Gearbox Announces Next-gen Action RPG Godfall for PlayStation 5 and PC; Reveal Trailer Released
At The Game Awards 2019, Counterplay Games and Gearbox have announced a new action-RPG for PlayStation 5 and PC, Godfall.
Developed in Unreal Engine 4, the next-gen title is described as a ‘looter-slasher’ and is slated for a release Holiday 2020 release. The action-RPG will be exclusive to Sony’s upcoming PS5 and PC through the Epic Games Store.
Alongside the announcement, Counterplay and Gearbox released a reveal trailer for the new title, which can be watched below.
“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” said Steve Gibson, President of Gearbox Publishing. “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.”
At its core, 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.
“We’re innovating with Godfall to provide a fresh take on action RPGs by rewarding skill-based offensive gameplay and making every hit matter,” commented Keith Lee, Creative Director of Godfall and CEO of Counterplay Games. “Namely, we want to feed into that yearning for the next best piece in your character build, so we plan to provide plenty of loot to players to ensure there’s meaningful impact to gameplay and playstyles.”
Godfall will become available in late-2020 as a PlayStation 5 console-exclusive and on PC through the Epic Games Store.
