During Microsoft's Inside Xbox show at Gamescom 2019, upcoming role-playing game (RPG) GreedFall got a new trailer, and it offers a look at some of the complex relationships you'll have to maintain throughout the game.

In GreedFall, you'll approach your interactions with different nations as a diplomat, befriending and taking on companions from a variety of cultures. aking things more complex is that each companion has their own views on the world and the people within it. The choices you make throughout the game will have an influence on how each character views you, so you'll have to be careful with every decision you make.

Your companions will each have their own questlines, and failing to interact with them enough could cause them to leave your party. However, if you play your cards right, you'll get a chance to discover more about each character, building relationships and fleshing out the lore of the world around you.

The system sounds a lot like what we've seen in Dragon Age games in the past, and it sounds like it has plenty of depth to look forward to.

GreedFall is expected to launch on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on September 10. The game is also enhanced for Xbox One X, so you'll get better visuals if you're playing on Microsoft's latest console. If you dig what you've seen so far, you can preorder Greedfall now for $50.
