungeon with new enemies, traps, and weapons. Sometimes, it pays to wait.

In Fall of Light, players explore a world shrouded in darkness. You are Nyx, a battle-hardened warrior who is traveling with his luminescent daughter, Aether. The two heroes must stick close to one another if they are to see the perilous journey through to its conclusion.

Here is a list of game features, straight from the publisher:
  • 20 different battle stances: get ready to face hordes of shadowy enemies!

  • 10 weapon classes: pick your favorite combo of close-range weapons, crossbows, and shields

  • All-new dungeon: complete with new enemies and dangers, exclusive to the Darkest Edition

  • Protect Aether: her light pierces the darkness and you are stronger together, so keep her safe!

  • Unlock hidden secrets: learn more about the history and lore of Nyx’s world

  • Platinum Trophy and 1000G Achievements available respectively for PS4 and Xbox One versions

  • Supports the following languages: French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese-Brazil, Simplified Chinese, Hungarian
Fall of Light is the debut title from indie studio RuneHeads, and was inspired by the likes of ICO and Dark Souls. Check out the trailer embedded above and decide whether you're up for a journey through darkness...
