Godfall review

Article's cover

If you’re tired of shooting baddies for your loot then Godfall offers a more fantasy-based alternative. Don your epic Vaporplate armor, wield mighty weapons and magic and prepare to save the world by fighting epic bosses.

Godfall Will Pave the Way for Next-Gen Looters

One of the very first PlayStation 5 games to be revealed, Godfall is one of the most hotly anticipated titles of late 2020. It takes a page out of Destiny’s looter book and adds a high dose of slasher action combat and replaces the sci-fi space setting with fantastic sword and sorcery. While information about Godfall is quite scarce, we’ve seen enough from trailers to derive an inkling of what to expect.

Brandish your coolest-looking armor and let’s plunge head-first into what we know so far about Godfall.

A Whole New World

Godfall’s hack-and-slashing is set in a world called Aperion where you take on the role of one of the last epic warriors of the Knight’s Order. This brave new world is on the cusp of a civilization-ending catastrophe and only you can stop it from happening. As stated by creative director, Keith Lee, Godfall draws inspiration from some of the most critically acclaimed authors, including Asimov and Sanderson. The world of Godfall is divided into five elements, Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Spirit. As such the game’s setting is meant to be a more serious fantasy universe with powerful warriors who wear epic armor and wield powerful weapons and magic.

The Grind for Power

The most eye-catching part of Godfall’s limited footage is, of course, the extravagant armor. Each piece of armor looks so unnecessarily over the top, it would make Monster Hunter blush. Counterplay, Godfall’s developer, has explained that these sets of armor are calle Vaporplates. This being an RPG at heart, you’ll have to explore the far reaches of Aperion and collect them by downing epic bosses.

The Art of Badassery

These Vaporplates naturally won’t be just for looks. Lee has explained they play a key role in Godfall’s combat systems. The upcoming title is being dubbed a “looter-slasher”, which harks back to looter-shooters like Destiny 2 and The Division 2. You wouldn’t be off by thinking these games were the main inspiration for Godfall. Counterplay has also stated that games like Dark Souls, Sekiro and God of War have played a role in shaping Godfall’s combat.
