Redfall is the much-anticipated FPP co-op shooter by Bethesda Games. It was announced at the Xbox Bethesda Showcase E3 2021 and is currently being developed by Arkane Studios. Check out everything we know about Redfall here, including release dates, gameplay, story, characters, trailers, and more.
When the earliest leaks appeared, Redfall was blamed as a subtitle of The Elder Scroll 6 because of Daggerfall’s location and Redguard’s race. However, the rumors turned into a hoax when Bethesda officially opened Redfall.
Now, an upcoming vampire co-op is being developed and recently put on hold. Players are eagerly awaiting the game alongside Starfield -based space adventure. All eyes are set on the current Xbox and Bethesda shows in hopes of positive news.
What is the Redfall Release Date?
Redfall is initially set to launch in the Summer of 2022. However, Bethesda recently announced that it has been postponed until the first half of 2023.The teams at Arkane Austin (Redfall) and Bethesda Game Studios (Starfield) have incredible ambitions for the game, and we want to make sure you receive the best and most polished version.”Said the publisher.
Currently, we don’t yet have a specific release date for Redfall. We only know that it will come in the first six months of next year. Bethesda may also reveal a specific release date during the upcoming Xbox and Bethesda shows.
This (e.g.) info (rmasi) is quite old. Bethesda has announced a game called Redfall and has moved its release date (along with the release date for starfield) to the first half of 2023 🙂 pic.twitter.com/c3404s2yTm

However, the release date was not an issue when Bethesda became the publisher. We’ve seen this recently when Deathloop launched in September 2021 after being announced in late 2020, and Ghostwire: Tokyo was launched in March 2022 but the initial launch was set for October 2021.
Redfall Platform: What’s to come on the PlayStation 5?
Redfall will be released exclusively for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. It will also launch Day One on Xbox Game Pass. If you have a subscription, you’ll be able to enjoy a free vampire co-op when it launches.
Thank you for joining the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, congratulations to the team showing off your creations today. An amazing back-to-back game lineup is coming to Game Pass this year led by Xbox Game Studios, continuing into 2022 with Starfield and Redfallhttps: //t.co/erTpzeuyrG pic.twitter.com/C0Xmc8fAYc

Unfortunately, Redfall will not be available on Sony’s latest console, the PlayStation 5. Microsoft bought ZeniMax, Bethesda’s parent company, in 2020, and Arkane is all owned by Bethesda. Thus, the title will be exclusive to Microsoft consoles and PCs.
Redfall Trailer and Gameplay Details
Redfall currently only has one trailer available that the publisher has released along with the announcement at the Xbox Bethesda showcase E3 2021.
We look forward to having another one during the upcoming Bethesda Xbox show. Hopefully we can see a preview of the game’s gameplay.
Now, the available cinematic trailer shows four playable characters around the abandoned shop while the clip then moves on to a fierce battle that has survived on the same path.
He carries a gun and a variety of powers and abilities to fight a group of masked humans followed by a horrible vampire, the main citizen of Redfall.
Not much is known about the gameplay. We know that Redfall will be the first person shooter in Massachusetts to open the world. Players will fight Coven, a group of vampires, who have overrun a small town.
According to a new leak, Redfall will have customizable loads, special abilities, level requirements, and plenty of loot. Players will also be able to modify their stats in a number of ways. However, we have not been able to confirm it.
Redfall will have a fun Story
The story of Redfall takes place in the island town of Redfall, Massachusetts. Vampires have now taken over the city. However, they are not ancient creatures but the result of failed scientific experiments, such as Left 4 Dead.
The story tells of a group of explorers who are now fighting another group of masked men followed by vampires. The story will have a lot of twists and should be a fun part of the game.
The city setting will be on an open-world concept. Players will be able to interact with their environment and use whatever they can find. The environment will continue to change as you explore more.
We know about Characters in Redfall
As confirmed by the announcement trailer and website, Redfall will feature not one but four playable characters. Everyone has a different background and specific character skills. See them:
Layla Ellison: He has a degree in biomedical engineering from Redfall Technical University and has worked at a local research organization called Aevum Therapeutics. He was visibly reminded of the horrific incident at the facility and he woke up with powerful telekinetic abilities.
Devinder Crousley: He is a professional influencer who specializes in cryptozoology and investigates paranormal objects. He came to Redfall with the intention of documenting the events that took place here. Dev was also an inventor who made weapons and used them for war.
Remi de la Rosa: He was a special combat and rescue operations engineer in the U.S. Navy. He has made a robot friend named Bribón to fight on his side. Remi seemed a genius trying to save Redfall’s survivors.
Jacob Boyer: He was a former military sniper who was in Redfall as part of an elite private security force. Strange happenings in the city leave Jacob with mysterious vampire eyes and a spectral crow that always flies on his shoulders.
Will Redfall have a multi-platform multiplier?
Redfall features multiplayer co-op with up to three other players. There are four playable characters in the game. You can choose one while your friends can choose from three other options. Together, your group can face a powerful vampire attack.
However, it is unknown if Redfall will have a crossplay between Xbox and PC players. I find it highly unlikely to happen. Bethesda can keep players separate and only allow multiplayer for the same platform.
Arkane announced the next game last June. Redfall is a multiplier project where you fight vampires in a college town in Massachusetts. After Deathloop, I’m definitely expecting this a lot more now. pic.twitter.com/NspHlWB5SR

The official website says Redall will have a multiplier and single-player options to mix it up smoothly. This is good news for the fans.
Stay tuned to find out more information about Redfall in the days to come. We look forward to the announcement during the Xbox and Bethesda shows on June 12/14.
