Turns Out It Wasn't Godfall PlayStation 5 Footage After All
Yesterday, we reported on alleged leaked footage from Godfall, the upcoming PlayStation 5 launch title from Counterplay and Gearbox. While the leaker — and we — never mentioned this was definitely PS5 footage, some did wonder whether it was showing off next-gen software. Turns out, it wasn't.
Gearbox's Randy Pitchford and Counterplay responded to the trailer on Twitter, both saying variations of the same thing.
Hey everyone! We can confirm that the circulating trailer is year-old PC footage used as part of an internal presentation. We are energized by your excitement and look forward to showing you just how far this game has come. Stay tuned for a more detailed look soon! âï¸— Godfall (@PlayGodfall) January 21, 2020
The footage was only ever of the PC version to begin with and wasn't meant a kind of goal to hit for the team.
Wow! I can confirm that the Godfall “trailer” is actually year-old PC footage used as part of an internal presentation at Counterplay. I’m pumped by the reactions and I cannot wait for you see how far the game has come and how awesome this game looks and plays on Playstation 5! pic.twitter.com/m9CbXUvZwP— Randy Pitchford (@DuvalMagic) January 21, 2020
Both Counterplay and Pitchford suggested the game has come a long way since the trailer from last year and are excited to show off all the changes.
This all makes sense. The leak offered nothing definitive about the footage other than saying it was from last year.
So, now that that's out of the way, we still have no tangible idea what the PS5 is capable of and what it might consist of other than spruced up hardware. Backwards compatibility? Maybe. Ray tracing? Definitely. Anything else? Hopefully, we'll find out soon.
