Sink Your Teeth Into Redfall - The Vampire Game Coming To Xbox Game Pass

Find out everything we know about Redfall, the upcoming vampire game from Arkane Studios that's coming to Xbox Game Pass. We first caught wind of Redfall way back in 2021, when the game was a surprise E3 announcement during the Bethesda Softworks and Microsoft Xbox showcase. At the time, we didn't know much about the game other than it being an "open-world vampire game." Arkane told us they would stay true to their world-building ways while making changes and improvements from previous projects. Now that we are close to the release date, here's everything we know about Redfall.

Redfall Is An Open-World Co-op FPS Developed By Arkane Austin

From the developers of Dishonored and Prey comes a new vampire-slaying adventure. The game is set in the town of Redfall, Massachusetts, which is under siege by vampires. You can play alone or with up to three other players in co-op mode. The game will feature a deep story campaign, side quests, and objectives. Initially, Redfall was delayed, along with Starfield. Unlike Starfield, Redfall didn't turn into a complete disaster. Redfall is set to release on May 2, 2023, and will be available from day one on Xbox Game Pass.

The Island Town of Redfall Is In Danger

As the sun sets on Redfall, the town is besieged by vampires. The citizens are cut off from the outside world and must band together to survive. Meanwhile, the vampires are hell-bent on bleeding the town dry. It's up to you and your team to stop their plans. You'll be able to play as different characters, each with their own unique abilities. You can choose from various weapons and use your special abilities to take down the vampires. There will also be stealth gameplay options for those who want to avoid combat. The game is designed so that players can complete it however they want.

Jacob Boyer is an ex-military sharpshooter sent to Redfall to extinguish the threat. Originally part of an elite private security force, he was separated from his platoon by dark circumstances and went down a rogue path. Now he roams Redfall's streets, using the supernatural accuracy of his vampire eye to battle evil in the shadows. You might not see the mysterious, ragged raven circling overhead, but it's always nearby Jacob.

Uncover Mysteries In A Dark, Yet Vibrant Open World

Assemble your team of survivors and venture out into the open world of Redfall to take on the legion of vampires who have taken over. With the help of your allies, see if you can find a way to stop these creatures from bleeding the town dry. Work together to fight through cultist outposts and supernatural psychic spaces, piecing together the many mysteries of Redfall along the way.

Slay Solo or Terrorize Together

Slaying alone is cool and all, but a few friends aren't a bad idea when it comes to blood-thirsty vampires with itchy fangs. Multiplayer is a fun way to plow through the vampire infestation and retake your town. Squad up with a handful of survivors and turn the tables by terrorizing those thick-tooth blood heads. Use loadouts and unique abilities to conjure up creative solutions to an unsightly creatures-of-the-night problem.
