Monster-filled 'GreedFall' launches on Xbox One and PC

What you need to know

  • GreedFall is a role-playing game from the developers behind The Technomancer.
  • It takes place in a 17th-century fantasy setting with monsters and magic.
  • The game just launched on Xbox One and PC.
  • You can purchase GreedFall for $50 through the Microsoft Store.

GreedFall is a role-playing game (RPG) that focuses on choices. Unlike many other titles out there, you can't complete every objective because everything is a choice. You can either help one person or the other. You can either approach a combat situation one way or the other. In order to experience it all, you'll need to play it multiple times.

After months of waiting, it's finally available on Xbox One and PC. The title features amazing visuals even though it has some clunky controls. The Xbox One X port looks incredibly crisp and probably runs at 1440p or 1800p resolution. The performance is also stable, but the PC port does exhibit some issues if you crank it up to 60 frames per second.

You can purchase GreedFall for $50 through the Microsoft Store right now. Luckily, it's a relatively small download so you won't have to wait too long to jump in. In my opinion, it's one of the biggest surprises this year. The story starts off slow, but becomes epic when monsters come into play.

In Windows Central's review, Brendan Lowry said, "Despite the lacking dialogue system and the issues with the game's presentation and performance, I still think any fan of RPGs should check out GreedFall. It's an impressive title that manages to mostly achieve its goal of being a blend of several RPG design styles, and the result is an experience most players will enjoy quite a bit."
