I want to stream this game but it does not seem effectively optimized for streaming on PC even at the lowest setting.


Godfall Developer Has Been Hit With Layoffs

Counterplay, the developer behind Gearbox Publishing's action role-playing game Godfall, has been hit with layoffs, based on the latest information.

Godfall had potential. I bought it on launch day along with Demon’s Souls and Miles on PS5. One of the biggest issues I had with this game was multiplayer was not convenient and the combat system would not allow you to cancel a string which limited the combo potential. I still have it on my hard drive but haven’t played in a couple years. Maybe I’ll check it out. As far as the layoffs go it’s to be expected at this point.


Godfall developer blog – March 17, 2022

Gearbox: "In our last blog we revealed Valorplate Shards – a brand new feature that lets you truly live out your ultimate Valorplate power fantasies!

Valorplate Shards are powerful new abilities that are thematically tied to each Valorplate, setting their playstyles apart in fresh and exciting ways.

We’ve been thrilled to see the excitement and discussion from the initial reveal which is why we’re happy to be back with a new blog post to cover some of the more nuanced mechanics behind Valorplate Shards."

Godfall’s PS Plus version asks you to pay to get access to the full game

Godfall released last year alongside the PlayStation 5 and it wasn’t well-received, with criticism placed on the amount of content in the game. Now though, it’s been added to the PS Plus December 2021 games lineup, which is usually good news for developers looking to up their player counts and get people interested in their game.

However, it will be joining PS Plus as Godfall: Challenger Edition, a brand new version of Godfall that only includes three activities that make up the endgame. With the Challenger Edition, you can only access the Lightbringer, Dreamstones, and Ascended Tower of Trials modes, with everything else that is available in the regular version of the game not accessible.

Absolute horse shit! Don't go including borderline demos as my PSPlus games please

Popsicle965d ago (Edited 965d ago )

Agreed. If a publisher or developer wants to release a demo then put it in the demo section of the Playstation store as a free download. Do no masquerade this as some sort of benefit to PS+ subscribers. I was excited about this until I heard about the "Challenger Edition."

On a side note, if I am starting the game with leveled up and with "end game" weapons and powers, why would I pay an additional fee to downgrade my characters and start from the beginning only to climb the ladder again. This makes little sense on so many levels.

smashman98965d ago

This is 100 percent on Sony for allowing this

VenomUK964d ago

@monkey602 It just goes to show what an ill-thought out move this is by Sony as so many people have responded to your comment and it has got a near-unanimous upvote - which for N4G is rare!

I know a lot of people are saying that the Godfall campaign isn't very good but I think it's better to include it and let the player decide.

monkey602964d ago

Absolutely agree Venom

No point pretending to be the good guy and "save me the time, by putting me straight into the good bits"
If that was an option it would be great, but this is clearly to drive sales of a game that underperformed.
Made worse by the fact the Epic store is making it free on PC too.

thejigisup965d ago

I agree. I am gonna add that the story of the game is trash, the in game hub is trash, the variety in the game is garbage. That being said, what is being offered is the best version of the game. It has everything you would need to enjoy everything good the game has to offer without inflating it with something that even people who love the game, myself included hate.

Crazyglues965d ago

Yeah this is some real serious horse shit.... and indeed not what we signed up for when we paid for Plus...

No one agreed to demo's instead of the SONY promised full free games... when we signed up for Plus..

What the hell SONY..!

CaptainHenry916965d ago

This is why I like gamepass. But I do have a feeling that Microsoft might go this route in the future

porkChop965d ago

Doubtful. If Game Pass was just a bunch of demos the service would lose all of its appeal. People wouldn't pay a subscription for glorified demos.

SoonDeadByOldAge964d ago

CaptH: I think MS will go the route of Forza Horizon 5 where they will have the complete game on Gamepass and sell the upgrade to the Delux edition. I’m totally fine with MS doing that.

deleted964d ago

Confirmed, it's free on Epic Game Store next week too. :\

So the PS5 game we’re paying for, at a now increased price, is actually a demo!?

waderae965d ago

no. if you are paying full price for this, you get the whole game.

garos82964d ago

ive spotted one of the lazy developers behind this garbage game! hows it going?

Eidolon964d ago

It's a straight shoot to end game, free if not for a small price compared to the full-game price, but offered for free with PS+. And no, it's not a demo, it's the end-game. lol. The game is actually trash regardless. Warframe is probably better, and it's free. of course lot of MTX.

Kaii966d ago

PS5 Game is actually the demo of a PS5 game, fascinating sales tac.
Scummy move on both Sony + Gearbox.
Merry Christmas =)

masterfox966d ago

Well that sucks, at least will be able to try it to some degree, and if is good I might purchase , but yeah I think this shouldn't be offered like a PS plus free game, the developer could it handle this offer totally separated from PS Plus and this would it be seen more positive.

Popsicle965d ago (Edited 965d ago )

If you purchase the full game based on this demo, it will only encourage Sony and developers to release more demos to PS+ subscribers instead of the full versions of games. This is a test to see if the demo model is feasible and I personally will not support it.

bloop965d ago

Hear hear. Fuck this shit.

siLENTEsKI965d ago

I wonder which moron downvoted you. Probably some Sony Marketing Rep browsing n4g.

@popsicle it’s time to sharpen the pitchforks and oil the torches.
