The Redfall game announcement came as a surprise today at the Bethesda and Xbox showcase. The new title comes from Arkane Austin, the award-winning team behind Prey and Dishonored. The open-world co-op shooter game will arrive sometime in summer 2022.
The vampire and protagonist character designs look like they will have a fun and unique interaction and have us looking forward to eventually seeing gameplay footage. We’ve gathered the important details from their website below:
- WELCOME TO REDFALL
- The quaint island town of Redfall, Massachusetts, is under siege by a legion of vampires who have blocked out the sun and cut the island off from the outside world. Trapped with a handful of survivors against diabolical enemies threatening to bleed the town dry, choose your hero from a diverse roster, grouping up with others to create the perfect team of vampire slayers.
- SLAY TOGETHER
- Redfall blends single and multiplayer options seamlessly, allowing players to venture into the darkness alone or squad up with up to three friends for four-player co-op. Teammates can try different hero loadouts and combine their strengths to overcome the vampire legion and their brood of maniacal followers.
- REIGN IN BLOOD
- Redfall’s vampires aren’t your typical bloodsuckers. They were created after a scientific experiment went horribly wrong and are continuing to evolve. After their transformation, some vampires develop powerful abilities and grow into bigger and badder vampires. But they’re not the only thing standing in your way – players will also face off against the human cultists who worship the island’s hungry new leadership with the hopes of joining their ranks.
