A new Godfall matchmaking feature is officially in development, but it's not going to be arriving right away — you may very well have to wait until sometime later this year to use it.
Godfall is a third-person hack n' slash game with colorful characters and even more colorful graphics. It's a boatload of fun and it has its fair share of multiplayer content, too. Unfortunately, there's no matchmaking in the game just yet — but that's going to be changing later this year.
"As we continue to monitor & implement changes based on your feedback, one thing was very clear[...]" read a tweet on the game's official account. "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!
The lack of Godfall matchmaking is not all that unusual for modern games, even when it comes to larger developers. Destiny 2, for example, doesn't have much in the way of matchmaking for its endgame content. Several innovative players have, however, created fan-made tools to help people find a good team to play some of the toughest challenges in the game.
When is the Godfall Matchmaking Release Date?
Unfortunately, a Godfall matchmaking release date has not yet been announced by the developer. That said, we can make a guess about when we can reasonably expect to see this new feature.
Today's tweet says that more details will be shared "over the coming months" while the team is developing the first paid expansion. That first big batch of paid content is currently expected to arrive sometime in the second quarter of 2021 — that means we'll get it by the end of June 2021 at the latest, assuming no delays.
Launching Godfall matchmaking at the same time as a paid expansion would certainly be a good way to get more people into the game. For now, there's still plenty of fun to be had and you can get the game on sale, too! You can buy Godfall via its official website for PC (via the Epic Games Store) or PS5 starting at $39.89 or your regional equivalent.
