The game will be released in Japan for PlayStation 4 on October 31, 2019, before coming to North America and Europe in 2020.
Focus Home Interactive has released a new video for GreedFall, the upcoming action RPG from developer Spiders. In the nearly-four-minute video, lead writer and Spiders CEO Jehanne Rousseau and art director Cyril Tahmassebi talk about the game’s premise and the creation of its 17th century-inspired fantasy setting.
Set in a world ravaged by an incurable disease, GreedFall puts players in control of an explorer of Teer Fradee, a recently discovered island that may hold the key to curing the illness. Players will have to navigate the factions in this new world all while discovering the secrets of the island. GreedFall is set to be released on September 10, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Digital Sun Games and 11 bit studios have announced that the Between Dimensions DLC for Moonlighter will be released for PC via Steam on July 23, 2019. The DLC will be available for $6.99/€6.99, with a console release to come at a later date. Between Dimensions will add new monsters that appear in the game’s current dungeons, while a new Interdimenional Dungeon will challenge players with numerous powerful mini-bosses. The DLC will include new weapons, armor, shop items, and accessories, and will add in new Trick Weapons that grant special powers but may also come with other, less desirable effects.
Moonlighter is one part shopkeeping and one part dungeon-crawling and follows Will, a shopkeeper who at night visits the nearby ruins for adventures and danger. During the day, Will manages a store, interacts with the other townsfolk, and can craft and enchant weapons. The game transforms into an action RPG at night with customisable loot, randomly-generated dungeons, and varied playstyles. The game is available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and those looking to read more can check out Charalampos Papdimitriou’s review of the PlayStation 4 version.
