PS5 Games 2020: First Game Announced By the Makers of Borderlands

Godfall is the first game to be announced for the PlayStation 5 system. Here is everything we know so far about the new game published by Borderlands creator, Gearbox.

Godfall has been announced as the first official game for the PlayStation 5

There hasn’t been a huge amount of information that has been released but here’s what we know so far.

Published by Borderlands creator Gearbox and developed by Counterplay Games, Godfall is a third person “looter-slasher” set in an entirely new fantasy universe and has an emphasis on collecting an ever-growing amount of weapons throughout the game. 

You can view the teaser trailer here:

Writing on the PlayStation blog, CEO of Counterplay Games Kevin Lee said "Our goal with Godfall is to reforge fantasy ARPG-style loot progression and third-person melee combat into a whole new genre: The Looter-Slasher. Namely, our game is uniquely one-part gear driven and one-part player-skill driven. 

 "Godfall retains the desire for offense-oriented, mastery-driven combat, rewarding you with head-turning, powerful loot that then inspires your next set of character builds."

Players can play the game either solo, duo or in a group of three. 

Godfall is due to be released at the end of 2020 alongside the PlayStation 5 as a console exclusive game. Note how I said console exclusive, that's because the game will also be released on PC through the Epic Games store (exclusive there for 12 months). 

We’ll update as and when more information has been released.
