Everything you need to know about Redfall is right here, right now. More or less anyway, time is funny on the internet so if the game’s already out when you’re reading this, it’s probably not all-encompassing, but we’re not Gods here at GMG, despite how we look, so you’ll have to forgive our lack of omnipotence.
Nevertheless, we’re here today to tell you more about the Redfall release date, Redfall gameplay, and show some Redfall trailers too. So, if you’re down bad for Arkane in general and don’t think vampires suck, then you’re likely going to be in for a treat when Redfall finally graces us with its presence.
When is the Redfall Release Date?
While Redfall was meant to release in 2022, that’s no longer the case. Instead, the only information we have about the new release date is that it’ll be during the first half of 2023. Normally, we’d assume any game listed as 2023 would come before April, because it helps make the financial year look good, but given that this specifically says the first half, it seems likely that there’s some uncertainty around how long the game will take to finish.
While all games are complicated, Arkane games have a reputation for being particularly involved, with their immersive sims often offering incredible deep content that can be approached from multiple angles and with many outcomes. While Redfall isn’t an immersive sim, it does go one further by including multiplayer, so we’re not surprised the game’s taking a while to perfect.
Redfall Gameplay – How Will it Play?
Redfall’s gameplay will have you playing as one of four different characters, each with their own skills and abilities, and making your way through a vampire-infested island. Jacob Boyer plays the role of a sniper, Remy De La Rosa is an engineer with a helpful robot, Devinder Crousley is a cryptid expert who seems to use a lot of tools like a lightning staff, and Layla Ellison is telekinetic.
While the enemies are undoubtedly meant to be stronger than you, you’ll be able to utilise a plethora of different items and weapons to burn them back to death. You’ll need to work together with the other characters to get through each of the areas, and will have to work using stealth and tactics to survive.
There’s undoubtedly an air of Left 4 Dead in the gameplay reveal trailer, so we’re expecting the campaign itself to be repeatable and replete with challenges, collectables, and reasons to replay it. Arkane also loves their special endings, so it’s possible you’ll need to do things in a specific order or complete hidden objectives to get the most out of the game.
Where can I watch a Redfall Trailer?
This is the 2022 showcase from the Xbox and Bethesda trailer, and it’s a fairly good look at what you can expect when playing Redfall. It shows off just over five minutes of footage, with some being identifiable as gameplay, although it’s fair to assume that things will change a lot between this trailer and when the game actually releases.
It also seems to show some more supernatural aspects to the world, with magical doors and warped scenery being all over the place. Arkane loves a bit of mind-bending level design, so we’re not all that shocked about this. There’s also a brief glimpse at what appears to be a talent tree along with an inventory management screen.
This means you’ll have a fair bit of control over how your character plays beyond just choosing which character you want. That always helps with a game’s longevity, and depending on how easy it is to adjust, could also mean you can build your character to compliment whatever style of team is needed for any given challenge.
