Spiders, the studio responsible for unique games like The Technomancer and Faery: Legends of Avalon, has announced a new game: Greedfall.
“Explore a fresh new world as you set foot – alongside many other settlers, mercenaries and treasure hunters – on a remote island seeping with magic, rumored to be filled with riches and lost secrets.
“A grand journey filled with mystery follows, as you find yourself in the middle of ever-increasing tensions between the invading settlers and the locals, protected by supernatural beings, manifestation of the island’s earthly magic.”
GreedFall is an RPG of magic, adventure, and 17th century weaponry. Your actions as a player change everything, and there will be multiple paths to solve every problem, combat, diplomacy, deception, or stealth. Even the most small choices can change the island you now call home, for better or for worse, as you make a name for yourself among the factions already established in this strange land.
Spiders describes the style of GreedFall as 17th century baroque, an art style known for its dramatic lines and muted, warm, emotional color palettes. Hopefully this comes through well in the game, because it can really set a tone for the player.
The game is set to launch in 2018 for PlayStation 4, with more information coming soon.
