Focus Interactive Shows Off The E3 Story Trailer For GreedFall

by Sage Ashford

Focus Interactive and developer Spiders have released a new trailer for their upcoming RPG GreedFall, just in time for E3.  GreedFall is set in an alternate version of the 17th century, and features a group of explorers traveling to a distant land in search of riches…and a cure to a disease ravaging their Old World.

From the homepage:

The Old World is dying. The continent is polluted, overpopulated, and plagued by a deadly, incurable disease. Its weary population grows desperate.

But there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon – an Island, remote and hidden, has been discovered. Teer Fradee… a land spared by the Malichor plague, a haven of life, wild and untampered by mankind. It is the promise of riches, but also represents the best hope for mankind to find a cure to the Malichor.

You are cruising with the Congregation of Merchants aboard a Nautes’ ship sailing to Teer Fradee. Your cousin, Constantin d’Orsay, is set to become the governor of one of the Congregation’s newest colony, New Serene. When the ship finally moors to the dock of the port town, you will begin your exploration of the promised land, on an arduous quest to find a cure to the Malichor on one hand, and playing a risky, large-scale diplomatic game on the other, with both the nations and factions colonizing the island, and the mysterious natives who seems to be magically connected to their environment.

GreedFall is a classic-style third person, party-based RPG, starting with the ability to completely customize the look of the lead character. It contains classless progression systems and the ability to solve conflict both violently and through diplomacy, as you navigate between the different factions that come to the land of Teer Fradee…and with the natives of the land as well.  The game’s webpage teases the ability to both build or destroy alignments, and also mentions the possibility of romance.

GreedFall launches this September for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
