Spiders Games, creator of RPG titles The Technomancer, Mars: War Logs and Bound By Flame, are once more, teaming up with Focus Home Interactive to bring a new Colonial RPG to Xbox One. GreedFall will be set in the 17th Century and was teased in Focus Home Interactive’s recent “le What’s Next de Focus” event.
GreedFall is looking like it will lean heavily towards magical content, inspired by the Baroque art form from 17th Century Europe, depicting grandiose scenery in muted, warm colours, but with dark undertones.
Set foot in a fresh new world, alongside many other settlers, mercenaries and treasure hunters. This remote island seeps with magic and is rumoured to be dripping with riches and contain a multitude of lost secrets. A grand journey filled with mystery follows, as you find yourself in the middle of ever-increasing tensions between the invading settlers and the locals, protected by supernatural beings. These beings are a manifestation of the island’s earthly magic and as the trailer below shows, can be very protective.
GreedFall will draw on Spiders Games’ experience in building complicated RPG worlds. Discover mysteries and weave deep character interactions offering players greater freedom to achieve quests and objectives in a multitude of different ways. Choose the combat option, or try your hand at diplomacy, deception or even stealth. The island of GreedFall is a living, ever-evolving world. Your actions, from seemingly trivial choices to the most important political decisions, will influence and affect its course as well as the relationship between the different factions established on the island.
You’re going to have to content yourself with trailers for a while yet, with GreedFall, at the minute though. The game isn’t scheduled for an Xobx console release until 2018 and we expect Focus Home Interactive and Spiders will be busy fine-tuning the storylines and creating trailers for your enjoyment, right up until the launch date.
