As GreedFall approaches its September 10 release on Xbox One, we at Spiders are pulling back the curtain to look at our inspirations and goals for GreedFall in a two-part web series. With pre-orders becoming available today, it’s now possible to secure your copy of Greedfall on Xbox One, and watch the web series to see just what awaits you on the island of Teer Fradee.
Our first episode “Terra Incognita” delves into the roots of the project. Inspired by the 17th century, GreedFall aims to convey the same sense of wonder instilled by the famous explorers, scientists, and naturalists of the time fueled further by the strangeness and magic you will encounter in the world.
As a horrible disease ravages your homeland, you set off on a grand voyage to the Island of Teer Fradee on the hunt for a cure. We’ve worked hard to craft Teer Fradee into a unique and memorable place with its own distinct personality, giving every creature, native tribe, and colonizing faction a history and purpose.
In our second episode “Forging an Experience,” we touch on many of the features in GreedFall, which emphasize that it is, above all, a core RPG experience. Within this adventure, choice, exploration, and character customization come together to give you a journey that is truly your own.
With hundreds of different armors and weapons, often styled according to the faction from which they originate, Spiders is committed to letting you choose your style. You can even customize individual parts of your gear, such as the pommel of your sword or the straps on your armor. These impact not only your appearance, but also impact gameplay through altering the attributes. Specialize or mix and match between a range of skills, attributes and talents – it’s up to you which paths to tread.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this webseries! If you’d like to read more about GreedFall, you can check out our series of devblogs.
