‘Godfall’ updates: Fantasy ARPG title combines loot progression and third-person melee combat
Neither developer Counterplay Games nor publisher Gearbox Publishing announced a definite “Godfall” release date at the moment except that it’s going to arrive by late 2020. However, interest in the upcoming title recently spiked when a supposed gameplay video was supposedly leaked online.
Leaked "Godfall" Trailer
Indeed, it was confirmed by the official “Godfall” Twitter account that the leaked video is authentic. However, the actual game would be incomparably better in quality than the leaked footage since that was taken a year ago and a lot of improvements to the title were made since then.
“We can confirm that the circulating trailer is year-old PC footage used as part of an internal presentation,” a message was posted on Godfall’s official Twitter account. “We are energized by your excitement and look forward to showing you just how far this game has come. Stay tuned for a more detailed look soon!”
For those who want to see the official “Godfall” trailer, there’s a 1-minute clip posted on the game's social media site as well. Meanwhile, here’s what is known about the upcoming title.
“Godfall” Genre, Gameplay
It is described as an action role-playing game by most publications. However, developer Counterplay Games is a bit more descriptive and said that it’s “third-person loot-driven fantasy action RPG,” according to GameRant. “Our goal with Godfall is to reforge fantasy ARPG-style loot progression and third-person melee combat into a whole new genre: The Looter-Slasher,” Keith Lee, Godfall Creative Director and CEO of Counterplay Games, Keith Lee wrote.
The creative director went on to explain what makes the title unique. “Namely, our game is uniquely one-part gear driven and one-part player-skill driven,” Lee added. “Godfall retains the desire for offense-oriented, mastery-driven combat, rewarding you with head-turning, powerful loot that then inspires your next set of character builds.”
“Godfall” will be released for the PlayStation 5 making it the first confirmed game for the Sony console. The game will also be released for PC and could be purchased via Epic Games Store by Holiday 2020.
Unfortunately, no definite date has been mentioned yet. Be sure to stay tuned for more updates.
