Godfall Won't Have Any Offline Modes, PS Plus Subscription Is a Must

Godfall will require a persistent internet connection on PS5 and PC even if you play it solely.

October 5, 2020

According to the official page of Godfall on the PlayStation website, players will need to have a persistent online connection while playing the game, which obviously requires a PS Plus subscription as well.

As revealed before, Godfall features a drop-in/drop-out co-op mode throughout the whole story-driven campaign experience, allowing you to team-up quickly with up to two other players and continue missions in a skilled crew rather than being a lone warrior. Obviously, you will need to be online and have an active PlayStation Plus subscription to be able to switch into co-op mode, but the recent details from the game’s PlayStation page reveal that the requirements above will be needed even if you decide to play on your own. Simply put, Godfall requires an online connection during your whole playtime, similar to games like Destiny 2 and The Division 2.


Godfall is one of the anticipated launch titles for PS5, developed by Counterplay Games with an extreme focus on next-gen hardware. Visually, Godfall is surely one of the best looking games that will arrive in November this year. It’s yet to be seen how the game will use the unique features of PS5 to deliver a true next-gen experience, but it really looks nice in the gameplay footage and trailers.

Counterplay Games is mostly known for its creative debut, Duelyst, that received mostly favorable reviews from both fans and media. Unfortunately, the game’s servers have been shut down forever a few months earlier as the developers are trying to deliver their new project on November 12th.

So, regarding the studio’s latest project, Godfall is expected to deliver entertaining gameplay with some creative elements. Make sure to check out some of the combat footage from the game if you aren’t familiar with the gameplay mechanics of Godfall. Also, the game received a story trailer recently, introducing the story’s antagonist.
