At Le What’s Next De FocusHome developer Spider released a teaser trailer for their upcoming game GreedFall.
GreedFall is a fantasy RPG set in the 17th century. Mercenaries, treasure hunters and settlers flock to a recently discovered magical island. Players will find themselves embarking on a “grand journey filled with mystery” as settlers and the magically protected locals begin to clash.
Spider states that players will have “great freedom to achieve quests and objectives in a multitude of different ways ” such as combat, diplomacy, deception or stealth. They go on to say that choices will matter even “seemingly trivial choices” along with large political ones. These choices will then affect the relationships between the various factions of the island.
Gameplay details remain scarce. Taking Spider’s previous games, such as Technomancer and Bound by Flame, into consideration a few assumption can be made. The game will likely be an action RPG with the ability to specialize into certain skill trees. There will also likely be a dialogue system that is affected by previous choices and skills. Other details are less certain as Spider generally improves upon and changes gameplay focus from game to game.
GreedFall launches 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
