Godfall might be releasing in less than a month but so far we have only seen the game’s combat. While it is dubbed a “looter-slasher” the loot part of it has been shrouded in mystery up to now. Thankfully, that is about to change…. sort of. Counterplay Games shared new information on the Godfall loot and upgrade systems so players know what they are in for when the game releases on 12 November 2020 on PS5 and PC.
Counterplay Games claims that they wanted Godfall to be the tinkerer’s dream. This means that players are able to really fine-tune their experience in Godfall by putting pieces of gear together to see the numbers and impact on stats immediately. Much of this system relies on the skill tree and loot which gives players the opportunity to tinker and experiment with different builds. The developers say that Godfall delivers fun for those who just want to play the campaign as well as those players who want to continue looking for loot.
When it comes to the Godfall skill tree players can experiment with each Valorplate as they wish. The skill tree starts in each four corner and players can respec at any time if they feel their current build is not working for them. In addition, players don’t need to level up each Valorplate either. Points carry over from one plate to the next. Counterplay claims that players won’t be able to max out their skill tree by the end of the campaign but instead they can grind for more points in the post-game content.
When it comes to crafting, players will have free reign to choose how they want to approach the system. If you need a set material to upgrade and make equipment, players can head to the Water Realm to find it. Later on in the game, Godfall will issue quests to players that reward them with other crafting materials too. Players can upgrade the power of weapons using materials found across the different realms too. In addition, enchanting items will change its rarity. This too requires specific materials which are rarer than others.
Lastly, there are trinkets. Counterplay Games claims these items are the cherry on the top when it comes to builds. While you cannot see them equipped on your character, players can experiment with these items to enhance builds and even unlock new ways to approach combat.
I don’t know about you, but it still seems as if there’s so much we still don’t know about the game. Luckily, players can see it for themselves when it launches on 12 November 2020 for PS5 and PC.
