Redfall: No Arkane Game Without A Story [VIDEO]

A game from the makers of Arx Fatalis, Dark Messiah of Might, and Magic or Dishonored would look silly if there weren’t a deeper storyline to go along with the four-player co-op gameplay!

 

Here’s the game’s overview: “Redfall is an open-world, co-op first-person shooter from Arkane Austin, the award-winning team behind Prey and Dishonored. Continuing Arkane’s legacy of carefully crafted worlds and immersive sims, Redfall brings the studio’s signature gameplay to this story-driven action shooter. The island town of Redfall, Massachusetts, is under siege by a legion of vampires who have blocked out the sun and cut the citizens off from the outside world. Explore the open world and immerse yourself in a deep story campaign as you unravel the mystery behind the vampires’ appearance—Ally with a handful of survivors against the creatures threatening to bleed the town dry. Redfall is a true Arkane experience set in a rich world that blends the familiar with the extraordinary. Redfall’s open world is handcrafted by the master-level designers behind Prey’s Talos I space station and Dishonored’s Dunwall. From the town’s once-bustling downtown and the haunted forest to the decimated seaside boardwalk and beyond, you will fight through cultist outposts and supernatural psychic spaces as you piece together Redfall’s many mysteries.

Redfall blends single-player and multiplayer options seamlessly, allowing the player to venture into the darkness alone or to squad up for up to four-player co-op. Teammates can try different hero load-outs and combine their strengths to solve the vampire apocalypse creatively. You will collect an arsenal of specialized weaponry and customize your character with unique upgrades and abilities to suit your playstyle for guns blazing, stealth combat, and everything in between. Created by science experiments gone wrong and gifted with psychic abilities, Redfall’s vampires will challenge you and your squad to get creative. You will choose from a team of diverse heroes – each with their character-specific abilities—to overcome the vampire legion and their brood of maniacal followers.

Devinder Crousley is a cryptozoologist and aspiring inventor. Armed with weapons of his creation, he’s on a mission to prove himself. Layla Ellison is a biomedical engineering student who interned at a research facility where something went wrong, leaving her with intense telekinetic abilities. Remi de la Rosa is a brilliant combat engineer who has spent her life on the front lines. With the help of her robot cohort, Bribón, she’s determined to help rescue Redfall’s survivors. Jacob Boyer is an ex-military sharpshooter turned private contractor. Strange happenings on Redfall have left Jacob with a mysterious vampiric eye and a spectral raven that’s never far from his side.”

Redfall will be released on May 2 for Xbox Series and PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, Microsoft Store). It will also be available via Xbox Game Pass.
