Godfall update 2.1.17 is chock full of fixes

The team over at Counterplay Games have released a new update for their next-gen looter slasher, Godfall. Patch 2.1.17 is now available to download on PS5 and PC – you’ll need to install this update in order to play as Godfall requires an online connection.

There are no major highlights in version 2.1.17 though Counterplay are working to fix hefty list of issues flagged by the Godfall community in the days following its launch.

We recently reviewed Godfall for PS5, scoring the launch title an average 5 out of 10. There are some interesting combat mechanics at work though a scarcity of interesting content, strung together in such a repetitive manner.

The lack of multiplayer matchmaking doesn’t help though hopefully Counterplay have plans to address this and other concerns in future. For now, here are the latest patch notes:
