Inside Xbox is starting off GamesCom with a bang, and Greedfall is sweet surprise in the showcase. Not on the list shown before the segments began, we see a well narrated trailer explaining just what Greedfall is.
Greedfall is an action RPG that reminds me of Mass Effect. The trailer went well more in depth with the companions than we have seen in any of the previous footage. You play as a diplomat, not a fighter, traveling to the island of Teer Fradee. This is a world filled with magic and fantasy with a bit of colonial theme thrown in. These are themes you will explore heavily from what the trailer shows, with plenty of issues between the natives and new colonists.
The trailer goes into detail of your party, where you can choose between different people you meet to progress in the game. Kurt is your master of arms, a close range fighter who will definitely come of use when things get hairy. Aphra is your distance specialist, with ranged weapons and explosives to back you up. The character I am most interested in is Siora, a royal native of the land who is able to use the magic of this world.
There is your usual RPG elements such as different equipment for your party, dialogue, and the suchlike. Greedfall however introduces a very intriguing feature. Depending on the party members, if you side with a character in a specific mission they may respond harshly or even interrupt you. Siora for instance will be upset if you help someone who wants to cause hurt her people. The combinations of characters and reactions just sound amazing.
Greedfall is launching very soon on September 10th, 2019. You can pre-order both physically and digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If you pre-order now you will receive the Adventurer’s Gear DLC pack.
