Epic Games and Counterplay Games have released the introductory cinematic for PS5 console exclusive Godfall. This set up shows how the story came to be with the Valorian Knight Macros playing the Order until war breaks out, and his army is victorious. The player’s character is one of the Valorian Knights that opposed Macros, and these knights are fighting to save their civilisation and stop Macros from ascending to a god like status.
Here is the cinematic’s description:
“If I’d left well enough alone, Macros would still be bullying rivals and battling enemies. Instead, he’s on the brink of godhood and our civilization lies in ruins. But Macros forgets what he said to me that day: Gods belong in the sky.”
Epic Games and Counterplay Games have also confirmed that Godfall is now available to digitally pre-order Godfall for PS5 on the PlayStation Store. These editions are the same as the ones that appeared earlier on the Epic Games Store. Those three editions are the Standard Edition, the Digital Deluxe Edition, and the Ascended Edition.

Set in an high fantasy world, there are five realms of Apeiron to venture through in Godfall and, which have been split between Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and Spirit. Through the game, there’s definitely been some influence and crossover from looter shooters and action RPGs, with a main goal being to find loot and continually upgrade your character build. However, that will not be the only factor in how well you do in battle. There’s also plenty of Dark Souls to see in the combat, with tense battles that require positioning and timing to succeed, though it emphasises offence over defence. If you dominate the combat space, you’ll be much more likely to succeed.
