Babylon's Fall is a new upcoming cooperative action RPG from developers of NieR:Automata and Bayonetta, PlatinumGames. The game was initially revealed at E3 in 2018 and later reintroduced with a "game as a service" model last year.

In the game, players take control of a Sentinel warrior and ascend to greatness by climbing the Tower of Babel. Thanks to the game's co-op feature, up to three friends can join in the quests to uncover the tower's fabled treasures and eliminate enemies in their path. Otherwise, players can attempt to scale the tower solo.

"After the Babylonians perished, only their great tower, 'The Ziggurat,' remained. Now, a new empire has come to pillage its ruins and uncover its fabled treasures. Join forces with other Sentinels, unwilling subjects forcibly implanted with Gideon Coffin, relics that grant the few survivors unrivalled powers," the game's description reads.
