    June 30 enhanced version of GreedFall involves PS5 having an expansion

    Hi everyone, I’m Jehanne Rousseau, CEO and lead writer at Spiders, here to give you some tips if you are jumping into GreedFall for the first time, or if you are returning to Teer Fradee to discover a new area full of intrigues in The De Vespe Conspiracy, our brand new expansion releasing on June 30. For those of you on PS5, we’re also releasing GreedFall and GreedFall: Gold Edition – including base game and new expansion – bringing 4K UHD resolution, enhanced performance, and fast loading. The de Vespe Conspiracy is a full story arc with player choice and an epic conclusion, featuring new characters, enemies, gear, and areas to explore. We can’t wait for you to sink your teeth into this brand new journey. Without further ado, here are seven key things to know for your journey in GreedFall and its DLC. Play your way GreedFall is a freeform RPG experience before anything else. Besides your family name, anything is customizable, including your gender, looks, starting talents, and skills. As you venture deeper into the island and its web of quests and storylines, unlock more than 80 skills to combine to create your playstyle. Choose to specialize in weapons for fighting in close combat, magic that is as lethal as it is varied, or even traps to control the battlefield. Your talents also affect the way you engage with the island, be it through diplomacy, crafting or your ability to find treasure in the wild. Exploration is (still) key The Island of Teer Fradee is full of wilderness and different environments to explore. Cities, forests, mountains, and now an ancient volcanic land in the DLC, all provide their share of characters, tribes, quests, creatures and intrigues. Don’t be afraid to embrace your adventurer’s spirit and set out in the wild to find equipment, loot, magic upgrades and all kinds of surprises.  Three’s a party As you progress in the story, up to five companions will be allowed to join you on your journey. Only two of them, however, can be in your party at once. Choose wisely as each of them has their own archetypal style, links to specific factions, opinions and as a consequence will impact both combat and diplomacy differently. Experiment and work on developing your relationship with them because who knows, early friendships might blossom into something else entirely. Also, find out more about your companions’ lore in hidden documents scattered around the DLC region. In the wild, keep your eyes (and ears) open When out journeying in the various regions of Teer Fradee, learn to recognize the creatures and tribes that can present a threat to your party and plan accordingly. In the De Vespe expansion for example, a previously volcanic area is now home to a fierce species of predators: The Egsregatt. This feline creature is as furtive as it is deadly, capable of pouncing on its victims from a great distance, or even dropping in on them from high reaching trees. Even if no Egsregatt is in sight, don’t assume your party can lower its guard. New difficulty setting: Discovery In GreedFall, you can change the difficulty setting at any time, ranging from the hardcore and stat-heavy RPG experience, to the new Discovery mode that allows you to enjoy the adventure without having to develop your character’s skills and equipment. Your character instantly gains increased resistances and damage stats, becoming almost invincible and able to dispatch the majority of enemies with ease. Perfect for those who wish to experience the adventure without constraints. Be prepared against Aurélia’s Spadassins In the DLC’s story arc, you will have to deal with a new character’s personal bodyguards: The Spadassins.These fearsome foes have unique abilities that involve smokescreens, magical displacement, and poison. They will never fight fair and will require sharp wits and even sharper combat skills to be defeated. Think twice before engaging them in battle. If you do manage to defeat them, however, you might come across a range of unique new armor and weapons to craft and discover, some of it themed around the Spadassins and the De Vespe family. Many choices, multiple endings On Teer Fradee, conflicts between factions are neither unusual nor new, constantly threatening native clans who used to live in harmony, undisturbed. The diplomatic game is affected by faith, economy and even culture. Depending on your talent choices, different actions and quests will have different outcomes, culminating in multiple possible endings to the main game experience, and two very different ones in the DLC. We hope these few tips will serve new and returning GreedFall players alike. We’re thrilled to welcome you all back into the mysterious world of GreedFall, enhanced for PlayStation 5 with a free upgrade and save migration for existing PS4 owners. The upgraded Gold Edition is also enhanced with improved visuals, resolution, and performance, and includes The De Vespe Conspiracy expansion. For existing GreedFall owners, the expansion is also available as a standalone purchase. See you in Teer Fradee on June 30.
