Godfall is Getting an Expansion and a Playstation 4 Version


Godfall is coming to the Playstation 4, along with new paid and free content.

No, that’s not a mistake. Every week there’s news of a Playstation 4 or Xbox One title getting a free next gen upgrade, but Godfall’s case it’s getting a last-gen downgrade. As announced by Gearbox at their E3 showcase, Godfall, once a Playstation 5 only title, will be coming to the PS4.

They’re not specified how the action-RPG’s PS4 incarnation will differ from the PS5 version; we’re expecting 1080p textures and a lower framerate, but it will open the game up to a wider audience. Those who purchase the PS4 version will get a free upgrade to the PS5 version though we doubt the reverse will apply.

The PS4 version of Godfall will be launched alongside two pieces of content. The first, Lightbringer, is a free update, while Fire & Darkness is a paid chunk of downloadable content. The latter will feature new enemies, a new realm, new loot and more.

We don’t anticipate a wave of Playstation 5 titles following suit, but it’s curious to see Godfall take a step back. It’s received mixed reviews and it may be that Gearbox is hoping it’ll find a wider audience on the PS4. Both the Playstation 4 version and the new content will launch this August 10th.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
