Arkane’s redfall reappeared at Xbox & Bethesda’s 2022 Games Showcase. This new trailer gave players a closer look at the shooter gameplay, as well as new details about the eclectic cast of vampire hunters.
redfall is an upcoming first-person shooter that puts players in control of one of four different characters who must travel through vast environments and survive against a vampire treasure. It can be compared to a hero shooter as each character has unique abilities created to face the bloodsucking threat.
The characters are the undead deadeye, Jacob Boyer, who has the ability to go invisible and snipe, Remi De La Rosa, who can use a robotic dog partner, Devinder Crousley, who has special cryptid hunting tools, and Layla Ellison, who has telekinetic powers. †
The vampires within redfall were made in a scientific experiment gone wrong. These nightcrawlers also evolve into different variations, a bit like the zombies from the Left 4 Dead series.
This highly anticipated title appeared on Xbox & Bethesda’s 2021 Games Showcase last year and was delayed to 2023 this year. Bethesda stated that the game is set in an “ever-changing open world that responds to your choices and actions.” Co-creative director Ricardo Bare also stated that the title’s focus would remain on deep world building and inventive game mechanics.
Although it’s been a year since we last heard from red fall, there is no final release date yet. However, Xbox confirms that the game will be released in 2023 for Xbox consoles, PC and the cloud. It’s also the first day of Xbox Game Pass.
