Gearbox’s Godfall is arguably one of the most anticipated launch titles for the PlayStation 5. Weeks before it launches, we’re learning more about the game and how it is meant to be played.
Godfall is a loot-based hack and slash that launches with the PlayStation 5. Surprisingly, fans are still a bit confused about some parts of the game despite it launching only a few weeks from now. Its PC and PlayStation 5 release are already set, so it’s high time that players already know more about the upcoming title.
Internet connection required
The developers of the game have persisted that the title won’t be a service game. However, as spotted on the game’s PlayStation Store description, an internet connection will be required for it. This has caused some confusion to some fans, as many have thought that the game can be played offline.
In response to a tweet, the official account of the game answered the question saying, “Godfall is not a service game, but does require an internet connection to play.”
Some fans are rather disappointed with this. In truth, the game can be played in co-op. However, fans suggest that the least the developers could do was allow for offline play if players decide to go through the game on their own.
Many games feature online multiplayer and offline solo mode. Sadly, it seems like the requirement to have a persistent internet connection is already set in stone.

What is the game about?
The title is described as a looter slasher. It features a loot-based progression system as well as a skill cap that forces players to consider their equipment and mastery of the combat system.
It has been likened to Destiny in many ways, but it’s mostly because of how loot works. Instead of guns, the game will focus on melee weapons such as swords, axes, and shields. As for armors, players will be able to unlock armor sets as they progress through the game. Beyond this, we’ve seen that the game features high octane combat.
Godfall is going to be one of the initial titles for the PlayStation 5. There’s already a lot of hype behind the title, but it will be hard pulling off a game that is set to last for years. It seems like the developers already have their ideas on increasing the game’s replayability, but we’ll have to get our hands on the title first.
