Godfall is an upcoming game that will be releasing on PlayStation 5 and PC. This will be a looter-slasher from Counterplay Games which have gathered a lot of buzz around itself. The audience reaction of the game was pretty good as the game had great character designs, trailer, and environment. This been on PlayStation 5 is good enough to see what’s in store for us in the game. The story of the game has been revealed which was said by Godfall creative director Keith Lee in an interview with PlayStation Lifestyle. He talked about the inspiration behind that made world of Godfall and how the story fits together. Godfall was inspired by novel series like The Stormlight Archive and Isaac Asimov’s Foundation franchise.
The premises of the game was revealed by Lee in the interview in which he said that the world are split up into the realms of Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Spirit. Players will be playing as one of the last remaining Knight’s Order who intent on stop the apocalypse and preserving the last vestiges of the world they live in. Furthermore, during an interview with GamesRadar, he also said that Godfall is a co-op looter-slasher experience which is set in a very serious and all new fantasy world that is filled with heroic knights and ancient magic. There are going to be multiple weapons and special suits that are called Valorplates which can be found throughout the disparate worlds, offering armor that can be found and equipped. Players can have different mods in them which will imbue the player with certain abilities or cast offensive spells.
As for the gameplay, it is easy to understand as in this game, players will be able to take control of a warrior who is so skilled that they can multiple weapons. Its been an action RPG game, there are numerous weapon types like swords, dual blades, polearms, Warhammer, and greatswords. The combat against enemies will be tough and players will have to learn their patterns otherwise it will be extremely tough. Moreover, players will have the ability to build up their character’s abilities as time passes. If you like to loot a lot then this is a game for you as it will be like Diablo or Borderlands in which you the players are given a lot of new gear constantly. It will be up to the players on how they will create their ideal character and weapons
Furthermore, there will be no microtransactions which mean players will have go complete the game in order to unlock the skins and other things. As said previously, there are many weapon types in the game each of which will be different in their own right. There are Longsword, Dual Blades, Polearm, Two-Handed Warhammer, Two-handed Greatsword, Shield, Valorplate and here is a detailed description of all of the weapons in Godfall:
• Dual Blades
These Blades are the fastest weapons in Godfall and is very effective against unarmoured and ‘soft’ enemies. Dual Blades don’t that much damage when compared to other weapons. It makes up for it with their speed and swiftness. There are heavy attacks which are called Blade Cyclone and there is an ability named Inner Focus that unleashes a lot of damage to numerous enemies in a short amount of time. Furthermore, there is a move called Mortal Coil, which turns these blades into a ‘pulling cable’ which will drags enemies towards the player.
Longswords are balanced weapons that do a great deal of damage with simple cooldowns without needing a lot of elaborate combo setups. This weapon will have different light attacks and a heavy attack finisher. The same thing can be said for its special abilities one of which is Spectral Flurry which is an uninterruptable attack that will do a lot of damage to a group of targets within its area of effect. The second one is the Spiral Technique which destroys enemies in a straight path with a powerful lunge. There is also a timing attack which when triggered will perform a Shield Uppercut on an opponent.
Shields are present in the game as well which will be good for those that prefer a defensive playstyle. It will allow you to block attacks as well as parry them if you time it right. If this parry is performed, the counterattack will activate as the enemy is caught off guard which will be dealing bonus damage. Moreover, players will able to through the shield which upon hitting enemies, or anything will bounce back to them. This can be done by pressing the shield button at the right time and players perform a Wave Attack which will knock adversaries backward. By double-tapping the shield button to freeze your enemies which sounds extremely amazing.
During an interview, the game’s director, Keith Lee said that as the player will play the game they will be able to craft Valorplates with individual traits that will be active or passive. In order to create these, players will have to need Valorplate cores as players will travel through the worlds of Aperion and there are a total of 12 Valorplates to collect, including the one players will get at the start. It will require many other resources, these resources will be dropped from enemies or situations you encounter, so get ready to go hunting.
There are different types of Valorplates like Balanced (hybrid) Valorplates to Specialised Valorplates and then Exotic Valorplates. Each of these will have a different function which includes improving the DPS output of a character or making them tanker for co-op purposes. Players will be able to determine what Archon ability players want. Archon is a charged version of players’ character which upon using will unleash a certain amount of damage to any enemy.
Godfall will have multiplayer, you will be able to play with random people as well as with your friends. Each party will have three people, however, and this means that if players want to play Godfall with a group of friends, they will have to keep it small. There is a confirmation on whether PS5 and PC players will be able to play together. But this is a thing which will depend on Sony as in the past they have allowed for some games to have cross-platform play.

The developers, Counterplay Games that are making the game aren’t new to it video game development. On their website, they say that the people that have worked on games like Ratchet & Clank series, Titanfall 2, God of War, Destiny 2, Diablo 3, Star Wars Battlefront, Overwatch, many others. This shows us that these developers are quite experienced in what they do and because of this there is high hope for Godfall.
