A new game from Arkane Studios was revealed at Xbox’s E3 showcase on Sunday. Title Redfall, it’s an open-world, co-op survival shooter where players fight against hordes of vampires.
The intro for Redfall shows various vampires fighting against a super-strong team of humans. Each human has their own special abilities and weapons to slay the vampires, including one that shoots sunlight and another that shoots stocks. According to a trailer for the game, players will be able to choose their hero “from a diverse roster, teaming up with others to create the perfect vampire-slaying team.” The game is being developed by Arkane Austin, the same studio that produced Prey.
Along with vampires, the trailer also shows the group of superpowers battling other humans, who appear to have been perceived by the vampires as enemies.
Today’s trailer doesn’t reveal many details about Arkane Austin’s upcoming game, but we did get a few lore snippets. The vampire in the game is called “The Cult”, because one of the main characters is researching bloodsuckers. According to that character, the game takes place in the town of Redfall, Massachusetts.
Each character appearing in today’s trailer has their own unique abilities. One woman can create spectral lifts from thin air, while another commands a small robot. Along with specialized powers, each one is proficient with their own weapons, such as pistols, rifles or the aforementioned specialized vampire slaying device.
Redfall is set to release in the summer of 2022 and will be exclusive to Xbox consoles and PC. Redfall will also be playable on launch day with Xbox Game Pass.
