Developed by Platinum Games (Platinum Games) and published by Square Enix, the new action RPG “Babylon’s Fall” (BABYLON’S FALL) was severely criticized by the outside world. Square Enix has not given up, promising to continue to support Platinum Studio to continue developing the game.
It was launched in North America on March 3, featuring the performance of the combat system of “Nier: Automata”, and “The Fall of Babylon”, which supported 4 people to fight together, did not receive a good response from the market, even though it was in the “Eldon Circle” at that time. Under the edge, but this work is still not regarded as a next-generation 3A-level work by most players (it is also released on the PS5 platform), the player’s score on Metacritic is less than 3 points, and the media score is also in a dilemma of failing.
On the Steam platform, “The Fall of Babylon” is also in a state of mixed praise and criticism, but it is worth mentioning that there have been less than 200 reviews since its release. According to the same data on Steamchart, this game has the highest number of gamers. The number is only 1,166.
In other words, this may represent an opportunity for Square Enix, because there are still many players who have not played the game, so continuing to update and add content has become their focus right now.
Today, we revealed new information about version 1.1.0, the NieR:Automata collaboration event and the future of BABYLON’S FALL development.

Just last week, SQEX stated that players are concerned about whether such a poor listing performance will put the game service in a dangerous state of being shut down at any time. In this regard, the official emphasized that there is no plan to reduce the size of the development team, and announced that the content of the second quarter revision has just been released. Completion, the team is preparing to develop new content for the third season.
At the same time, at the end of March, “The Fall of Babylon” will usher in a limited-time IP collaboration with “Nier: Automata”, and strive to allow existing players to continue to cultivate and attract new players to join.
As for the Steam version, Taiwan is in a region-locked state and cannot enter the Steam store page.
