Focus Home Interactive and Spiders brought a new trailer to Gamescom 2019 for GreedFall, introducing the Companions aspect of the game. As part of the storyline, you'll get a couple of people from different factions who can accompany you on your journey. Kind of like how Mass Effect works by bringing in specific people who have different skills for different jobs. You'll use that to help navigate around the island and take on different aspects of the story. Enjoy the trailer for as we wait for the game to come out on September 10th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
How you deal with new situations as an explorer and diplomat will define your hero's story, and the company you choose to keep plays a big part in that. Each of the companions you meet belongs to one of GreedFall's many factions or guilds, and these organizations all have their own ambitions and prejudices, so think through your actions carefully.
Beyond the influence of their faction's goals, each companion has their own personal quests, too. Ignore them for too long, and they may choose to leave you. Help them, and you could have an ally – or lover – for life. Your companions will notice what you say and do, so consider their reactions before committing to a decision.
Be mindful when picking which two companions to bring with you, as well: each has their own special skills to offer. If you suspect a challenging fight ahead, for example, consider taking Coin Guard mercenary Kurt, who can be kitted out as a tough front-line warrior. But be careful when negotiating with a faction one of your companions is antagonistic against — your choices will shape not only the world of GreedFall, but also the lives of those in it.
