Greedfall is an upcoming action role-playing video game, developed by Spiders and published by Focus Home Interactive. The game is set in 17th century-styled fantasy setting.
An island paradise has been discovered by colonial forces from several distinct nations from fictional lands, but with magic and monsters. You play as a neutral Human who recently arrived at the island, able to ally yourself with either the native Elves who inhabit the land, or any of the foreign nations competing to conquer and colonize the “new” land.
Things get complicated when the colonists arrive. Our protagonist ends up right in the middle of the conflict between the natives and the colonial forces. Now he must find a way to survive on the island. In order to do so, he will need to make various choices that will have consequences in the future.
In the game, you alongside other settlers, mercenaries, and treasure hunters explore a remote island where the locals, who are fighting off invading settlers, are protected by supernatural beings. GreedFall is about combat, but it’s also about diplomacy, deception, and stealth. Your actions, from seemingly trivial choices to the most important political decisions, will influence and affect its course as well as the relationship between the different factions established on the island.
“GreedFall is an RPG at its core: It follows our experience in building intricate worlds filled with mysteries to discover. By weaving deep character interactions, and offering players multiple options and paths to accomplish quests and objectives (you can explore combat, diplomacy, deception or stealth), this is going to be our biggest game yet! The island of GreedFall is a living, ever-evolving world. Your actions, from seemingly trivial choices to the most important political decisions, will influence and affect its course as well as the relationship between the different factions established on the island.”
GreedFall is expected to release in 2018 for PS4.
