Spiders have been on an interesting journey since the days of Mars: War Logs. The French studio has had a history with some janky RPGs, but their recent hit has propelled the studio forward enough to warrant their first ever sequel (well, actually a sort of prequel) with Greedfall 2 officially announced and launching on PC in 2024.

According to the developers, GreedFall 2 will mostly improve upon the mechanics of the previous, maintaining focus on player choice as well as story, but also adding “new gameplay in the form of more tactical combat.” So if you were a fan of the previous entry, or were a little disappointed by some aspects of it, Greedfall 2 may tickle your fancy a bit more.

While we were working on Steelrising, our love of the GreedFall universe never faded, and so we are thrilled to be returning to it,” said Jehanne Rousseau, Founder and Director at Spiders. “In this new chapter, players will explore the old continent with its bigger and more diverse environments. They will meet new companions and new factions, and I hope they will have unforgettable adventures.

It seems a bit odd to announce the new title so early ahead in time, but I guess the games industry has learnt very little about announcing games too early. Additionally, the Summer of Gaming News is only a few weeks away, so it’s doubly odd to announce it now. Still though, the window of 2024 is quite large, so maybe Greedfall 2 will launch sometime earlier in the year.

Spiders is of course currently working on Steelrising, due to launch later this year. Their first take on the soulslike genre certainly looks like it has potential, and the fact that Spiders is able to work on both games at the same time shows just how far the studio has come since the breakout success of the originalGreedFall.

What do you think? Are you excited for Greedfall 2? Have you ever played the first one? WHat did you think of it? WHat improvements are you hoping to see in the sequel? And how many games from Spiders have you played before? Let us know your thoughts!

The game feels like an early 2000's RPG, so it was enjoyable even with its flaws. They would have to do a lot more work than the first one to get the second one to do well. I suggest people play the first even if its onlye once.

Definitely interested. Didn't know what to expect when I went into first game and I ended liking it. Yes, it is flawed, but it overall still comes out as good game. In a way it is flawed gem for some of us. So I definitely hope that they will make sequel great and improve on what they did in first game. But first game really does show how you don't need to have "flawless" game to still make it good, especially as first entry into a series. I definitely was also worried it won't be good enough to greenlight sequel, so I am glad I was wrong.

I went into Greedfall with pretty low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised and ended up enjoying it a bit. It was definitely janky at times, but I'm looking forward to seeing what and how they improve the game.

Greedfall was a good game, but I don't feel like I want to play another one.
