Counterplay Games' upcoming hack and slash title Godfall will require an internet connection and PlayStation Plus subscription to play it, even if you are playing single-player, it's been confirmed by the publisher Gearbox.

Godfall, one of the upcoming next-gen games which will be a launch title for PlayStation 5, will require an internet connection and PlayStation Plus subscription to play it even if you don't plan to try the three-player co-op mode.

Many players feared that the game could be another "always-online" title after they found the wording on the game's PlayStation 5 store page, which stated that "online play [is] required". Some players contacted the official Godfall Twitter account for a statement and it looks like the game will indeed require an internet connection.

Godfall Twitter made it clear that the game is not a "service game" but still, it "does require an internet connection to play". This will certainly disappoint many fans who are not keen to spend extra money on PlayStation Plus subscription. Also, it's worth mentioning that Godfall will cost $70 on PlayStation 5 so this could turn out to be one pricey purchase for those who planned to get the game.

Godfall is officially hitting the shelves on November 12, 2020, for PlayStation 5 and PC. Xbox Series X | S release is yet to be confirmed but since the game is a timed PS5 exclusive, we assume it could also release on Microsoft's next-gen consoles in the near future.
