Arkane was also present at the Xbox Developer Direct event to demonstrate his Redfallshown with a trailer gameplay and, finally, with a release date set for May 2, 2023.
The video discussed several components of the game, starting with a look at the playable character, each with its own unique abilities and abilities, and a discussion on Redfall's particular island as the adventure setting.
The game is a first-person shooter RPG game that combines the usual FPS gameplay with some special abilities given by the different characters, transforming it into a "Hero Shooter" style hybrid.
In the teaser you can also see some sections of the story's missions, which take us around Redfall, as he attempts to restore connection to the outside world, save the survivors, and in general try to escape the nightmare in which the island is plunged and suddenly invaded by vampires and other types of creatures.
Redfall is available in single-player, but also in cooperative multiplayer, with the latter mode proving particularly suitable for the combined use of the various characters' abilities. The island is a vast open world that may be explored more or less freely, with the possibility of expanding new paths as the character progresses.
A nest, which is one of the most dangerous places ever, and other places where strange peculiarities and metaphysical events have occurred in connection with the supernatural invasion in progress are shown in the various settings and game situations.
A large part of the video is also dedicated to character customization, with each fighter having a vast skill tree with which to monitor progress, upgrade, and unlock new abilities, as well as a vast arsenal that may be greatly modified at will depending on needs.
While we therefore recall that Redfall will be released on PC and Xbox Series X|S on May 2, 2023, and available on Xbox Game Pass from the start.
