During The Game Awards, Gearbox Software revealed that it will publish the upcoming Godfall, a “looter-slasher” coming from developer Counterplay Studios. Set for release holiday 2020, the third-person action-RPG will release on PC, and more notably PlayStation 5. This is the first confirmation of game coming to next-gen, a full year before the new consoles planned to release next year.
In the trailer showed off during The Game Awards, we see three heroes wield magical weapons as they face off against a massive foe approaching from the sky. According to the press release for the game, Godfall is a melee-focused action-RPG focusing on fighting foes, collecting loot, and amassing player. Though you play solo, you can also join groups of up to three players to take on the more dangerous challenges.
It’s interesting to note that Godfall has been a known game for some time. On the developer’s official website, the game has been in development for a few years now, and it’s been funded by Kowloon Nights, an independent video game investment firm that also has some stake in the upcoming game from Ico and Shadow of the Colossus creator Fumito Ueda. Gearbox Publishing will be handling publishing for the game.
