Godfall Is Getting Matchmaking Five Months After Launch
Today, Counterplay Games announced it will finally bring matchmaking services to its “looter slasher,” Godfall. This comes as a bit of a surprise, as its developers have been relatively quiet since the game’s launch alongside PlayStation 5 last November. The matchmaking update doesn’t have a release date at this time, but Counterplay says, “More details will be shared over the coming months,” meaning we’ll have to wait for it to go live.
As we continue to monitor & implement changes based on your feedback, one thing was very clear…. We are excited to announce that we are working toward implementing matchmaking into Godfall! More details will be shared over the coming months as we work toward the expansion! ⚔️ https://t.co/qzebvJwsik

Out of nowhere, Nintendo announced that Pac-Man 99 launches today, April 7, exclusively for Nintendo Switch Online members. If you’re a member, it will be available at no additional cost. This, much like previous games that have launched via the subscription service, is a battle royale game, wherein you must eliminate other players to be the last one standing.
