Spiders’ Greedfall is an ambitious action RPG set on a mysterious island. The game launches next week on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Greedfall’s launch is only a few short days away. To celebrate its impending launch, publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Spiders put out a gripping new trailer. It shows off some of the environments you’ll be traveling through and mentions a few key plot details. Oh, and of course, we get a good look at some of the monsters that inhabit the mysterious Teer Fradee island. Watch it below.
Greedfall is a huge RPG game from Spiders. The developer has worked on games like Bound by Flame and The Technomancer for Focus; however, this looks like a different beast entirely. In the world of Greedfall, the world has been savaged by a plague known as the Malichor. Fortunately, explorers have found an untainted island that is ripe for exploration and maybe home to a cure. That’s where you come in.
You play as a neutral human who must help decide the fate of the island. Elves are Teer Fradee’s native residents, but many other people have come to the island in hopes of finding riches or a cure. Your choices matter in Greedfall. If you choose to ally with a certain faction, it could have far-reaching consequences all over the island. So players will need to take every step carefully as they shape their own story.
I’ve yet to play a Spiders game for myself. That said, this one has me incredibly intrigued. The mix of real-world and magic make for a setting that seems fun play with, especially in the RPG genre. The team has also said the game will be “classless”, which should mean lots of build diversity. Hopefully, they’re able to deliver an experience that lives up their lofty goals.
Greedfall is out September 10 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
