Guess this shows it, Platinum and Square became bunk-buddies after Nier: Tomato.

What is it with devs not showing gameplay? Surely they have some available?

I know right? Feels...so weird. Like with a sequel I get it, you can get hype. But this tells me NOTHING.

Then let's speculate!

Looks like that knight didn't have his own weapon, and has some sort of energy tendril that stole the enemy's weapon.

Could it be indicative of a weapon stealing mechanic? Not something we see often, in fact, I think the only game I know of is El Shaddai.

There's nothing really known about the director yet. Kamiya doesn't seem to be involved, Inada made the blog post about it - but since he's the head of the whole studio that could mean anything.

The huge suits of armor don't look really mobile, would be interesting to see a Japanese developer make an action game about tanking hits instead of dodging them, would be cool to see how that would work. Tendrils seem interesting, perhaps a weapon steal mechanic as you note. Could also be an indication of the weapon being more ranged ala Kratos' blades of chaos.

Here's the lore, courtesy of https://www.reddit.com/user/captain_tedious:
All the text I could make out below. Some of the dates may slightly be off as they didn't always stop changing at the same point the text was most clear. Will update this if anyone spots any mistakes.
CE 5000 Discovery of the Oversoul: During Albenland's era of expansion, its people discover an unknown energy known as the Oversoul.
CE 5017 The Age of Dawn: After years of experimentation, the Helos Empire succeeds at developing weapons that harness the Oversoul.
CE 5061 The Oversoul Prophecies: A small group of seers hailing forma ll kingdoms use crystallized Oversoul fragments to predict the future and write down these prophecies in the Ephesian Book.
CE 5087 The Apocalypse: The seers have visions of an all consuming darkness.
CE 5096 Waland's Journey: By the order of the Helos Empire, Waland travels to the darklands to the far south foretold by the Ephesian Book as the location of mankind's revival.
CE 5109 The Soul Riots: With resentment rising against the ruling class over its use of the Oversoul, riots break out among the masses.
CE 5111 World War: As the rulers of each kingdom turn against their respective populaces, the riots escalate into full-blown war.
CE 5200 Divine Punishment: Disgusted by humanity's unwillingness to learn from its past mistakes, the elder gods unleash their wrath upon mankind.
CE 5205 Birth of a Goddess: With the purpose of rescuing humanity from the brink of extinction a new goddess Gaia is born.
CE 5208 Birth of a New World: Gaia creates a new world in order to give humanity one last chance.
CE 5220 Age of Harmony: Humans begin to inhabit the new world, and a period of peace follows.
CE 5338 Scholars of Gaia: Concerned about people losing their faith in Gaia, the high priest Darius forms a consort known as the Scholars of Gaia.
CE 5356 War of Beliefs: Unable to overcome their ideological differences, the Scholars of Gaia and the Helios Order start engaging in frequent skirmishes.
CE 5347 End of a Dream: The public execution of a nonbeliever by the Scholars of Gaia creates tension among the masses
CE 5385 Spread of the Soul Plague: The unexplained outbreak of the soul plague prompts the different factions to capitalize on the people's fear and expand their efforts to convert the masses.
CE 5430 New World Academy: Fearing for the future of mankind after rediscovering the Ephesian Book, the seer Maria forms the New World Academy amid the rapidly worsening war.
CE 5450 Punishment: On the Day of Judgment, Gaia turns against mankind.
CE 5475 Awakening: Deep within the Shrine of Souls, the Nomads are born.
CE 5500 Rebirth: Led by the Nomads, Humanity strikes back against Gaia.

EDIT: first 'screenshot' / 'poster' showed four characters standing under the logo. Perhaps its a team-game? Or a medival styled beat'm up like Dragon's Crown?

Possibly, but that conflicts with how quick the tendril could strike.

I see the word 'soul' used a bit in the text. We could be looking at a possession mechanic of some sort.

Unconfirmed. We do know the same team as Nier: Tomato is working on it with the exception of Taro. I think this is Platinum knowing where the money is and playing on it.

I think Platinum Games is spacing their reveals. Let the hype for Astral Chain sink in and then hook us with some Bayonetta 3 footage, and when that's released they'll pump out more Babylon's Fall.

New information just given on the game in the latest State of Play from Sony.

It's a basic action game so far. Big enviroments, Souls-like aesthetic (aka, Medival with influences of Berserk). What interested me most was that you have a grapple that can be used like Nero/ Donte where you hook towards a foe or them to you. You can also grapple weapons away from foes or grab them and slamdunk them.

Might be a PS4 exclusive.

Here's the footage:

Looks a bit like NieR: Automata with the flying swords. Also seems to have a timed dodge counter.

I think it's coming to PC as well.

Yeah I saw that discussion too, only just now made my post. Honestly I'm interested, not super excited yet, but I am interested. Will be picking it up unless multiplayer is revealed to be a really big focus.

So... We finally get a new trailer, and it's a 4-player co-op live service game. My interest in this one was already not particularly high, but yeah, way to drop it even further.

And on top of that... The game is not exactly pleasant to look at, in my opinion.

Live services. Microtransactions. From Platinum? This has to be a joke. Some kind of troll set up.

It's published by Square Enix, so no surprises that it looks like a dogshit GaaS title. Will flop even harder than Avengers.

But Platinum is agreeing to these terms. Agreeing to microtransactions.

Not necessarily. We don't know what their contract looks like, hell it's very possible they might have only been hired to work on the combat engine and then leave the rest to Square - we don't know the details. That said, Platinum Games isn't the saint it was anymore imo. Their glory days of making hit upon hit upon hit that were must buys has past I feel.

If Square Enix are financing the game, I don't know that Platinum has any say in the matter. As Raeng says, their reputation has taken a hit over the last few years. Whether we can blame them for this or not, I can at least say I'm not interested in buying a GaaS title with microtransactions from any dev. Hard pass from me, they MAY get my attention once the game is bargain bin (or "morbid curiosity") price.

Seems decent. Chose the archer.

But as soon as I get to the main village and see all the daily quests, season, festival crap I was like NOPE.

Not suprised by how awful this sounds. As soon as we knew it was to be a "service" title, it was likely that all this shit would find its way in. Very disappointing. I fear Bayo3 may be the last "true" Platinum game, and even that game I'm a little worried about.

Heard the mechanics open up much later. Actually looks good but live services kills it.

Scared for if/when Capcom decides to make another Dragon's Dogma.
