Godfall Gameplay

The setting of Godfall is high fantasy; it's universe splits into the realms of Earth, Water, Air, Spirit and Fire. Players choose one from the last exalted Knight's Order to prevent a major apocalyptic event. There are three primary character classes to choose from, and they can be customized with various equipment parts.

The game has both single-player and cooperative modes. The multiplayer allows to gather up to four people in a party to explore the world and the storyline. The number of players in a group directly affects the amount of loot and its quality. The chosen difficulty of the game also affects the loot and the abilities of the foes.

Various armour pieces and weapons can have different quality and affect the abilities of the characters. Augments and Valorplates, which represent armour sets, grant massive bonuses to the characters and change the gameplay for each class in many ways. For example, there are flaming swords to burn your enemies, and that may change the player's approach to the combat.

Godfall is a third-person slasher, and it focuses mostly on melee combat. It has skill-based offensive gameplay where every hit matter and all the loot you collect brings a meaningful impact to the playstyle and overall experience. However, there are a few ranged attacks available to the players, but most of the time you need to swap between two melee weapons, which can be enchanted with different spells and elements.

The game brings a unique graphical style with high-resolution textures, and the visual style looks like a mix of Avengers and God of War. The PC version allows to customize the graphics and resolution, and that way, the game is more accessible for a more significant number of gamers. The game also provides "seamless" "loading and improved haptics to enhance the experience even further.

Godfall is a cross-platform project, and it supports both controller and keyboard and mouse kit to control your character. There are various customization options to change the controls for both PC and Playstation users; however, the game offers default settings, which are convenient to use to learn the game.

Godfall is a unique combination of high fantasy and hack-and-slash loot-based game, and it's suitable both for hardcore and casual gamers. It features various difficulty levels and a possibility to play with friends in a cooperative mode, and distribution platforms allow to find strangers to join their games and explore the massive universe together.
