Ahead of its own estimations, developer Hexworks has finally implemented crossplay between the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S versions of Lords of the Fallen. This includes crossplay for Steam, Epic Games Store, and Steam Deck.

Crossplay was originally set to arrive next week and in two phases with consoles being the first platforms to get the feature. However, update 1.1.249 is already out now and brought the feature with it. Players wanting to connect with friends on a different platform simply need to give them their session password, which can be found and entered in the multiplayer tab of the settings. This will enable them to connect for co-op or PvP gameplay.

Lords of the Fallen Halloween pumpkins.

Something's off about these pumpkins.

This update also added a Halloween event with an exclusive item up for grabs and once again adjusted some balancing, performance, and NG+ aspects.

Here are the full Lords of the Fallen update 1.1.249 patch notes.

Lords of the Fallen 1.1.249 patch notes

  • Crossplay between Steam, Epic, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam Deck enabled.

Season of the Bleak

  • Made sure Mournstead's old song is true.
  • Added some Halloween decorations in the game whilst keeping player immersion.


  • Improved performance at Skyrest Bridge to achieve a smoother framerate.


  • Increase game thread timeout using old quad-core CPUs to fix loading issues when spawning, resting or warping - potentially fixes 2% of the remaining crashes on Sentry.


  • Now the vestige menu will clearly show both options: either move to NG+1 or restart NG+0.
  • After completing the game once, players can now restart the current NG anytime, even if they haven't finished the game.


  • We have adjusted some bosses' defenses and lowered their health to balance the effect of NG+ health multipliers. This ensures a consistent experience in NG+ without changing the overall difficulty; it's simply better tuned for NG+.

Level Design

  • Added a bed flower before the Kinrangr Guardian, reducing travel time between the Windmill vestige and the boss room.


  • Improved collisions in two corners of Upper Calrath to prevent players from getting stuck.
