GreedFall 2 is set three years before the events of the first game, and switches to a new character. You’ll play as a native of Teer Fradee who’s been taken to the coloniser continent of Gacane against your will. This world is still being ravaged by the Malichor plague, while there’s plenty of different scheming factions at play as well. You’ll have to navigate this using diplomacy, cunnig and combat to try and regain your freedom and destiny.

“We are very excited to reveal GreedFall 2 to everyone, the new game from Spiders,” said Alain Falc, CEO of Nacon. “Many fans across the world were begging for this sequel, and we are delighted to be publishing this new game that these fans are sure to love. We also hope it will appeal to new players and all fans of role-playing games, great stories, action and fantasy.”

The surprising part of this announcement is that Spiders are still hard at work on Steelrising, though they are coming close to the launch of that game, currently pegged for September this year.

“While we were working on Steelrising, our love of the GreedFall universe never faded, and so we are thrilled to be returning to it,” said Jehanne Rousseau, Founder and Director of Spiders development studio. “In this new chapter, players will explore the old continent with its bigger and more diverse environments. They will meet new companions and new factions, and I hope they will have unforgettable adventures.”

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.”
