Developer by Arkane Austin, Redfall is a story-driven, open-world FPS playable solo or with a team of up to four-players in co-op.
It sees players battling to defeat a legion of vampires who have cut the quaint island town of Redfall, Massachusetts off from the outside world.
The game’s launch trailer, which is viewable above, is set to a new cover version of Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun.
Following a delay from a previously planned 2022 launch, Bethesda owner Microsoft recently announced a Redfall release date of May 2 for Xbox Series X/S and PC, alongside details of a special edition and pre-order bonuses.
Redfall won’t include a 60 FPS Performance mode on Xbox when the game is released. Instead, it will be added via a game update “at a later date”.
At launch, the console versions of the game will include a Quality mode only, with Xbox Series X supporting 4K 30 FPS and Xbox Series S offering 1440p 30 FPS.
A persistent online connection will be required for single player and co-op at launch, although Arkane recently confirmed it’s “looking into” removing the requirement for solo players.
Players who pre-order Redfall or play the game with Xbox Game Pass will receive the Vampire Hunter Pack. It will include the exclusive Grim Tide Shotgun, which grants 20% increased damage for eight seconds after killing an enemy, a Polar Vortex multi-weapon skin, and a Blood Ravager Stake weapon attachment.
