There’s a new Babylon’s Fall update available now on PC, PS4, and PS5. This latest patch aims to make the campaign easier to beat, helping to funnel players towards more team-based, endgame content.

As mentioned before, this helps fast-track players towards the endgame in Babylon’s Fall, where grinding for better gear become more important. These changes are also likely to be the result of dwindling player numbers, meaning that many Sentinels have been forced to play missions on their own without finding an online match. From experience, playing Babylon’s Fall alone is pretty joyless. As you’ll see in the patch notes below, Platinum has greatly reduced the variety and number of enemies present, which should certainly help.

Without pulling any punches, BF is easily one of the worst games of 2022 so far. Visually it’s a mess with ugly character models trudging through dull mazes, the storyline doing very little to keep players engaged.

What’s perhaps more egregious is Square Enix’s blatant attempts to monetise the game beyond its laughable £59.99 price tag. We explain more about Babylon’s Fall microtransactions here.

On day one, there’s a battle pass, daily missions, login rewards, and plenty of ways to spend money on microtransactions. Even if Babylon’s Fall launched as a free-to-play title, we’d still be left very disappointed.

Square and PlatinumGames recently put out a player survey, teasing that a potential graphics upgrade may be on the way.
