‘Redfall’ Release Date, Platform & Game Length

Redfall

Redfall is the latest title from Arkane Studios, the talented development team behind such hits as Dishonored, Prey, and Deathloop.

In this open-world FPS game, players can choose to go it alone or join up with other players to clear out a vampire infestation from the town of Redfall, Massachusetts.

Why have the vampires descended on the town? And who is the Night Manager, the head vampire in charge of the legion of other foes that you will take down during the game? These are the questions that will hopefully get answered during your playthrough.

Features:

  • Unravel the mystery behind the vampires’ appearance
  • Choose from a diverse team of heroes – a college student, a cryptozoologist, a combat engineer, or a mercenary
  • Collect an armoury of specialized weaponry
  • Customize your character with unique upgrades and abilities
  • Explore such locations as a haunted forest and a decimated seaside boardwalk

If you’re hoping to sink your teeth into Arkane’s new title, here are some of the other details you need to know.

What platform is Redfall releasing on?

Sorry PlayStation owners but Redfall will only be available on Xbox Series X and S and PC, via Steam and the Epic Game Store. The title won’t be available on PS4 or PS5 because Arkane, and Redfall’s publisher Bethesda, are now under the ownership of Xbox Game Studios.

Xbox and PC owners will be able to pick up the game on 2nd May 2023. Those with Xbox Game Pass will be able to play it on the day of its release.

How long is Redfall?

In an interview with Wccftech, the game’s creative director, Harvey Smith, explained the game’s campaign will be around 20 hours in length if gamers rush through the story. But as there is a lot of side content within the game, including vampire nests and safe house missions, we expect the game will be around 30-40 hours in length for gamers who strive for 100% completion.

Is Redfall single-player or multiplayer?

You can choose to venture into the darkness alone (with no AI teammates) or with a squad of up to 4-players if you prefer to play the game co-operatively. Unfortunately, split-screen local co-op isn’t an option so multiplayer will be online only.

Is there any DLC?

If you pre-order the Biteback edition of the game, you will be rewarded with the Redfall Hero Pass, the Throwback Outfit Pack, Laser Beam multi-weapon skin, and the Tactical Knife Stake weapon attachment for close-range fights.

The Redfall Hero Pass will give you access to two future heroes with unique abilities and gameplay options.

The Throwback Outfit Pack will give you access to unique outfits and backpacks for each of the game’s main playable characters.

Expect further DLC to be announced after the game’s release.
