GreedFall Story Trailer showcases a world of ancient magic

The GreedFall story trailer is here and it gives us our first look into a world of ancient magic. Set in a fantasy version of the 17th century, GreedFall (developed by Spiders and published by Focus Home Interactive) has you setting foot on a remote island filled with superstitious, tribal people who seem to wield a form of druidic magic. A tale of colonialism collides with a group of people that simply want to be left alone to live their lives — and it’s up to you to see how it all turns out.

The first moments of the GreedFall story trailer opens with some shots of the island, showing off the fantastical creatures that live there. We then see a prince’s nephew approach a ship that is being loaded with cargo. Apparently, the prince is leading an expedition to this island in search of a cure for a disease that is afflicting his people, including someone who appears to be very close to him.

A colony is being set up on the island, and this is where the conflict emerges. The local populace believes in a strange sort of druidic magic and is protected by powerful creatures born from nature herself. The colonists want them to renounce their old ways, but many of the local people don’t really see anything wrong with their beliefs. It’s a tale as old as time, with the minor change that the spirits that these people believe in are very real and will totally kick your butt if you’re not careful.

This game certainly seems to be building an interesting world that will be well worth exploring! You can watch the GreedFall story trailer for yourself below. GreedFall will launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in September 2019. No price has been announced. For now, you can add the game to your Wishlist on Steam.
