Spiders Studio is certainly very busy at the moment. They’ve just upgraded GreedFall for current hardware. Along with that came the game’s first expansion The De Vespe Conspiracy. More importantly, they are busy working on their next RPG Steelrising. So you would expect that to be the priority with its September launch getting closer. Well, Spiders decide today to announce another project. So without further ado, let’s introduce GreedFall 2.
Yes, that’s right GreedFall is getting a sequel. Or more specifically it’s a prequel as the game is set three years before the original game. The game’s full title is GreedFall 2: The Dying World.
Naturally, they have not given much info at this early stage but it’s launching in 2024. However, we expect a launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. What we don’t know is will also be abandoning last-gen hardware?
What We Know About GreedFall 2
The official press release gives information about the game.
The story starts three years before the events of the first game and the adventures of De Sardet. This time you play as a native of Teer Fradee, uprooted by force from your island and taken to the continent of Gacane, where the colonists are from. In this old world ravaged by war and scarred by the Malichor plague and the political scheming of the different factions, you must regain your freedom and control of your own destiny. Using diplomacy, cunning or combat, as well as help from allies you make, it’s up to you to end one man’s ambitions of conquest, which could spell the end for the continent and your island.
Why A Return To GreedFall
A statement from the CEO of Nacon Alain Falc in the press release helps answer that.
We are very excited to reveal GreedFall 2 to everyone, the new game from Spiders. Many fans across the world were begging for this sequel, and we are delighted to be publishing this new game that these fans are sure to love. We also hope it will appeal to new players and all fans of role-playing games, great stories, action, and fantasy.
The founder and director of the developer Jehanne Rousseau added the following.
While we were working on Steelrising, our love of the Greedfall universe never faded, and so we are thrilled to be returning to it. In this new chapter, players will explore the old continent with its bigger and more diverse environments. They will meet new companions and new factions, and I hope they will have unforgettable adventures.”
