As part of today’s Xbox Developer_Direct event, Microsoft unveiled Arkane’s new Vampire Hunter FPS Redfall and announced its release date.
Redfall will release on May 2, 2023, which is the date that was leaked a while back. Redfall was originally set for a 2022 release before it was pushed back to 2023 along with Starfield.
As for the new gameplay footage, Arkane gave fans a fresh look at the island of Redfall, Massachusetts, the game’s fictional setting. The new gameplay footage showed off the fire station, which is a safe haven where players can undertake new missions.
One of the quests has players walk towards a lighthouse and fight vampires on the way there. One type of vampire shown in the video was the Shroud, a menacing creature that seems hard to take down. Taking down vampires angers the vampire gods, who then summon a different type of vampire to hunt down the players.
It was also shown in the Redfall gameplay video how players can approach combat scenarios in many ways, which should feel familiar to fans of previous Arkane games.
