Godfall requires an always-online connection on PS5 and PC – VG247

The official PlayStation Store page for Godfall has actually confirmed that the game needs a web connection to play, and you should be checked in at all times.

The “Online Play Required” label can be seen on the website. It’s the same badge you’ll see on video games like Destiny and Fortnite that need you to have a consistent web connection in order to access the video game’s functions.

The main Godfall Twitter account later on verified that the video game does need an internet connection in order to play.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, the page also confirms that “PS Plus Required for Online Play”, something that isn’t a shock to anyone that frequently plays multiplayer games on PlayStation.

The huge bulk of other loot-based video games also require an always-online connection: it allows the developer higher control in preventing hacks and exploits that can reverse the economy of their equipment.

It stands to reason that whenever you get a loot drop, the video game will do an online check in order to make sure you aren’t cheating the system– suggesting that character development and so on will be saved server-side so players can’t modify their conserve files.

Godfall, the PlayStation 5 and PC looter-slasher, will require a constant web connection– even if you’re playing in single-player mode.
