Not even a year after release, the Square Enix and Platinum Games-codeveloped online action game Babylon’s Fall will end its service. The game was made to be a live service where players will play through seasons, but that just won’t be the case.
Sadly, Babylon’s Fall won’t even see its first birthday. Service for the game is slated to end on February 27, 2023, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam. The game initially launched on March 3, 202, and has since been a ghost town without even charting after release.
A statement from the developer shares that Season 2 of the game will run through November 29, 2022. The final season will then begin that same day, where players can search for the ranking rewards of Season 2.
The full statement:
Greetings Sentinel Force,
Thank you very much for playing BABYLON’S FALL.
With the desire of delivering an exhilarating online multiplayer action RPG set in an elaborate high fantasy world, we launched the game’s official service on Thursday, March 3, 2022, and have continued to undertake additional development and operations. However, it is with deep regret to inform you that we will be terminating the game’s service on February 27, 2023.
As a result, we will also cancel the large-scale updates that we had planned. In terms of the plan moving forward, Season 2 will run until Tuesday, November 29, 2022, as scheduled, and the Final Season will begin with the maintenance scheduled on the same day. This Final Season is the period during which you can earn the ranking rewards of Season 2.
As a way of expressing our gratitude to all our players, we plan to implement as many events and other initiatives as we can, leading up to the end of the service.
During gameplay, players take control of various characters through fantasy-style levels. The game does feature a single-player element where players can get through the game alone, but the 4-player online option is where the real fun should have lied. Further, there were online missions that never ended, but the game did feature a narrative. However, to uncover that players would have to fight through various flowers of enemies as they collect loot and take on challenges.
Goodnight, sweet prince.
