Solid action RPG GreedFall is getting a sequel, publisher Nacon has announced. It's targeting a 2024 release date, which is perhaps a bit surprising when you remember that its developer, Spiders, is also working on Steelrising, which is due out later this year. They've been busy!
The sequel's official title is GreedFall II: The Dying World, and it's actually going to be a prequel that takes place three years before the events of the first game. "This time you play as a native of Teer Fradee, uprooted by force from your island and taken to the continent of Gacane, where the colonists are from. In this old world ravaged by war and scarred by the Malichor plague and the political scheming of the different factions, you must regain your freedom and control of your own destiny," reads the press release.
It sounds like GreedFall 2 is still a character-driven RPG, but there is mention of new gameplay twists. The press release says: "Continuing the winning formula of the first game, GreedFall 2 is an RPG that focuses on story and player choice but also includes new gameplay in the form of more tactical combat and revisits the unique universe created by its predecessor." Interesting.
No specific platforms have been announced yet — just "consoles" — but we'd be shocked if this skipped PS5 and PS4.
For what it's worth, we think that GreedFall 2 could be really good. As alluded, the original GreedFall is a decent game — an adventure that teeters on the edge of being great, but it doesn't quite make the jump. A sequel could definitely build and improve upon what's come before.
Are you up for GreedFall 2? Did you play the first game? Interrogate some baddies in the comments section below.
yes thank you! such and interesting and world to explore.
I am playing through the first one now. It is really good for AA game with a lower budget. They just need more character customization features and better lipsyncing.
If it's coming in 2024, I'd be shocked if it's on PS4. We'll see though, the old girl has certainly proven that it's still capable.
I LOVED the original! Really need to get back to it for the platinum and do the DLC.
Super excited to get another experience inside this world! It has so much potential waiting to be explored!
I'm screaming right now. I knew they were teasing something!
One of my favorite RPGs ever! Next to Mass Effect and Dragon Age.
It's just a bummer that's it's so far out. Guys, again, DON'T SLEEP ON SPIDERS!
@Divergent95 If your tolerance for mediocrity is low you should definitely sleep on spiders.
Great! I guess a sequel to GF1 would have been tricky. I'd be surprised if a 2024 game had an 8th gen release, though?
Oh god, not another one. The premise was great, exciting even but the end product was sub par. I got it for free on Ps5 and even that wasn’t a good experience. It needed a hell of a lot more money and resources for it to hit the mark that was plainly obvious. It also was suffering from somewhat of an identity crisis as it was neither a good period piece nor a good whatever else it was trying to be cos it ended up a sup par jack of all trades and a definite master of none
@Bismarck Hun, the fact that you're responding in a rude fashion says a lot about you. If you don't like the studio or their games, then don't comment on the news article.
@Divergent95 I am not a nomadic person who lived in Central Asia, the Caucasus, and Eastern Europe between the 4th and 6th century AD so don't call me Hun.
Also, just like you are free to praise that studio I am free to insult it.
Yes! I'm so happy with this 😁 Greedfall was one of those games on the cusp of being really good. Spiders are yet another European studio who are constantly upping their game but are in desperate need of a bigger budget!
@lolwhatno @Bismarck @Divergent95 Let's leave it there everyone, I don't think this is worth an argument.
Great game. Really looking forward to this. It'll be a pre-order for me...
@lolwhatno I wasn't rude. Just because Spiders is an underdog doesn't mean that they should be shielded from criticism. Maybe they need to lower the scale of their games a bit instead of copying Witcher 3 with a fracture of the talent and money.
@ShogunRok There is nothing wrong with some banter. Without arguments this website will go the way of the Dodo.
Shatter news yesterday and now news of a Greedfall prequel (when Steelrising isn't out yet). Wow some unpredictable news lately
I have the first one on PS5. Still haven't gotten around to it yet but I want to change that soon. It always looked intriguing to me though so congratulations to the team and the fans for being able to put out a sequel!
@Bismarck I don't want to continue the discussion because as the moderation said it is something stupid to argue about. But I want to say 2 things :
1- you were directly replying to the person, you were looking for a reactionn.
2- This isn’t criticism, this is just an insult. Criticism is pointing out flaws in something, you just called the game mediocre.
@Divergent95 there’s two sides to a coin, both are equally valid. So to say don’t comment if you don’t like it is folly
Oh great... they could've made a sequel to mars warlogs/technomancer or bound by flame, but they have to go with the one i didn't like. Fair enough. I'm not buying though.
Hey great news! GreedFall is on my rotation. Fun game with very good dialogue. This sequel sounds interesting.
This is excellent news. I've been a fan of this studio since the PS3 era.
I hope they eleminate the back tracking, so much deja vu standing in the same rooms talking about things I'd lost interest in at that point.
It was a great world but I really did not enjoy the gameplay and story all that much and found myself getting bored. The voice acting was also not too great either. I won’t write it off just yet as there was definitely untapped potential there.
I liked the first game so this is a welcome surprise. It's also a good substitute for me until Dragon Age 4 releases.
So many people love it, but just as many share your opinion.
It's just too big of a game to start and drop eventually.
This is what is what i was looking for from them rather than steel rising as the gameplay is so different for the latter. In the age of acquisition the no console mentioned is in the back of my head
Another great display of how frickin’ sensitive times are these when calling a studio or their games ‘mediocre’ (which is absolutely true based on average reviews) can stir such reactions and even involvement of a moderator 🤡
I enjoyed it.
Looking forward to seeing what they do with a bigger development team and potentially higher budget.
Cool stuff, looking forward to it. I liked Greedfall but I thought Bound By Flame was a much better game with a better world and lore. Hope they expand on that one too someday or reboot it or something, it could've been so much more I feel.
Greedfall is probably the best attempt at a Bioware game by a smaller studio that I've played. It was a really enjoyable experience. Very much looking forward to seeing more about the sequel.
I love greedfall so a prequel is all good.word up son
Nice. I really enjoyed the first one. It was far from perfect but had that old school BioWare type charm.
I enjoyed Greedfall and was hoping for more refinement in Greedfall 2 or at least some technical upgrades, As Spider hasn't done a sequel to a game as far as I know.The trailer doesn't make it seem so. Hopefully I'm wrong.
What are y’all’s thoughts on the first one? It’s on a deep sale right now on NA PS Store. Very curious, it had lukewarm critical response but I’ve heard it referred to as a cult classic a few times in the interim. Worth a go?
I hope Spiders aren't stretching their webs too thin with two games in the work at once.
I liked their games so far but the main problem with them is that they get repetitive about halfway in and there is a lot of backtracking, especially if you do the side missions.
Looking forward to this. Really like the first one.
First game was pretty good, finished with the evil ending exploiting the island. 😈
I still need to play thru the first game, waiting for a deep sale on the PS5 version.
Loved the first game , not d3ure if a prequel excites me as much
