Focus Home Interactive and Spiders Reveal New RPG: GreedFall
GreedFall is the latest RPG from Spiders, currently in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Revealed at "le What's Next de Focus" event last week, GreedFall today unveils a first teaser trailer, hinting at the 17th century setting of the game and its magic-embedded ambiance. As showcased in this video, GreedFall aims for a very unique visual identity, inspired by Baroque art from 17th century Europe, depicting grandiose scenery in muted warm colors and dark undertones.
Explore a fresh new world as you set foot―alongside many other settlers, mercenaries, and treasure hunters―on a remote island seeping with magic, rumored to be filled with riches and 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―manifestations of the island's earthly magic.
With a strong focus on its core RPG identity, GreedFall follows Spiders' experience in building intricate worlds filled with mysteries to discover, weaving deep character interactions, and offering players great freedom to achieve quests and objectives in a multitude of different ways―through combat of course, but also through diplomacy, deception, or 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.
"With GreedFall, Spiders is happy to renew its collaboration with Focus Home Interactive, our publisher for many years. The relationship of trust and transparency we have been developing together makes us particularly confident about the creation of this new project, more ambitious than all our past productions. Few publishers have the ability to support totally distinctive games like GreedFall and this secures us in our belief that we will manage with Focus Home Interactive to make this experience in a brand new universe both unique and unforgettable", says Jehanne Rousseau, President of Spiders.
"We are happy to once again support the studio presided by Jehanne Rousseau through a new collaboration. If Spiders' titles could have divided gamers in the past, they are gathering a bigger and bigger audience that enjoys the studio's approach to the role-playing genre, allowing Spiders to improve game after game. Through this new collaboration, the studio will have more means to fully achieve its ambition. Thanks to its theme, its universe, and its promise, Spiders' GreedFall will be a game to follow closely for RPG lovers", says Cédric Lagarrigue, President of Focus Home Interactive.
GreedFall is planned for release in 2018. We will reveal more about the game in the weeks and months to come.
so why does it matter if they make the next one or not? it's like people being excited about rare making a new perfect dark when the people who made perfect dark 1 on the N64 are long gone. (17 minutes ago)
and the mention of brands being popular is ironic seeing as that's all dev studio's are. valve today is nothing like valve when half life was being made. they've lost all of their key staff. (18 minutes ago)
tbh as long as good developers are making good games i don't care what franchise people want to attach to them. hell, most devs would probably do a better job at half life than valve at this point. (20 minutes ago)
and as for outsourceing half life, wasn't that what valve were going to do anyway. wasn't episode 4 (what happened to 3?) being developed by arkane? (21 minutes ago)
@nostradamus: you actually have a point for a change. half life would actually need decent characters for naughty dog to be able to do anything with it. it may as well be a reboot. (27 minutes ago)
naughty "we make movies"dog taking a mute protagonist fps. sure, jan. (4 Hours ago)
Not that I think the character designs are great.. I agree that it's not its strong suite. (5 Hours ago)
