Godfall: Challenger Edition is part of December 2021’s PS Plus, but what is it?

The thing many people are wondering is… what is Godfall: Challenger Edition? It’s not the full version of the game that released alongside the PS5, but rather a cut down release that focusses on three modes: Lightbringer, Dreamstones, and the Ascended Tower of Trials. All three modes are endgame-level content, but Challenger Edition will automatically give you weapons and skill points to use. It will also be compatible with the upgraded versions of Godfall from last year, in a play to expand the game’s player base and try to bring in some more players.

The Gearbox-published Godfall was one of the very first PlayStation 5 games to be announced and a launch title for the new generation platform last year. In the summer, the game was then ported back to the PlayStation 4. Sadly, Godfall didn’t do too much to impress us at launch. While it had some interesting ideas in its approach to combat, the dull structure and heavy recycling of content made it a tough game to slog through. At the time we wrote:

“It takes a while for Godfall’s combat to truly open up and when it does, you’ll revel in its beefy ballet of well-timed blows and counters. That said, it’s hard to ignore the flimsy scaffolding that keeps this PS5 launch title standing, the lack of matchmaking, and a loot system you’ll quickly lose interest in. Although still great fun in short bursts, this isn’t the rousing next-gen RPG experience you’ve been searching for.”

Along with those games the three PlayStation VR games from last month will remain as free PS Plus games until 3rd January, they are:

The PlayStation Plus games for November are still available and they are Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning for PlayStation 4, First Class Trouble and Knockout City on both PS4 and with a PS5 version, plus three bonus PSVR games.

  1. So it’s official now, and that Godfall “challenger edition” is basically just a demo of the end of the game with an option to pay to upgrade to the full game.

    Not impressed by that.

  2. Yep it’s confirmed, Godfall is just the endgame content, not the main campaign, you’ll have to buy it. So Sony is giving us a DLC without a game, in sort.

  3. So our monthly free PS5 game is now a glorified demo. Slippery slope… very disappointing.
