“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 an action RPG that utilizes high-impact third-person melee combat to engage players as they hunt for loot, don legendary armor sets, and pursue vicious enemies. As players dodge and slash their way through the world in Godfall, enemies, bosses, and quests will reward fans with loot as they are vanquished. Those bosses and enemies are designed with co-op in mind, with special abilities that counter multiple combatants attacking from different angles.
“We’re innovating with Godfall to provide a fresh take on third-person action combat by rewarding offensive gameplay and making every hit matter,” commented Keith Lee, creative director of Godfall and CEO of Counterplay Games. “We also want to feed into that hunger for the next best piece in your build, so we plan to provide plenty of loot to players and making sure that it has meaningful impact to gameplay and playstyles.”
