In September 2019 developer Spiders and publisher Focus Home released GreedFall (opens in new tab), a fantasy RPG inspired by 17th century colonialism. Though it didn't set the world on fire, its mixture of faction conflict, moral choice, and romanceable companions filled the Old BioWare-shaped hole in many players' lives. As our reviewer Lauren Morton said (opens in new tab), "If Dragon Age is a veteran gone on sabbatical, GreedFall is keeping its seat warm without making a mess of the office in its absence."

GreedFall has gone on to sell over a million copies and will be getting a new expansion. It's coming as part of a partnership with publisher Nacon, coinciding with new console ports for PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. The announcement (opens in new tab) doesn't detail what the expansion will be about, though it does mention Focus Home Interactive will be in charge of publishing "the upcoming additional content and expansion". That "additional content" note suggests there might be some smaller DLC or updates coming to GreedFall as well, which only has the one bit of DLC available at the moment—an Adventurer's Gear pack containing the preorder bonus weapons and outfit.

GreedFall is on sale right now for $19.99 at both Steam (opens in new tab) and GOG (opens in new tab) as part of the Steam Autumn Sale (opens in new tab) and the GOG Black Friday Sale (opens in new tab).

Spiders' next game is SteelRising, which asks the question: What if the French Revolution, but robots? (opens in new tab)
