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."
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 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.
