Focus Home and Spiders announce new RPG Greedfall, set in magical 17th century
Ok, you have my attention
Spiders and Focus Home Interactive announced a new IP today with their new RPG Greedfall. It's set on a mystical island in the 17th century strewn with settlers, locals, and deals with the battles that ensue therein.
With a strong focus on its core RPG identity, GreedFall follows Spiders' experience in building intricate worlds filled with mysteries to discover, weaving deep character interactions, and offering players great freedom to achieve quests and objectives in a multitude of different ways – through combat of course, but also through diplomacy, deception or stealth. The island of GreedFall is a living, ever-evolving world. Your actions, from seemingly trivial choices to the most important political decisions, will influence and affect its course as well as the relationship between the different factions established on the island.
Jehanne Rousseau, the CEO of Spiders, was excited about the announcement and commented by saying
"With GreedFall, Spiders is happy to renew its collaboration with Focus Home Interactive, our publisher for many years. The relationship of trust and transparency we have been developing together makes us particularly confident about the creation of this new project, more ambitious than all our past productions. Few publishers have the ability to support totally distinctive games like GreedFall and this secures us in our belief that we will manage with Focus Home Interactive to make this experience in a brand new universe both unique and unforgettable",
Not to be outdone, Cedric Lagarrigue of Focus Home also spoke on the new IP and what they expect out of it.
"We are happy to once again support the studio, directed by Jehanne Rousseau, in a new collaboration. If Spiders’ titles could have divided gamers in the past, they are gathering a bigger and bigger audience that enjoys the studios approach to the role-playing genre, allowing Spiders to improve game after game. Through this new collaboration, the studio will have more means to fully achieve its ambition. Thanks to its theme, its universe and its promise, Spiders’ GreedFall will be a game to closely follow, for RPG lovers"
Only a target release window of 2018 was announced so far, but more information was promised to be revealed within the next few weeks or month. For now, the game is set to launch on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. What do you think of Greedfall so far? Let us know below underneath the pretty screen shots.
