Godfall (PS5) - Good Combat Means It's Not Godawful | Push Square

Liam Croft: "Since earning the title of the first-ever game to be announced for PlayStation 5 last year, it feels like Godfall has been stuck between a rock and a hard place. From Counterplay Games, a studio whose previous output includes just a single free-to-play PC experience named Duelyst, expectations it was probably never going to meet were set. That's what a hot spot at The Game Awards does to you despite how unfair it may be on the developer. But even when those assumptions of quality are removed from the conversation, Godfall is not a good game."

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

Popsicle732d ago (Edited 732d 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.

smashman98732d ago

This is 100 percent on Sony for allowing this

VenomUK732d 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.

monkey602731d 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.

thejigisup732d 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.

Crazyglues732d 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..!

CaptainHenry916732d ago

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

porkChop732d 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.

SoonDeadByOldAge732d 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.

deleted732d 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!?

waderae732d ago

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

garos82732d ago

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

Eidolon732d 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.

Kaii733d ago

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

masterfox733d 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.

Popsicle732d ago (Edited 732d 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.

bloop732d ago

Hear hear. Fuck this shit.

siLENTEsKI732d ago

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

1Victor732d ago

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

outsider1624732d ago

Exactly this!!!!! Thankyou.

Abear21732d ago

Agreed, this seems like Sony trying out new “business models” to boost sales for devs on subscribers, very not cool. Basically a glorified Demo is this months flagship offering, wtf.
Where’s the PR depts head at? Who’s idea was this BS? And in December? Laughable.

garos82732d ago

exactly what popsicle said, i would go a step further and add : dont even give this glorified demo the time of day. screw them and screw gearbox/sony for this awful "christmas gift"

You're just the kind of gullible fool they're hoping for.
