Godfall will require an always-on internet connection no matter what mode is being played.
The approval first came from the game’s PS5 store page, where “online play required”. Some players, confused, reached out to the developer via Godfall’s official Twitter account for clarification.
Though the response was willing to claim that Godfall should not be categorized as a service game, it requires an internet connection to play.
“Maybe if we had been explaining better what the game is about, we would have understood why such decision,” said a commenter. “That’s because it’s an online coop game, but still… I mean even 2009’s Demon’s Souls while still online for coop, had an offline mode.”
“So the game will be unplayable when the servers are shut down in X number of years,” and “Not a great selling point.” wrote another commenter.
Godfall developer Counterplay Games and publisher Gearbox revealed pricing and pre-order details for the upcoming fantasy action game. It will be available worldwide from November 12th – but starting with the 19th for PS5 owners in Europe – three variants will be available: the £50 Godfall Standard edition, the £66 Godfall Deluxe Edition, and the £76 Godfall Ascended Edition.
The Godfall Standard base game includes the Deluxe Edition base game and expansion 1, and Godfall Ascended Edition includes the base game, expansion 1, and Godfall Ascended “digital cosmetic content”.
