What is Redfall About?
Grab some friends and start blasting those vampires to kingdom come.
Yet another Xbox and PC exclusive is on the way, and this one, called Redfall, looks like it’s going to be a blast! Redfall is a hectic open-world first-person shooter that can be played in single-player or online co-op. But what exactly is it? Well, we’re here to figure that out as we ask “What is Redfall About?”
Redfall features four playable characters to choose from, all with their own personality, skills, and abilities. It’s set in the city of Redfall, Massachusetts, where vampires have overrun the town after a science experiment went wrong. These vampires have somehow managed to blot out the sun and cut the citizens off from the outside world, so it’s up to you and your squad to explore and take them out. Your best option may be to combine your team’s strengths and work together; finding the best weapon loadouts and discovering the many ways of defeating the vampire menace being the main aims.
As for the aforementioned open-world, it features a once-bustling downtown area, a haunted forest, and a seaside boardwalk, among many other beautiful places. This game is also pretty gory and will have even the toughest of players squirming in their seats at times, with lots of blood and explosions to experience throughout its action-filled runtime. Players can use characters like Jacob, who favours long-range attacks and comes equipped with a vampire eye that lets him turn invisible and Remi, who prefers the guns-a-blazing approach. Each of their abilities are upgradable, too, so that will keep you coming back for more.
While we still don’t know how much of this title will be related to the developer’s other franchises, we can at least expect some continuity because of Arkane Studios’ prior history. Deathloop was confirmed to be in the same universe as Dishonored, so the team will likely do the same with Redfall. After all, Redfall presents a reality where science and the supernatural coexist, and some non-intrusive references to other titles would make it feel right at home.
