POPULAR Open World Age of Exploration-themed RPG game Greedfall is getting a sequel, with developers Spiders confirming the new title is set for a 2024 release will be a prequel to the 2019 title.
In an official statement, the team it is confirmed that GreedFall 2 takes place three years before the events of the first game, saying “Players will assume the role of a Teer Fradee native who is uprooted from their island and is taken to where the colonists originally came from, the continent of Gacane, which has been decimated by both war and the Malichor plague.”
“We are very excited to reveal GreedFall 2 to everyone, the new game from Spiders,” said Nacon CEO Alain Falc in a statement. “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.” Spiders founder and director Jehanne Rousseau added, “While we were working on Steelrising, our love of the Greedfall universe never faded, and so we are thrilled to be returning to it.” She continued, saying, “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.”
The original Greedfall, which received a current generation patch last year in 2021, went vastly underrated by most gamers – likely due to its lack of a big name – it was confirmed in 2020 that the title had sold over a million copies. These games sales figures have obviously warranted enough to get the greenlight for a sequel. While not much has been explained about the title, it seems to emulate the basis of the original title about leaving civilised lands to explore and colonise brand new worlds.
Greedfall 2: The Dying World is targeting a 2024 release date on PC, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. No word yet on the family of previous generation consoles.
