GreedFall: Gold Edition, the enhanced version of the game for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will launch tomorrow, June 30th. The new version runs at 4K UHD resolution with enhanced performance and fast loading thanks to the console SSDs, plus The De Vespe Conspiracy, a brand new expansion. There will be a free upgrade if you already own the game.
Greedfall was released in late 2019 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One offering players a chance to explore a new land in the search for a cure of a plague that was ravaging their homeland. In Greedfall players have to navigate relationships between different political factions including colonising powers and the native inhabitants.
We gave the original version of the game 7/10 in our review. “Greedfall has an ambitious story, but it’s not backed up by the clearly repeated environments, simple combat and dull abilities that take ages to unlock,” said Gareth. “However, seasoned RPG players might well be able able to look past those flaws in favour of the interesting, well written stories about political manoeuvres and oppression that make up the bulk of the quests in this pretty dark, deep world.”
Spiders, the developer of Greedfall, has not rested on its laurels. In July, the company revealed for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. In Steelrising, you play as Aegis, the robotic bodyguard of Queen Marie-Antoinette, ordered to find your creator and put and end to the tyranny of King Louis XVI and the robot army he is using to crack down on the French Revolution.
The Paris depicted in the game includes many monuments and famous locations, including those that no longer exist, including the Grand Chatelet and the Tour du Temple. Aegis has weapons built into her body, with items found while exploring letting you make her more powerful, more durable, or more mobile. There’s seven families of weapons, which could be built into her arms, alchemical rifles for long range, or more powerful and forceful options as well.
A release date for Steelrising is yet to be confirmed.
