GreedFall has been hanging around for a couple of years now, but it's never quite gotten the attention that it potentially deserves. The next title from French developer Spiders, it's described as a deep action role-playing game set in an intricate and rather unique gritty fantasy world. It's due to release later this year, on the 10th September.
Now here's the thing: Spiders doesn't have the best track record. Previous PlayStation 4 projects include Bound by Flame and The Technomancer -- two RPGs that had interesting concepts at their core and some cool ideas, but lacked the overall quality needed to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the giants of the genre. Spiders is only a small team, after all, and we doubt that the developer has a huge budget to work with.
But GreedFall could be the studio's breakout hit. While we still need to actually get our hands on the game to form a complete opinion, the more we see of it, the more we're starting to think that GreedFall could actually be pretty good. Don't get us wrong, we're not expecting the second coming of The Witcher 3, but if you're a fan of RPGs, then we reckon it's definitely worth keeping an eye on.
