Publisher Bethesda Softworks and developer Arkane Studios have revealed a new trailer for the anticipated Redfall, releasing on Xbox Series X|S and PC on May 2, 2023 (pre-order now at Amazon). The game will be available to play on Xbox Game Pass at launch.
You can watch “The World of Redfall” trailer using the player below. Once the very picture of Smalltown, USA, the island town of Redfall used to be known for its quaint streets, breezy boardwalks and charming neighborhoods.
Then the vampires moved in and ruined everything. Overrun by bloodthirsty vampires who cast the town into darkness by eclipsing the sun, Redfall has turned into a bloodbath.
The vampires have pushed back the sea from the land and made getting off the island impossible. As the town descends into chaos, the people of Redfall (those who have survived) have no choice but to fight back against the vampire threat.
Redfall features a stunning and spooky open world and the evocative environmental storytelling that Arkane is known for.
In the game, you’ll protect the remaining survivors by taking the island back, one neighborhood at a time. Explore trippy psychic spaces that twist the laws of reality.
Face off against vampires, cultists and mercenaries, or just watch as they tear each other apart. Danger lurks around every corner and it’s up to you to clean up the streets.
Take on a variety of missions throughout the open world and face down terrifying vampire underbosses to make the town a little safer for the survivors.
And while you’re busy being the friendly neighborhood vampire hunter, you’ll also be gathering intel about the mysteries surrounding the island and its new vampire overlords.
Intel that will eventually lead you to the vampire gods controlling everything…
You can experience Redfall solo or with up to three friends and face off against the bloodsuckers holding the island hostage.
In signature Arkane style, you will choose your path across the island and through the vampire masses as you discover what caused this plague of bloodsuckers and put an end to the threat.
Explore a beautifully hand-crafted world packed with detail and shine a light on the island’s darkest corners as you fight to uncover the vampires’ secrets.
Choose from a roster of heroes with unique, upgradeable skills and gear them up with customizable weaponry found all over the island.
