Arkane was also present at the Xbox Developer Direct event to demonstrate his Redfallshown, which had a trailer gameplay, and, finally, a release date, which was scheduled for May 2, 2023.
The video illustrated various aspects of the game, beginning with a brief introduction to the playable characters, each with their own unique abilities and abilities, and a brief description of Redfall's context, the particular island that the adventure takes place on.
The game is a first-person shooter RPG game that combines the usual FPS gameplay with a few particularities given by the different abilities of the players, transforming it into a "Hero Shooter" style hybrid.
The trailer includes also images of several scenes from the story that take us around Redfall trying to reconnect with the outside world, rescue survivors, and in general trying to escape the nightmare in which the island is plunged and suddenly invaded by vampires and dark creatures of various kinds.
The whole island is a vast open space that may be explored more or less freely as the characters progress.
A nest, which is one of the most dangerous places ever, and other locations where strange singularities and metaphysical events have occurred as a result of the supernatural invasion are seen.
A significant part of the video is dedicated to the customization of fighters, each with a large skill tree with which to set progress, upgrade, and unlock new abilities, as well as a vast arsenal that may be tweaked at will.
Although we are unaware that Redfall will be released on PC and Xbox Series X|S on May 2, 2023, and will be available on Xbox Game Pass from the start.
