The Latest News on the upcoming Redfall Video Game
There are some keenly-awaited games due out in 2022, and the upcoming Redfall title is high on the list for many gamers. This latest effort from Arkane Studios and Bethesda Software should be released in the next few months but what do we know about it so far?
The Ongoing Popularity of Vampire Games
This list of the best vampire games for PC includes classics like Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. These games provide a variety of ways of fighting the infamous blood-sucking creatures and typically take place in dark, mysterious settings.
Those players looking for a different kind of vampire action can also find strategy games involving these dangerous creatures. A good example can be seen with Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars, which is based on the ancient Dracul bloodline and the vampires feasting on blood in a land called Warmont. It features turn-based gameplay where players attempt to build up their army and defeat rival clans.
The vampire theme has made its way into online slots too, with Immortal Romance Mega Moolah listed among the jackpot games on the William Hill site. This game from Microgaming combines two of their most popular titles, with the brooding Immortal Romance joining the Mega Moolah jackpot. It’s listed along with other progressive jackpot slots such as Age of the Gods: Epic Troy and Jackpot King Prize Lines.
The Things We Know About Redfall
This is an open-world, first-person shooter with the action taking place in a town called Redfall, which is on an island in Massachusetts. The problem is that vampires have overrun the town and blocked out the sun’s rays, giving them complete freedom to roam through the streets.
Players take control of one of a small group of survivors who need to tackle the monsters in any way they can. We’re promised innovative and interesting weapons like stake guns and UV blasting devices to help kill the vampires. Ricardo Bare is the co-creative director at developer Arkane and he said that they will continue with their strategy of making each game different from their previous titles.
It will be released for the Xbox Series X and for Windows PC in mid-2022, although no exact release date has yet been mentioned. The gameplay options include single-player mode and a multiplayer cooperative approach. Either way, four playable characters are available, each of whom has their own unique background story and fighting abilities.
As well as vampires, players will also need to deal with human opponents. The playable characters include a cryptozoologist and inventor named Devinder Crousley, combat engineer Remi de la Rosa, sharpshooting Jacob Boyer, and Layla Ellison, who studies telekinetics.
This game seems likely to be a success based on the fact that it’s being developed and released by two of the biggest names in the video game industry. However, it’s also worth considering that vampire games have always been particularly popular, even if the best games made in India haven't focussed too much on this subject so far.
The official trailer from 2021 introduced us to the main characters and some of the tough, powerful villains that they face. Rather than being typical vampires, they’re the result of scientific experiments that have given them incredible powers. A look at the trailer also suggests that the team got into this situation by trying to secretly film a video of the strange activities going on in Redfall.
There is no sign of the public appetite for vampire games fading away any time soon, so we can look forward to Redfall probably being another success in this genre.
