Spiders Studio’s upcoming RPG GreedFall will let you forge your destiny on uncharted lands when it arrives next month, but this is one voyage you won’t be making alone. Today’s new Companions Trailer from Spiders and Focus Home Interactive shines a light on the unique party members that will join you on your adventure, your relationships with them, and the different stories they have to tell.
How you deal with new situations as an explorer and diplomat will define your hero’s story, and the company you choose to keep plays a big part in that. Each of the companions you meet belongs to one of GreedFall’s many factions or guilds, and these organizations all have their own ambitions and prejudices, so think through your actions carefully.
Beyond the influence of their faction’s goals, each companion has their own personal quests, too. Ignore them for too long, and they may choose to leave you. Help them, and you could have an ally – or lover – for life. Your companions will notice what you say and do, so consider their reactions before committing to a decision.
Be mindful when picking which two companions to bring with you, as well: each has their own special skills to offer. If you suspect a challenging fight ahead, for example, consider taking Coin Guard mercenary Kurt, who can be kitted out as a tough front-line warrior. But be careful when negotiating with a faction one of your companions is antagonistic against — your choices will shape not only the world of GreedFall, but also the lives of those in it.
GreedFall launches on Sept. 10, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. Pre-orders are live now on all platforms at http://greedfall.com/shop.
