The latest Greedfall trailer is out and it’s a treat for those most interested in gameplay. Spiders Studio showcases everything players can expect including character creation, attributes, skills, talents, crafting, custom gear, and much more.
Those more interested in the combat system will be pleased to hear that it can be approached “in your own way”. Rather than being locked into a specific role or required to use certain weapons, players have more freedom of choice. “Subdue foes with heavy weapons, use your rapier to parry and riposte with flair, or control the battlefield using traps and magic.” For those keener on tactical combat, there is a pause menu that allows players to choose each move strategically.
Along the way, players will meet and recruit party members. The video, however, reminds players that while they will follow into battle, “they are their own people with their own hopes, goals, and motives. Say or do the wrong thing and their loyalty could waver, or even turn entirely.”
Lastly, no open-world RPG is complete without decisions affecting the game world. Players are free to pursue the type of game they most want. “Don the armor of an enemy faction to pose as one of their own or use your diplomatic talents to influence the powerful elite” to name but two. The goal is to provide players with every opportunity to be who they most want to be.
Greedfall is due out on September 10th for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. Preorders are already open for all platforms.
