Redfall, A New Xbox Exclusive Shooter From Arkane, Coming In 2022, Revealed At E3
Microsoft closed out its E3 2021 showcase with a look at an exclusive new shooter from Arkane.
Microsoft closed out its Xbox/Bethesda E3 2021 presentation with the reveal of a brand-new title from Arkane, the studio behind Dishonored and Prey. The game is called Redfall, and it's coming exclusively to Xbox in 2022.
Billed as an open-world co-op shooter, Redfall casts players as a ragtag team of heroes who are fighting to drive back a legion of vampires. The reveal trailer was reminiscent of Left 4 Dead and Back 4 Blood, showcasing the different characters working together to eliminate supernatural foes.
According to the official Redfall website, the game "blends single- and multiplayer options seamlessly." You'll be able to venture off solo or with a team of three other players. The vampires besieging the city are the result of a scientific experiment gone awry, and you'll need to contend with various mutations--as well as human cultists supporting them.
It will still have elements of Arkane's past works, however, according to Bethesda's Pete Hines. The world won't always be the same based on how you play, and exploration will be rewarded. He said that players will clearly see where the Arkane DNA is when playing the final game.
Redfall is being made in collaboration with Evan Narcisse, a former game journalist and comics writer who created Rise of the Blank Panther.
Redfall is slated to release exclusively for Xbox Series X|S and PC in Summer 2022. Like other first-party titles, the game will also be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one. You can check out the first trailer for Redfall above.
Microsoft showcased a ton of other games during its Xbox/Bethesda E3 2021 presentation. In addition to Redfall, we got our first look at Starfield, Bethesda's first new IP in more than 25 years, as well as multiplayer gameplay from Halo Infinite.
