Tower of Trials
There is a new bullet point in the press release and on the updated digital storefront pages for Godfall that hints at Godfall’s end-game content.
- Vanquish Worthy Foes
- Test your skills in the Tower of Trials and challenge yourself against the toughest foes and earn top-tier loot.
To me, this kinda sounds like the Slaughter Domes from Borderlands 3. But I have seen people compare it to the rift system from Diablo 3. This makes sense since folks who have previously worked on that game now work at Counterplay Games. That said, game developers always borrow successful features from one another. But things should make sense for that game.
I think we can expect various challenges. These might be themed to the various realms we encounter in the game; Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and the Spirit Realm. Since Godfall has over 90 different enemies divided over these themes. A fighting arena or raid themed to these realms would make sense. It’s a relatively “easy” way to throw increasingly tougher enemies at you and reward you with end-game loot.
Counterplay Games is currently focused on the development of the main game. There haven’t been any announcements regarding DLC of any kind. However, it wouldn’t surprise me if there will be DLC.
Gearbox Software has a good track record of delivering downloadable content and they have helped other studios to properly release DLC as well.
