Bethesda has confirmed that their upcoming game Redfall will require an internet connection for both single-player and multiplayer modes.
Bethesda has provided this update as a result of a Redfall Q&A thread. The answer to the question is, "Will playing Redfall require an internet connection for single-player as well as co-op?"
Even if players wish to do vampire-hunting alone, this will no longer be an option away from home.
When many new games adopt this attitude, it may come as no surprise that many developers have chosen to use DRM in an effort to prevent piracy and copyright infringement.
DRM games require an internet connection to operate. This information is useful for programmers, but it will also have an impact on how players interact with the game.
What additional wagering is required?
Players will require a Besthesda.net connection to play, according to the Q&A, but it is another required step to access Redfall. Only those who wish to try multiplayer will need an Xbox Gold subscription (currently £6.99 per month in the United Kingdom).
This news comes following a recent leak that revealed that Redfall was in 'rough shape.' According to an Xbox leaker, the game "probably should have more quality control," however, it is not yet perfect.
