Microsoft wasn’t the only one announcing next generation console news tonight at The Game Awards 2019 as Sony also announced the first PlayStation 5 title at the show, Godfall.
Godfall is in developer by developer Counterplay Games and Gearbox Publishing and is described as a looter slasher. The game will launch exclusively on the PlayStation 5 and PC in Holiday 2020.
Here is what Gearbox Publishing president Steve Gibson said on the announcement:
We’re thrilled at Gearbox to have been chosen by Counterplay Games to bring their creative vision of Godfall to gamers on the PlayStation 5 and PC. As we continue our mission to entertain the world, Godfall is a perfect fit with Gearbox Publishing. Playing with your friends and gearing up are some of the things we love most.
Godfall is a brand new, next-gen looter-slasher, set in a bright fantasy universe filled with heroic knights and arcane magic. Godfall is a fantasy action RPG that utilizes high-impact third-person melee combat to engage players as they hunt for loot, don legendary armor sets, and defeat vicious enemies. As players face challenging missions in the world of Godfall, enemies and bosses will reward fans with head-turning loot as they are vanquished. Godfall can be played entirely in solo, duo or three-player coop, providing fun for all.
- Third-Person Action RPG – Counterplay Games is innovating with Godfall to provide a fresh take on third-person action combat by rewarding skill-based offensive gameplay and making every hit matter.
- Looter-Slasher – As players face challenging missions in the world of Godfall, enemies and bosses will reward fans with head-turning loot as they are vanquished. Counterplay Games is aiming to feed into that yearning for the next best piece in your character build, so they plan to provide plenty of loot to players to ensure there’s meaningful impact to gameplay and playstyles.
- Better Together – When playing Godfall, you can go it alone, or play with anyone at any time. Bosses and enemies have been designed from the ground up with co-op in mind, with special abilities that counter multiple combatants attacking from different angles.
