A short snippet of gameplay from PlayStation 5 game Godfall has leaked, giving us a small peek at Sony’s first revealed next-generation game. 

The six-second video was leaked on Reddit, by a user who claims to own an unreleased trailer for the game. The footage seems to line up with the game’s previous reveal trailer released at The Game Awards 2019, which labelled it as a PlayStation 5 game. You can check out the footage below:

Godfall is a third-person action game that’s described as a ‘looter-slasher’. Unsurprisingly, the game is published by Gearbox Publishing, the company which also published the Borderlands series of looter-shooters. So - imagine Borderlands, but replace those guns for swords, and sci-fi setting for fantasy. 

The game is being developed by Counterplay Games, and has been confirmed for a PC release as well. Still, it’s interesting to see what a next-generation game actually looks like. We haven’t seen proper gameplay from Microsoft’s next-generation games like Halo Infinite and Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 yet - so it seems like Sony is a step ahead of Microsoft with this one.

Update: A full trailer for the game has leaked, with Counterplay Games confirming its authenticity - but noting that the footage is one year old
