January 21, 2020 Publisher Gearbox has confirmed that the leaked Godfall gameplay is real, and from a year-old PC build of the game.
Gameplay has leaked of Gearbox’s new “looter-slasher”, Godfall. The footage, which emerged on Reddit, is our first proper look at the game, and the publisher has now confirmed that the footage is real.
“We can confirm that the circulating trailer is year-old PC footage used as part of an internal presentation,” the official Godfall Twitter posted today. “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!”
The video shows us some of the hack-and-slash game’s melee combat and armoured enemies, as well as its beautiful visuals. The Redditor who leaked the footage says it originates from an unreleased trailer they have acquired. The trailer was used internally and is from “early 2019”, according to the user, as Gearbox has now confirmed. Godfall was revealed at last year’s Game Awards, described as a fantasy-action RPG with a focus on third-person combat.
You’ll equip striking legendary armour and take on vicious enemies and challenging missions in your hunt for “head-turning” loot, which you’ll get by defeating bosses and their minions. You can play the whole game by yourself or in two- or three-player co-op. For more on the Counterplay-developed title, check out the first official Godfall trailer.
We don’t yet know when the Godfall release date will land, but we do know it’s coming to PC (via the Epic Store) and PlayStation 5 in Holiday 2020.
