Get your first glimpse at the future of gaming as the first gameplay footage of Godfall, the upcoming PS5 game, has leaked online.
Revealed back in December, Godfall was the first game officially announced for the PlayStation 5. But its reveal came in the form of a cinematic trailer, meaning we never actually got to see what a game on the PS5 looks like..
That changed today as a six-second clip of gameplay has leaked online (watch it here). According to the original poster, YeaQuarterDongIng, the combat footage is taken from an unreleased trailer. It’s possible that this is a trailer that could be shown during the PlayStation 5 reveal event, rumored to take place in February.
As for the video itself, it’s just six seconds of gameplay footage which isn’t really enough to make any sort of critical assessment. It looks like a game. It’s got sword-swinging, bright particle effects and imposing enemies. It’s exactly what you would expect to see from a game billed as a “fantasy looter-slasher.”

I will say that combat looks slower than I initially expected, but that’s not a bad thing at all. It looks like you’ll have slow-motion finishers and, of course, a wide variety of weapons and enemies. Other than that, there’s not much to else to take away from the clip.
The graphics don’t look like anything we wouldn’t already see on current-gen systems, but it sounds like the big focus of the PS5 and Xbox Series X is more on load times and cloud gaming. I wouldn’t expect to see a huge jump in graphics or visuals. Still, it does look pretty.
Godfall is being developed by Counterplay Games and published by Gearbox, which probably explains the looter approach. It’s slated to release in holiday 2020 for PlayStation 5. There’s been no mention of an Xbox release.
