Greedfall Gets New-Gen Upgrade, Story Expansion, And Gold Edition Bundle

2019’s Greedfall is getting a new expansion, an upgrade to new-gen consoles, as well as a new edition packaging those updates together. If you missed out on the choice-driven RPG or want a new reason to revisit the island of Teer Fradee one more time, developer Spiders has some tantalizing propositions for you.

First up, Greedfall is coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S on June 30. It’ll be a free upgrade if you own the previous gen versions of the game and you can transfer your save data as well. The new-gen versions boast 4K UHD visuals, 60 frames-per-second performance, and faster loading. 

On the same day comes the arrival of the new expansion, The De Vespe Conspiracy. Set in a new region of Teer Fradee, the story, as the name implies, revolves around unraveling a complex conspiracy while confronting a new enemy faction. When you’re not working untangle a web of lies and intrigue, you’ll be facing suiting up in new gear to take on never-before-seen beasts.

If you’ve never played Greedfall but are interested in giving it a shot, Greedfall: Gold Edition might be for you. It bundles the base game and The De Vespe Conspiracy to give you the full adventure in one package. Gold Edition also arrives on June 30th for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The price of this bundle is unknown at this time. 

For those who missed out on Greedfall, the free-form RPG takes to an uncharted island steeped in magic and inhabited by mythical wildlife. As a colonial noble, you’re searching for a cure for a deadly disease but quickly get wrapped up in conflict involving the native population and other invading foreigners. 

In his 7.25 out of 10 review, GI editor-in-chief Andrew Reiner highlighted the game’s strengths and weaknesses saying “GreedFall’s stories, world, and wealth of choices are fun to explore and can legitimately be great at times, but the problematic combat, reliance on conversation for quests, and lack of polish over everything hold it back, but Spiders is on to something and isn’t far off from having its first truly notable RPG.” You can read the full review here
