Whereas in Arcane’s game, as denied The developer is quick to admit these are hard to define, as they’re built as a mix of genres and an overlapping mass of systems, its co-op vampire hunting game Redfall finally coming into focus. It also has a release date: May 2, 2023.
in the last live stream about red fallArkane focuses on moment-to-moment gameplay, how guns work, some of the skills you can unlock, and how you can cooperate with other players to combine abilities against your vampire foes. Huh. But in this most recent live stream, Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct, Arkane took a step back to talk about your overarching purpose in an Xbox Series X game.
Your mission is simple: clear Redfall City of all Bloodsuckers and their friends.
This may seem like a straightforward goal, but in practice, there is more to it. For a start, the city of Redfall isn’t the only one with a vampire problem. Human cults have taken up residence in the community, capturing survivors and feeding them to bloodsuckers. It’s a kind of hero worship for the cultists, trying to get on the good side of the fang-toothed menace and gain favor with the vampire gods.
To rid the town of vampires and cultists, you’ll need to go neighborhood by neighborhood, eliminating vampire nests and cultist operations. Eventually, when you’ve wreaked enough havoc, you’ll need to kill a vampire underboss. These are souped-up vampires equipped with special abilities that you’ll only encounter in those boss fights.
In each neighborhood, you’ll find a safe house in which you can set up shop. Arkane doesn’t go into much detail about what you can do in these locations, though hopefully, they’re more than good fast travel and respawn spots.
When you kill an underboss, you’ll claim their skull, which acts as a key of sorts. Collect enough skulls and you unlock a fight with one of the vampire gods, and I don’t know why other than to say that they’re a big bloodsucker. they’re kind of big i think i might have to play red fall Eventually in co-op, even though you can complete the entire game in single-player.
I’ll decide if I want to get closer to alone time against the Vamps, but at least I can decide now, because red fall Release date is not far away. I just have to wait till 2nd May. And, of course, since it’ll be on Game Pass on day one, I don’t even need to convince my friends to pick up a copy. We can boot it just by whispering.
