French Developer, Spiders, has gradually been building a following thanks to games like Bound by Flame and The Technomancer. Their latest title is Greedfall and moves things to a new world influenced by 17th Century Europe and the Baroque art of that time. The game has just gotten an epic new cinematic trailer which introduces us to the setting and some of the enemies we can expect to experience.
Here’s the official description of the game as well as the trailer –
GreedFall is the latest RPG from Spiders, currently in development for Xbox One. Set in a 17th century setting embedded in magic, Greedfall has a unique visual identity inspired by European Baroque art, depicting grandiose sceneries in muted warm colors and dark undertones.
Expect a fresh new world as – along with many other settlers, mercenaries, and treasure hunters – you set foot 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, who are protected by the manifestations of the island’s earthly magic in the form of supernatural beings.
With a strong focus on its core RPG identity, Greedfall follows Spider’s experience in building intricate worlds filled with mysteries to discover, weaving deep character interactions, and offering players freedom to achieve quests and objectives in many different ways – through combat, as well as diplomacy, deception or stealth. The island of Greedfall is a living, ever-evolving world. Your actions, from seemingly trivial choices to the most important political decisions, will influence and alter its course, as well as the relationship between the different factions established on the island.
