During today's Inside Xbox Gamescom presentation, Spiders showed off a new trailer for its upcoming 17th century RPG called Greedfall. The focus of this three-and-a-half minute trailer is on the companion system, which looks to deliver plenty of interesting side plots and unexpected elements depending on which helper the player chooses. As a diplomat on the island of Teer Fardee, you are tasked to make many social decisions, many of which play out through choice.
The companion you take with you can change the outcome of things, as they can fight, talk, and journey with you. During dialogues and diplomacy, they will give you advice, and if they don't like how you are handling things, may take their actions into their own hands – one character will even bring bloodshed.
Greedfall is slated to release on September 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more on the game's fantasy setting, check out our E3 preview.
