FRISCO, Texas (December 2, 2021) – Gearbox Publishing and Counterplay Games continue to celebrate the one year anniversary of action role-playing game, Godfall, by announcing the all-new Challenger Edition is coming to the Epic Games Store on December 7.


The Godfall: Challenger Edition is priced at $14.99, but can be grabbed for free on the Epic Game Store from December 9-16. Additionally, Godfall: Challenger Edition will also be available for free on PlayStation Plus from December 7-31.


“Godfall has been an amazing ride so far,” said Daniel Nordlander, Game Director at Counterplay Games. “This is such a labor of love for the dev team, and we’re excited to be opening up the experience to even more players through the Challenger Edition and promotions with our partners at Epic and PlayStation. Whether you’re just joining the community or have been with us from the start, Godfall is currently the best it’s ever been.”

Check out the Epic Games Store blog announcement here, and see what the Challenger Edition has to offer below:


Instantly Boost Your Player Level to Max Level

● All players have the option to immediately jump to Player Level 50, which comes with a plethora of skill points and a spread of deadly weapons for your Valorplates.

Dive Straight Into the Endgame

● Use your max level Valorplate to challenge Godfall’s three endgame modes: Lightbringer, Dreamstones, and the Ascended Tower of Trials.

○ Lightbringer: A battle against an all-consuming darkness that threatens to snuff out all light from the realms of Aperion. Players willing to persevere through selected curses will receive increasingly greater rewards – and face ever more challenging hordes until the blighted Heart of Darkness is banished in an epic final battle.

○ Dreamstones: Engage in randomized encounters by reliving the memories of Orin and gain unique rewards each time you play. The curses bestowed on the aptly named Cursed Loot tier can be lifted by completing challenges in Dreamstones and Ascended Tower of Trials.

○ Ascended Tower of Trials: Put your skills to the test in an ever more challenging climb to the top of the tower gaining boons and facing fierce bosses along the way in the pursuit of juicy loot drops.

Obtain and Customize Legendary Loot

● Master five unique weapon classes and forge weapon upgrades and enchantments.

Perfect Your Build

● Combine a diverse array of skills and gear to become the ultimate Exalted Knight.

Play With Your Fellow Valorians

● Godfall: Challenger Edition’s endgame matchmaking and co-op is compatible with all editions of Godfall and supports cross-gen play on PlayStation 4 and 5.

Upgrade to the Deluxe Edition to Experience the Epic Godfall Campaign

● Want to experience the enhanced story campaign of Godfall: Challenger Edition players can purchase the Deluxe Edition at any time for $44.99, gaining access to both the Godfall and Fire & Darkness campaigns, as well as a slew of weapons, items, and unlockable cosmetics.

*New Boss Rewards

● All existing Godfall players will receive The Challenger update for free, which adds new cosmetics for defeating the campaign bosses, as well as the ability to replay story missions.

*Quest System Introduces New Challenges and Legendary Rewards
