Focus Home Interactive has uploaded another trailer for Greedfall, this time focusing on the game's companions. The trailer showcases the different abilities of each companion and the ways their gear can be customized. The trailer detals five companions, which we've listed below. Two can be brought the player at any given time:
Vasco - A duelist whose extraordinary agility compensates for his lack of proections; he also knows how to handle guns with great ease.
Siora - Can use light blades and ranged elemental magic.
Aphra - An excellent ranged fighter. Protect her from enemies getting in melee range to maximize her potential.
Petrus - Can fight from a distance as well as up close, thanks to his ability to wear armor.
Kurt - A melee combat master and can wear heavy armor.
Take a look at the trailer below, along with a description from Focus Home.
On the island of Teer Fradee, you’ll forge your own destiny - but you will not be alone. In the latest Companions Trailer, Spiders and Focus Home Interactive emphasize the importance of your companions, your relationships with them, and the stories they bring.
In GreedFall, you are a diplomat above all else. What defines your character is how you deal with the unique situations your position puts you in, and the company you choose to keep. Think your choices well, as each of the companions you encounter on your journey belongs to one of the many factions or guilds, with all the prejudices and ambitions this may bring.
Beyond the influence of their faction’s goals, each companion has their own personal quests. Ignore them for too long and they may decide to leave you. Help them, and you could have an ally – or lover – for life. Your companions will notice what you say and do, so consider their reactions before committing to a decision.
Think carefully when picking which two companions to bring with you, as each have unique skills to offer. If you suspect a challenging fight ahead, consider bringing along Coin Guard mercenary Kurt, who can be kitted out as a tough front-line warrior. Outside of combat, be cautious when entering diplomacy with a faction one of your companions are antagonistic with. Your choices will shape the world, along with the lives of those in it.
A couple of weeks ago, we got a look at the game's combat system, showcasing a variety of weapon and magic types in a vaguely real-time-with-pause combat system.
