Closing out the show was none other than Arkane Austin’s next title, Redfall. It was a completely CGI trailer, but it looked absolutely fantastic. From the snarky characters to the colorful palette, there’s a reason why we don’t really question Arkane.
Redfall feels like an evolution from where Arkane began. They are dipping their toes into the cooperative open-world shooter genre in a big way. I’m sure there was some dismay that this rumored vampire game wasn’t more inline with something like Prey, but what they showed was fascinating.
Arkane detailed their cast of characters in an Xbox wire post saying:
“Redfall features a rich campaign that explores not only the story of the island and the creatures plaguing its streets, but the stories of our four heroes as well.
Layla Ellison – She may be the youngest member of the team, but there isn’t much she can’t handle with her wits and wildly powerful telekinetic abilities.
Jacob Boyer – Jacob is an ex-military sharpshooter with a penchant for dark clothing and a mysterious vampiric eye. If you need to find him on the field, look for his spectral raven circling overhead. Jacob won’t be far away.
Remi de la Rosa – Always spotted with her robotic compatriot, Bribón, Remi lives on the frontlines of conflict, using her brilliant mind and strong sense of empathy to protect her loved ones and help those in need around the world.
Devinder Crousley – Inventor and internet-famous paranormal investigator, Devinder is ready to prove to the world that vampires are real – but he’s going to need to survive them first.”
Redfall is releasing exclusively on Xbox X|S and PC and will be on Game Pass on day one.
