At today’s Developer_Direct presentation from Xbox & Bethesda, it was announced that Redfall will finally be released on May 2, 2023. Alongside the release date, the Redfall trailer showcased during the event was 11 minutes long, with a deep dive on gameplay elements and the world of Redfall.
Redfall is being developed by Arkane Austin, being their return to the FPS space. It is a co-op shooter with a bold narrative, which can be played with friends or alone. A description of the title is available below, thanks to its official website:
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.
The release date for Redfall poses a question as to when Starfield might launch. Originally scheduled for 1H 2023, it will be interesting to see if it hits in June or not. During today’s presentation, the following updates were also shared:
- Minecraft Legends Launches on April 18, 2023
