Spiders and Nacon announce GreedFall II: The Dying World for PC and consoles
GreedFall II takes place three years before the events of the first GreedFall. Players take on the role of a Teer Fradee native. Gacane colonists have devastated the land with battles. The native of Teer Fradee must regain the freedom amidst the chaos, by any means necessary. Like the first game, GreedFall II is aiming to place a focus on player choice in how they want to tackle the challenges presented the game, whether it be through combat or diplomacy.
Nacon CEO Alan Falc said the following in initial press release for GreedFall II.
We are very excited to reveal GreedFall 2 to everyone, the new game from Spiders.
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.
Founder and Director of Spiders Jehanne Rousseau also issued the following remarks upon the unveiling of the studio's new project.
While we were working on Steelrising, our love of the GreedFall universe never faded, and so we are thrilled to be returning to it.
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.
Spiders and Nacon showed off an Announcement Trailer for GreedFall II: The Dying World.
After the success of GreedFall, with over 2 million copies sold, NACON and the development studio Spiders are pleased to announce a new game: GreedFall 2.
Continuing the winning formula of the first game, GreedFall 2 is an RPG that focuses on story and player choice but also includes new gameplay in the form of more tactical combat and revisits the unique universe created by its predecessor.
The story starts three years before the events of the first game and the adventures of De Sardet. This time you play as a native of Teer Fradee, uprooted by force from your island and taken to the continent of Gacane, where the colonists are from. In this old world ravaged by war and scarred by the Malichor plague and the political scheming of the different factions, you must regain your freedom and control of your own destiny. Using diplomacy, cunning or combat, as well as help from allies you make, it’s up to you to end one man’s ambitions of conquest, which could spell the end for the continent and your island.
