The Colonization-Focused RPG Launches on September 10, 2019
Greedfall is the new game from Spiders, the studio responsible for games such as The Technomancer and Bound by Flame. The game takes on the ambitious task of attempting to make the hot topic of colonization into an entertaining video game. I, for one, am extremely excited to check it out. The new trailer reveals the specific release date for Greedfall is September 10.
Greedfall takes place following the discovery of a previously unknown island, one abound in resources and beauty. Different, powerful nations compete to colonize the land, while also dealing with native Elves who are protected by supernatural beings. The players take on the role of a neutral human and can decide which faction to support.
It is probably wise to temper your expectations of Greedfall blowing your socks off. Spiders previous games tend to garner mixed to mediocre reviews. In fact, Andy Chalk of PC Gamer calls Spiders “one of the most consistently 6/10 studios in the business”.
The trailer focus primarily on combat sequences, although Spider says that stealth and diplomacy are also integral elements. According to the studio “Player freedom and choice are core to GreedFall, as your decisions will build friendships, break alliances, diffuse conflicts and shape the future of the island”.
