Redfall from Arkane has been a bit of a mystery to me, but after seeing over 10-minutes of gameplay from the Xbox and Bethesda Developer_Direct I'm now fully sold on its solo and co-op vampire hunting action. From open-world exploration to cool abilities and weapons and taking down vampire gods, it's coming May 2, 2023, to PC and Xbox Series X|S.
And day one to Xbox Game Pass.
Here's the full deep dive where we get to see some of the missions, safehouse system, weapons, and how it all works in terms of clearing out vampires from sections of Redfall. Taking down mini-bosses to collect their skulls to use as keys to taking on vampire gods looks awesome, as do the skill trees and various abilities that draw on classic Arkane mechanics found in the likes of Dishonored and Deathloop.
Once the very picture of Smalltown, USA, the island town of Redfall used to be known for its quaint streets, breezy boardwalks, and charming neighborhoods. Then the vampires moved in and ruined everything. First, they eclipsed the sun and pushed back the tides. Then they started turning all the island’s inhabitants into either minions for their army… or food.
Experience Redfall solo or with up to three friends and face off against the bloodsuckers holding the island hostage. In signature Arkane style, you will choose your path across the island and through the vampire masses as you discover what caused this plague of bloodsuckers and put an end to the threat. Explore a beautifully hand-crafted world packed with detail and shine a light on the island’s darkest corners as you fight to uncover the vampires’ secrets. Choose from a roster of heroes with unique, upgradeable skills and gear them up with customizable weaponry found all over the island. Do whatever it takes to build the perfect squad of vampire slayers.
