The UK PEGI rating board has rated Godfall for PS5 console exclusive for PS4.
Although the game has yet to be announced as coming to PS4, Sony had already confirmed that Godfall will remain a PS5 exclusive until May 21, 2021, which could give us some indication of when we might see the game arrive on PS4.
Unsurprisingly, there have been no changes to the game rankings between the PS5 and the PS4, and PEGI confirms that the latter will also be considered unsuitable for players under the age of 16 and will describe it as an “action role-playing game” in which the player takes on the role of the last of the Valorian knights who must travel through various kingdoms to avoid an apocalyptic event ”(via: TwistedVoxel
He says that the game’s “realistic depictions of violence towards human characters” is the reason a 16+ rating has been applied. Interestingly, the PEGI site did not give any indication that there are similar plans to port it to Xbox consoles at the moment and of course it is already available for PC.
Gearbox’s Looter-slasher was one of the first officially revealed PS5 games, the first physical PS5 game made, and one of the first games we played on the new console as a PS5 launch title. Yet despite being so closely associated with the PS5, it was released at the same time on PC, and it looks like it will eventually land on Microsoft’s competitor’s next-gen console. We recently learned a few details about how Godfall leverages the PS5 DualSense controller, haptics, and ultra-fast SSD, so it might be interesting to see how it compares on Xbox Series X.
While some PS5 games are cross-generation PlayStation exclusives, others like Godfall have timed exclusivity offers awaiting release on other console families, and others remain true next-gen PS5 exclusives. Demon’s Souls is one example, and we recently learned that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will skip the current generation and launch exclusively on PS5.
