The footage was anonymously posted on Reddit by user YeaQuarterDongIng, who claims the footage embedded below is from an internal trailer used in early 2019.
Considering the gameplay is said to be almost a year old, it’s very likely the footage shown is running on a PC set to presumed target specs of next-gen consoles, and not actual PS5 hardware.
Update: The official Godfall Twitter account has offered the following comment on the trailer: “We can confirm that the circulating trailer is year-old PC footage used as part of an internal presentation. We are energized by your excitement and look forward to showing you just how far this game has come. Stay tuned for a more detailed look soon!”
Original story continues: Developed by Counterplay Games and set to be published by Gearbox, the fantasy “looter-slasher” became the first officially announced PlayStation 5 game when it was unveiled at The Game Awards in December.
It’s currently confirmed for release exclusively on PS5 and PC via the Epic Games Store during the 2020 holiday season. However, Counterplay’s website previously stated it was in development for “next-gen consoles,” suggesting an Xbox Series X could also be on the cards.
The Godfall development team is comprised of around 75 people with experience working on the Ratchet & Clank series, God of War, Destiny 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Diablo III, Gears 5, Star Wars Battlefront, Titanfall 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Evolve, Halo 5, Battlefield 3, BioShock Infinite, Call of Duty, Injustice 2 and Overwatch.
“Our goal with Godfall is to reforge fantasy ARPG-style loot progression and third-person melee combat into a whole new genre: The Looter-Slasher,” he said.
“Namely, our game is uniquely one-part gear driven and one-part player-skill driven. Godfall retains the desire for offense-oriented, mastery-driven combat, rewarding you with head-turning, powerful loot that then inspires your next set of character builds.”
Players will be able to take on “satisfying one-against-many enemy encounters along with challenging head-to-head boss fights” individually or with up to two other players.
“Godfall’s designed from the ground up with co-op in mind,” Lee said. “You can play the entire game in solo, duo or trio. Your enemies will respond dynamically, mutating their behavior and attack patterns based on your group size. Our goal for co-op is stronger together, and fun for all.”
