A few hours ago, WindowsCentral confirmed last week’s rumor about Redfall now targeting an early May release date. They also added that some versions of the game can grant early access to the game up to a week early (which means late April), similar to Forza Horizon 5 Premium Edition.
Redfall was originally set to release in the summer of 2022 before being delayed to the first half of 2023 alongside Bethesda’s Starfield. Developed by Arkane Austin (Dishonored, Prey), it’s the first game from the studio designed from the ground up for a co-op experience. Up to four players will be able to join in a session of this open-world first-person shooter, though creative director Harvey Smith promises that Redfall will still be an immersive sim experience similar to that of Arkane when playing solo. The game will be exclusive to Xbox Series S | X and Windows PC, and will be available on Day One for Game Pass subscribers.
The town of Redvale Island, Massachusetts is under siege by a group of vampires who have blocked out the sunlight and cut off the citizens from the outside world. Explore the open world and immerse yourself in a deep story campaign as you uncover the mystery behind the vampire’s appearance. Ally with a handful of survivors against creatures that threaten to drain the city.
Created by scientific experiments gone wrong and gifted with psychic abilities, the vampires in Redfall will challenge you and your team to create. You’ll choose from a team of diverse heroes – each with their own personality abilities – to take on the Vampire Legion and their maniacal minions.
DEVINDER CROUSLEY: Cretologist and aspiring inventor. Armed with weapons of his own making, he is on a mission to prove himself.
LAYLA ELLISON: A biomedical engineering student who trained at a research facility, where something went wrong, causing her to have extreme telekinetic abilities.
Remy de la Rosa: A remarkable combat engineer who has spent her life on the front lines. With the help of her robot kit, Bribón, she is determined to help save the survivors of Redfall.
Jacob Boyer: Ex-military sniper turned private contractor. The strange events in Redfall have left Jacob with a mysterious vampire eye and a spectral raven not far from his side.
