Redfall, the upcoming first-person action game from Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Austin, is set to release on May 2, 2023. Redfall is an open-world, single-player, and co-op FPS that combines Arkane’s signature gameplay with a new story-driven action shooter.
Set in the island town of Redfall, Massachusetts, the game’s story follows the citizens who are cut off from the outside world due to a legion of vampires that have blocked out the sun. Players will take on the role of a group of survivors who must explore the open world, unravel the mystery behind the vampires’ appearance, and take back Redfall. The game offers both single and multiplayer options, with up to four players able to squad up and take on the vampire apocalypse together.

Redfall offers a true Arkane experience, with a richly designed open world that blends the familiar with the extraordinary. The town’s downtown, the haunted forest, the decimated seaside boardwalk, and beyond are all handcrafted by the master-level designers behind Prey’s Talos I space station and Dishonored’s Dunwall. Players will fight through cultist outposts and supernatural psychic spaces as they piece together Redfall’s many mysteries. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdLeBCGh1PU&ab_channel=BethesdaSoftworks

Players can collect an arsenal of specialized weaponry and customize their character with unique upgrades and abilities to suit their playstyle for guns blazing, stealth combat, and everything in between.
