Godfall received some so-so reviews when it first came out a while back. But its developers have been working away on it to make it a much better experience. Godfall is a fantasy action RPG that utilizes high-impact third-person melee combat to engage players as they hunt for loot, don legendary armor sets, and defeat vicious enemies.
Story-wise, the kingdom of Aperion is on the precipice of ruin. You, the player, are the last of the Valorian knights, god-like warriors able to equip Valorplates, legendary armor sets that transform wielders into unstoppable masters of melee combat. Tear through foes as you climb through the elemental realms and challenge the mad god, Macros who awaits you at the top.
As you face challenging missions in the world of Godfall, enemies and bosses will reward fans with head-turning loot as they are vanquished. Godfall can be played entirely in solo, duo or three-player coop, providing fun for all.
Developer Counterplay Games is innovating with Godfall to provide a fresh take on third-person action combat by rewarding skill-based offensive gameplay and making every hit matter. Beginning April 7th, Godfall will be receiving its largest free ‘Exalted’ update, which will include a slew of new content, quality of life enhancements, earnable cosmetics, and every major fan-requested feature tracked since launch!
“Godfall’s Exalted Update is the culmination of a year and a half of post-launch support and directly speaks to major elements our community has been telling us they want to experience in Godfall,” said Daniel Nordlander, Game Director at Counterplay Games. “We have been tracking this feedback on forums, social media posts as well as countless streams and videos in an effort to target where we didn’t quite hit player expectations or, at times, even our own. The Exalted Update is not only a thank you to the players that have been with us since day one helping us improve, but offers new players the best moment to jump in and experience the World of Aperion.”
Here’s an broad overview of the major changes coming in the Exalted Update:
Each of the 12 Valorplates now have four unlockable Shards which provide new ways to customize and enhance your playstyle.
For example, through Shards Phoenix can ignite enemies more easily through Wildfire Strike, unleash a cone of fire through her shield, and even resurrect herself!
Ascendant and Exalted Valorplates
Players who collect all four Shards will unlock a Valorplate’s Ascendant form, granting a second passive ability.
After leveling all four shards up to the max level, the Valorplate will become Exalted, granting a third and final passive, as well as unlocking a visually stunning new cosmetic which can be displayed on the Valorplate podium in the Sanctum.
Ravenna and Soras will now accompany Orin and fight alongside him on certain story missions, as well as providing new dialogue in the Sanctum between missions.
Orin’s twisted brother Macros now has a greater presence throughout the campaign, taunting Orin during story missions and elevating the tension leading up to your epic final confrontation.
All weapons now come equipped with powerful Timing Attacks that can be unleashed directly after using a weapon technique.
Knockdown 2.0 is one of the most requested features by fans. Players can now unlock a recovery skill that lets them quickly get back into the fight after being knocked down.
A Revive system has been added, allowing players to revive each other during co-op!
Reworked Realm Bosses
The Sigil mechanic has been removed in favor of streamlining how Realm Bosses work. Now players can challenge Realm Bosses as soon as the story allows.
However, each Realm Boss now has three captains scattered throughout their realm. Defeating the captains will remove powerful banes that would otherwise make the Realm Boss fight much more challenging.
Fan-Requested Quality of Life Enhancements
Godfall has a ton of awesome loot to earn, and the Exalted Update provides a variety of new ways to sort and manage your growing inventory.
Designed to be the tinkerer’s dream, Godfall’s new loadout menu provides players the ability to save up to three custom builds per Valorplate, including unique skill grids!
Exalted Tower of Trials
Test your skills against enemies that scale up level 150 and multiple bosses that spawn simultaneously in Godfall’s ultimate endgame challenge.
Earn unique new weapons with triple primary traits!
All-New Spirit Realms Mode for up to 6 players
Match up with up to five other players for Godfall’s greatest co-op experience to date!
Utilize Spirit Vision to battle enemies and discover secrets hidden between the Material and Spirit planes as you collect Elder Souls.
Use Elder Souls to unlock the Elder Gate and take on Godfall’s array of deadly bosses with unique spirit vision mechanics.
Collect Shards of Macros to gain powerful boons that last the entire duration of your Spirit Realms run.
Earn awesome new Augments with double primary traits.
This is all coming to gaming PCs on Aprile 7th so mark your calenders.
