Godfall release date is fast approaching, with Gearbox and Counterplay Games set to unleash their loot slasher on PS5 and PC gamers soon. Godfall was the first game ever announced for the PS5, appearing way back when during last year’s The Game Awards event. It has featured prominently during a number of Sony streams since then, such as the PS5 June reveal event and during an August State of Play.

Ahead of the release of Godfall, reviews have started to come in – with a number of publications doing reviews in progress for the PS5 and PC title.
Here are the verdicts of some critics…
Godfall review – God is a Geek – 85: “Godfall is a massive surprise. It borrows combat from God of War and has enough loot to make Diablo blush. It may look garish but it’s well designed and has that ‘one more go’ factor.”
Godfall review in progress – Destructoid: “The jury is out on whether or not this is worthy of the full $70 next-gen pricetag, but for now, colour me surprised.”
Godfall review in progress – GameSpot: “The early signs are promising, then, particularly when it comes to combat. Mission design is uninspired thus far, with each one shuffling me from one fight to another with little else in between. Whether the combat has to carry the load throughout the entire game remains to be seen, but it just might be up to the task. I still need to dig into the Valorplates, which are sort of like skins for your character that come with different passive abilities and ultimate moves, and it seems to be a key piece of the game’s loot grind.”
Godfall review in progress – IGN: “As of right now, however, I’m enjoying Godfall, even if it’s not doing much to wow me and the repetition of its missions is wearing a bit thin. It’s got some fun and satisfying combat, a few genuinely novel mechanics, and graphics that range from absolutely gorgeous to a little over the top – but unless its thin story morphs into more than an excuse to go stab stuff, the grindable action-looter structure doesn’t seem like it has enough variety to sustain its otherwise expansive customisation.”
