Still coming at you via Arkane Austin in 2023
Remember Redfall? It’s been roughly a year since it was announced with a mostly cutscene-heavy trailer, but now we have more clear-cut footage of how the game will actually play thanks to the Xbox and Bethesda showcase.
The trailer is lengthy, clocking in at nearly six minutes. In it, we’re immediately shown actual gameplay, with a player character raiding an attic and taking out some vampires. Then it shifts into a more multiplayer focus, showcasing a ton of magic and personality-driven twists on the typical squad shooter formula. It’s pretty effective! I wasn’t super into Redfall when it was first revealed, but now I can see the appeal. The color really sells it, since it blows a lot of the grimdark/gritty similar shooters out of the water.
Here’s a reminder of what it’s all about:
“Redfall is an open-world, single-player and co-op FPS 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.”
Redfall is still due out in 2023 on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Naturally it’ll be a Game Pass game.
