The Xbox and PC exclusive title will only be released next year
From the same developers as Dishonored and Prey, Redfall Vampires will be the main threatDifferent from Arkane Studios’ other game offerings. A new trailer reveals these creatures and some of what they’re capable of.
The trailer is released in celebration of Halloween and features bloodsuckers, in various forms, actions, as well as pumpkins, graveyards and horrors to leave everything in the atmosphere of a typical American party in the country where the game takes place.
Redfall is one of the big Xbox (and PC) exclusives and was revealed in June during the Xbox Showcase, part of this year’s Summer Game Festival. Originally, the game was slated for a 2022 release, but was eventually pushed back to next year alongside Starfield, another great Microsoft exclusive, both under Bethesda’s care.
“Redfall is an open-world cooperative first-person shooter developed by Arkane Austin, the award-winning team behind Prey and Dishonored. Building on Arkane’s legacy of carefully crafted worlds and immersive simulations, Redfall brings the developer’s signature gameplay to this narrative. – A focused action-shooter game.”
What we know about Redfall so far
The game is the most ambitious among the titles developed by Arkane Studios. Announcing the game’s delay, studio director Harvey Smith said:
“Hey guys, as you probably saw, we decided to delay the release of Redfall. The team needs more time to bring the game to life. Thank you so much for your support. Redfall is our most ambitious game yet. And we can’t wait to see it coming soon.”
Despite the focus on multiplayer co-op, Redfall will also deliver a “classic Arkane experience,” according to the studio director. “Redfall is designed so that you can play the campaign alone and not have bots for other characters, you’re just on your own,” Smith explains.
If you choose to play with others, campaign progress in co-op will occur only for the host of the match, but character evolution will be preserved for all players in the session.
Redfall will launch next year exclusively for Xbox Series X|S and PC, in addition to Game Pass on day one.
Microsoft plans to release at least 5 first-party games by June 2023
