Focus Home Interactive have revealed the launch trailer for their upcoming game GreedFall. More from the company themselves below:
The mysterious and magical island of Teer Fradee looms on the horizon, a beacon of hope for your disease-ridden homeland. Uneasy relationships simmer between the island’s many factions, both settler and native, as you arrive as a diplomat and seeker of a cure.
Freedom and the power to choose both lie at the heart of GreedFall. Shape your story from character creation to conclusion, carving your path through impactful decisions and your choices in talents, skills and attributes. Choose which companions to bring on your journey, carefully considering their talents and loyalties, while crafting equipment for your entire party to look and play the way you want. Befriend, betray, and make the toughest choices as you shape your destiny and the island’s.
This comes after the recent reveal of thirteen minutes of gameplay guided by the developers themselves over at IGN.
With a setting that looks like it came right out of a painting, GreedFall is looking like a solid experience. Despite being from Spiders Studio, a company which hasn’t been known for its quality gaming experiences up to now, this looks like it’s improved on every single flaw those games have had in the past. The graphics and world design are gorgeous and the battle system looks like it has some weight to it. Still, it seems like GreedFall has gotten a lot more press than their games have in the past, and with good reason.
With BioWare’s recent Anthem not only being very little like the games their fans love them for, but also being…well, bad…there’s a giant hole in the schedule this year. There’s no major Western RPG on the docket for the year. Every year since this generation began we’ve had something: Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Witcher 3, The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine, 2017 and 2018 had the Assassin’s Creed games step it up a notch and go full blown RPG for fans. But with Cyberpunk a year away, BioWare having pushed Dragon Age back to redo it, and Ubisoft taking a year off with the AC titles, there’s a real hole in what’s available for fans. Focus Home and Spiders have a real opportunity here to put themselves on the map, taking the next step to become relevant to the gaming world as a whole. Can they succeed? We’ll know in four days.
GreedFall launches on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on September 6th.
