Arkane Austin’s next game, set on the fictional island town of Redfall, Massachusetts, is a first-person shooter in which you find yourself trapped in a community overrun by vampires and a cult that worships them. With no easy way of communicating with the outside world, you must use a variety of mutant abilities, firearms, and high-tech gadgets to escape Redfall.

After being pushed back from 2022, the Xbox and PC-only Redfall could arrive in the middle of the year. According to a new report from Windows Central’s Jez Corden, Microsoft plans to release the Arkane-developed game in early May, putting it in the “first half of 2023” time frame that the company previously mentioned. The company’s current plan is to offer an early access period for players, similar to what Forza Horizon 5 did for players who purchased the premium edition of the game.

This means that Redfall will have been delayed for nearly a year, as the game was supposed to be released in Summer 2022. The game is one of two major titles planned by Microsoft for the coming year, with Starfield being the other major release in 2023 as part of the company’s big one-two punch strategy for releasing more expensive exclusives.

If you haven’t seen it yet, Redfall casts you as one of four survivors in a vampire apocalypse, each with their own set of skills and tools that allow you to become a specialist in the art of slaying the undead and their human allies.

You can play solo or in co-op, and there are no restrictions on who you can play as, allowing multiple main characters to run wild within Arkane’s designed open-world.

Redfall appears to be Arkane Austin’s take on a Borderlands-style game, with four distinct playable characters and the option of playing solo or in four-player co-op. This is a significant departure for Arkane Austin, who previously created the exceptional Prey in 2017. We go over everything we know about Redfall, including when it will be released and on which platforms.
