If you’ve been wondering just what on Earth is going on in the town of Redfall, the setting of Arkane’s new open-world, co-op FPS, then here’s your opportunity to get a little more insight into the game’s setting and narrative.
Arkane and publisher, Bethesda, have released a new, three-minute trailer diving into the origins of the vampiric threat in Redfall and the shady scientific racket at the forefront of it all. You’ll also get a new glimpse at the powerful vampire gods ruling over the town’s various districts.
It’s a compelling premise, rife with opportunity for over-the-top encounters and plenty of pulp horror action, which you can see play out in the back half of the trailer:
There’s a lot more to the charming island of Redfall than meets the eye. The scientists at Aevum HQ have been working on something world-shattering. People are going missing; there are dead bodies and blood everywhere; the sun has been eclipsed; and vampires rule the town. Were the vampires just an experiment gone horribly wrong or something far more disturbing? Who are the vampire gods? The only thing to know for sure is that everything is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.
Redfall is coming to Xbox Series X|S and PC on May 2nd, 2023.
