Godfall is coming to PS4 in August

Looter-slasher Godfall is only available on PC and PS5 at the moment, but the game has just been announced for PS4, too.

Godfall is perhaps best known as a middling PS5 console launch exclusive, but that description of the game isn't going to hold for much longer: publisher Gearbox has announced it's coming to PS4.

The PS4 version of the game will launch on August 10, alongside a free update for the game on PS5 and PC. This new update will introduce the Fire & Darkness expansion to the title, which will introduce new cosmetics and new experiences.

We've heard that the game might be coming to PS4 previously, thanks to a rogue PEGI rating that was seen spotted back in April.

Check out the trailer for the new update below.

It's not really surprising we're seeing the game move away from the PS5: as per a note on the title’s launch trailer, it had a six-month exclusivity deal for PS5 and PC via Epic Games Store, which expired on May 12.

The game didn’t review too well when it launched in November 2020, with most scores coming in fairly low.

“Some impressive visuals and solid combat make Godfall fun to hack ‘n’ slash in, but it’s only going to be memorable for its release date,” our own Tom Orry said in his Godfall review.

Here's hoping a second life on PS4 can turn things around for the game.
