At The Game Awards 2019, the first official game announcement for the PS5 was made and it comes from Gearbox publishing and developer Counterplay Games. Godfall is described as a fantasy “looter-slasher” that will release in Holiday 2020, just like Sony’s next-gen console, the PS5.
Godfall is basically a fantasy ARPG with third-person melee combat, that you will be able to play on PS5 or PC in Holiday 2020, either solo or with up to two other players. There will be a tonne of loot, legendary armour sets, some scary-looking enemies and bosses to face, which will all drop that sweet loot.
Gearbox explains that the third-person melee combat in Godfall is fluid, dynamic and interactive, embracing both offensive and defensive abilities. Most of all, however, it is great to finally get a glimpse of a game officially confirmed for the PS5, which you can do by checking out the announcement trailer at the bottom of this article.
Gearbox and Counterplay Games explains the game on the PlayStation Blog.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#33FFDF” class=”” size=”20″] 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. Namely, our game is uniquely one-part gear driven and one-part player-skill driven. Godfall retains the desire for offence-oriented, mastery-driven combat, rewarding you with head-turning, powerful loot that then inspires your next set of character builds. Godfall’s third-person melee combat is fluid, dynamic and interactive, embracing offence over defence.
While many games these days create one-off cat-and-mouse challenges for players, we want to broaden combat encounters with enduring replayability. In Godfall you can expect satisfying one-against-many enemy encounters along with challenging head-to-head boss fights. Godfall’s designed from the ground up with co-op in mind. You can play the entire game in solo, duo or trio. Your enemies will respond dynamically, mutating their behaviour and attack patterns based on your group size. Our goal for co-op is stronger together, and fun for all. [/perfectpullquote]
