Grab this before it gets a price tag
Publisher and developer Landfall has announced a game that, given the date, would seem like an April Fool’s joke. It is not. Knightfall: A Daring Journey is very real and very free for just one day.
Out now on Steam, Knightfall: A Daring Journey is a multiplayer game where players can team up to ride against other knights. The goal is the rose, which is waiting at the end of the journey. Every knight couple – you can either party or be matched – competes for it.
But when the night comes, the cold comes too. Knights must take shelter in villages, which means that you play not only for a trophy but for a bed. As the journey progresses, fewer and fewer villages will appear. And those who come first get their choice of weapons and healing.
Did I mention that your horse can drive?
It’s April 1st and all, yes, I’ve verified that this is a real and playable game. And it’s actually quite fun! Landfalls are not a waste of time when it comes to creating interesting games, whether it’s skipping vehicle chaos Cluster truck or the well-known Exactly Battle Simulator.
What I’m digging about Knightfall is its fun mix of clumsy weapons and fast horses. I had to lead my pistol shots a bit, in a way that felt heavy. It evoked some memories of Sea of thieves that way, plus the horse racing is really fun to call in.
If you’re in pain for something to play with a friend this weekend, you can do much worse than that Knightfall. And anyway, you probably should redeem it on Steam here today. Once it’s April 2, the price goes from free up to $ 5.99. Still just a little change for a pretty fun multiplayer horseback ride, but hey, free is free.
