Following the PlayStation community’s incredible response to Godfall on the PlayStation 5, the team at Counterplay Games is ecstatic to open up the world of Aperion to PlayStation 4 players. We are excited for the expanded community to experience all the new content coming to the game, including the next chapter of our story – Fire & Darkness*, starting August 10.
With additional allies joining our adventure, the Godfall community has a lot to be energized about – including a free upgrade path to PS5 for all PS4 players, as well as the free Lightbringer Update. With the Lightbringer Update, PS5 and PS4 players will now experience cross-generational co-op and can utilize our new matchmaking beta to tackle our most challenging endgame content. On top of that, we’re introducing a new game mode, unique cosmetics, and even more loot! With all the refinements we have made, I thought it might be helpful to take a moment to look at how far Godfall has come and let you know what’s in store.
Last year, we launched Godfall alongside the PS5 and have continued to hone the experience based on your immensely helpful feedback. With additions like our hefty Primal Update and quality of life updates, revamped input buffering, new resource tools through Zenun, boss fight improvements, Tower of Trials upgrades, Dreamstones, and more. The game has evolved past our wildest expectations and that is all thanks to you.
Together, we have faced and defeated the mad (wannabe) god, Macros, and are about to embark on an even more harrowing journey into the Fire Realm in Fire & Darkness. You will face new foes as an all-consuming darkness threatens to spread throughout Aperion and choke the world of all light. Expect nothing less than fierce resistance as you enter the Fire Realm. The Flameblood Tribe are some of the most formidable enemies in all of Aperion. They will stop at nothing to prevent you from reaching their leaders as they work to fulfill Kosmera’s plans of old.
Need an even greater challenge? The Lightbringer Update, which is free for all players, introduces the all-new endgame Lightbringer mode for those that have achieved level 50. The Sanctum’s light has been trapped, and the most powerful knights will be needed to release and spread it, building up enough strength to face the all-consuming darkness.
The mode begins with you and up to two other friends loading into one of the realms of Aperion where a mysterious force has emerged and shrouded the land in darkness. You will need to seal Dark Tears in a race against time to allow the Light of Seventh Sanctum to shine through. Teamwork will be essential to surviving these threats – matchmaking beta will serve you well.
We wanted to devise a new combat experience within Godfall to test even our most seasoned players in new challenging ways. Lightbringer combines the best of what makes Godfall thrilling. If you are successful in ridding Aperion of the Darkness, that feeling of overcoming daunting odds and immense triumph will permeate through every run.
Last but not least, we can’t forget about the loot! The Lightbringer Update introduces a new item tier – Cursed Items. These weapons bring devastating effects to the battlefield and will grant players a massive boon if they lift the Curse on the item and awaken its full potential. Be prepared to venture into Dreamstones and take on the enemies within the Ascended Tower of Trials to lift the curse. Further, the Lightbringer Update adds more than 50+ new cosmetic skins for Valorplates to help you stand out from fellow knights while in matchmaking.
With all these new additions, now is the perfect time for new and returning players to raise arms together and battle the enemies of Aperion. Everyone at Counterplay Games is eagerly looking forward to all the amazing moments and epic victories the PlayStation community will celebrate together once this new content goes live on August 10. Thank you for your continued support, and we hope you enjoy all the new additions to Godfall.
