Update: Godfall's official Twitter announced that the footage leaked earlier today was from a year-old internal presentation:
Hey everyone! We can confirm that the circulating trailer is year-old PC footage used as part of an internal presentation. We are energized by your excitement and look forward to showing you just how far this game has come. Stay tuned for a more detailed look soon!
The original story follows below.
The next generation of video game consoles is approaching, and thanks to a leak today, we can see a little of what they'll look like at launch. Godfall, set for a PlayStation 5 debut alongside PC, and new gameplay of it leaked today.
A playable version is currently on Streamable, though it's possible the mirror could get taken down soon. In it, we see some massive golden architecture, lighting tech, and lots of slashing and dashing.
Developed by Counterplay Games and published under Gearbox's publishing arm, Godfall is a next-gen "looter slasher," seemingly centered on swords and spears rather than the usual looter shooters' arsenal of firearms. Massive characters in shiny, sleek armor can be seen toting some medieval weaponry with a futuristic twist.
But this also gives us a glimpse of what PlayStation 5 games might look like within the earliest days of the console's lifetime. Ray tracing has been talked up for the next generation, and the lighting certainly looks gorgeous here. There are a lot of pretty particles and extra effects giving Godfall a little extra sheen and glimmer, but we still have a little bit to learn about it, including a release date.
Godfall does stand as one of the few games confirmed for Sony's PlayStation 5, even without a release date. We'll be waiting to see whether it makes the launch lineup. As for other games, we're still awaiting news on what games Sony will lead off with, though you likely won't hear about any of its first-party games at E3 2020.
