Greedfall RPG Announced by Focus Home Interactive

Focus Home Interactive, the company that published Farming Simulator 17, Seasons After Fall, and Vampyre, are once again in collaboration with developer Spiders Games, the studio responsible for The Technomancer and Mars: War Logs.

Together, they have officially announced another brand new title, GreedFall. The game will come out on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2018.

According to the press release, GreedFall is a RPG set in the 17th century “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, manifestation of the island’s earthly magic.”

The game will feature multiple methods of getting missions done, with combat, diplomacy, deception, or stealth. Your actions, according to Focus Home, “will influence and affect [the world’s evolution] course as well as the relationship between the different factions established on the island.”

Though both companies are fairly excited to continue their collaboration with the new game, I’m hesitant to get excited. Spiders Games has a reputation for wrapping mediocre writing with great ideas and brilliant worlds. However, practice makes perfect, and GreedFall looks like it’s worth being given a chance.
