Your time has come, Valorians! Godfall: Ultimate Edition marks the arrival of the epic action RPG on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. The team here at Counterplay Games can’t wait for the Xbox community to dive into this epic high fantasy playground we’ve created for you. Let’s jump in and look at some of the awesome content you’ll discover when Godfall: Ultimate Edition launches on April 7, 2022.
Godfall is a melee action-RPG designed specifically to be the tinkerer’s dream. Playing as Orin, you find Aperion on the precipice of ruin. You and your small band of loyal champions are the last of the Valorian knights, god-like warriors able to equip Valorplates. These legendary armor sets transform those that wield them into unstoppable masters of melee combat and harness powerful elemental and status effects to tear through foes. Your goal is to climb through the elemental realms and challenge Macros, who is rapidly acquiring the necessary resources to ascend to the status of a god.
Godfall: Ultimate Edition contains the core game and a year and a half of post-launch updates, including the massive Primal, Lightbringer, and Exalted updates plus the Fire & Darkness expansion. Godfall: Ultimate Edition will retail for $39.99, with a special limited time Xbox launch price of $29.99!
Take on the Epic Campaign in Single-Player and Co-op
The story of Godfall has players adventuring across the three elemental realms of Aperion alone or with up to two other players as you battle towards the final confrontation with the twisted fallen knight, Macros. If successful, an even greater threat will emerge with the arrival of Moirax and the Flameblood Tribe in the deadly Fire Realm from the Fire & Darkness Expansion. The enemies found in the Fire Realm are as diverse as they are formidable and will test even the most well-equipped knights. The Exalted Update brings a host of story updates and enhancements including new cutscenes, increased Macros dialog, contextual loading screens, and more NPC interactions. These changes make Godfall more immersive than ever before!
Choose Your Valorplate
These 12 unique sets of armor inspired by the signs of the Zodiac each offer diverse powers from summoning spiritual backup, redirecting damage back at enemies, or powering up attacks with elemental infused status effects of fire, earth, air, and water. They are unlocked by spending resources collected from various sources throughout the Realms of Aperion. Valorplates can be further empowered thanks to the new Shard system.
While dawning a specific Valorplate, players will need to complete unlock requirements like defeating enemies or locating points of interest in the Spirit Realms game mode to unlock Shards. Once unlocked, the Shards are equipped to the Valorplate activating an additional ability tied to a triggering move in combat. Shards can be upgraded up to five times at the Forge scaling the benefits. After unlocking all four of the Shards on a given Valorplate, it becomes Ascendant and gains a second ability. More still, once all four Shards are leveled up to rank five the Valorplate becomes Exalted and gains a third ability, such as massive boosts to ailment damage.
The Tinkerer’s Dream
There is no shortage of awesome loot to obtain in Godfall. And you better believe that the Exalted Update comes jam packed with features to help you navigate all these treasures as well as a host of new cosmetic options for you to unlock. Knowing that each battle and challenge can require its own special approach, players can customize and save up to three loadouts for each Valorplate. Make sure to continue experimenting until you’ve found the ultimate build befitting a god!
We wouldn’t be able to call Godfall an action RPG if it didn’t come loaded with a spread of deadly weapons for players to master and collect. Five weapon classes, each with their own play styles and attributes await players. These include the quick and deadly longswords and dual blades; the powerful far-reaching polearms; and the destructive warhammers and greatswords perfect for smashing through enemies.
By defeating enemies, players earn experience helping them climb to level 50. Each level earns a player a skill point that can be applied toward improving various attributes and your move set in combat. The journey doesn’t stop at just level 50 – players can power up beyond the level cap through a whopping 450 Ascension Levels to obtain new powers and bonuses, allowing them to gain the upper hand against our hardcore endgame challenges.”
An Array of Rewarding Endgame Activities
Godfall shines brightest when players have the ability to put their brilliantly crafted builds to the test. And what better way to do it than inviting your friends to loot and slash through the game’s several endgame modes? Players can matchmake with up to two other players to challenge Godfall’s unique endgame modes such as Dreamstones, Tower of Trials, Lightbringer, and the brand new six-player Spirit Realms. My personal favorite of these awesome options is to battle it out against increasingly ferocious enemies in the Ascended or Exalted Tower of Trials. These modes are wave based in nature and will be your gateway to legendary gear only attainable from climbing the tower and facing high leveled bosses. Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X players can all jump into endgame matchmaking together – so make sure to bring some friends!
When we set out to create Godfall, we wanted to create an opulent and vibrant world. Metals needed to be shiny, and visual effects needed to stand out from the backgrounds. With our arrival on Xbox, these desires have been cranked to 11. Xbox players will be able to experience Godfall’s visuals like never before with the addition of Variable Refresh Rate and Dolby Vision for HDR-capable displays. We spent a lot of time adjusting every visual effect in the game and we hope you can feel this labor of love, or at least benefit from the effort with brighter highlights, sharper contrast and more vibrant colors throughout the experience.
The Complete Experience
Godfall: Ultimate Edition is a complete premium experience. There are no microtransactions or DLC to fuss with —all cosmetics are earnable by reaching milestones and completing challenges in-game, and the Ultimate Edition even includes the original Ascended Edition and pre-order rewards! We have been listening closely to player feedback since the launch of Godfall and have worked incredibly hard to deliver as many of the community’s most requested features to the game as we can. Combat is faster and more fluid with a knockdown recovery skill; inventory management is more streamlined and robust; Valorplates feel diverse and offer unique play style options; the story experience has been enhanced, and there are now dozens of new weapons banner and shield cosmetics to unlock. We cannot wait for this new band of knights to explore the world we have so thoroughly enjoyed creating.
