Developed by Counterplay Games, the fantasy “looter-slasher” became the first officially announced PlayStation 5 game when it was unveiled at The Game Awards in December.
Pitchford wrote on Wednesday: “Attention fellow game lovers, peers and enthusiasts: Behold the first Playstation 5 game! Hot off the presses, this is the first to manufacture next gen retail game in the world. Congratulations to Counterplay Games and the team here at Gearbox Publishing!”
It was recently confirmed that Godfall will require an internet connection to play, despite the game being fully playable without other players. As seen in Pitchford’s images, the game’s box even features a “no offline mode” badge.
Counterplay has also labelled speculation the game will run at 4K native at 120fps incorrect.
“Performance QA and optimization is often the last step of development ahead of launch and that tuning is ongoing for us,” it said. “We’ll share real numbers when that work concludes.”
Selected Japanese YouTube content creators live streamed PS5 gameplay this month – including Godfall – and you can watch all the videos on this page.
The PlayStation 5 release date is November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia and South Korea. The rest of the world will get the console a week later on November 19.
