Announced during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Redfall is a new co-op, open-world first-person shooter from Arkane Austin, the award-winning team behind Prey and Dishonored...play it solo or in co-op with up to four players to face off against a legion of vampires that have overtaken the once-quaint island town of Redfall...

coming Summer 2022...

Redfall and Game Pass could propel Arkane onto the global stage where it belongs

Redfall could do what Dishonored and Prey couldn't...Arkane Studios is preparing to make its debut under the Xbox Game Studios banner with a brand new open-world, co-op shooter set on an island besieged by cultists and vampires...with Microsoft's marketing behind it, and the visibility afforded by Game Pass, Redfall has the opportunity to pull Arkane into the mainstream

the team deserves it too, the opportunity to be afforded the attention and adulation typically given to studios like Bungie and Insomniac...Arkane Studios has become synonymous with quality and creativity...for whatever reason, that impression hasn't seeped fully into the public consciousness...

Maybe because their quality has been steadily on the decline since Dishonored 2 after a certain subset of people took over the company. Just a thought.

I thought Prey was excellent and not a step down at all...Wolfenstein: Youngblood was more MachineGames then Arkane...we'll see what Deathloop brings...

Shit looks alot better than Back 4 Blood chug fest characters have life to them they look like vampires themselves. If Arkane uses the engine for Deathloop this could be a Left for Dead 2 successor deathloop looks pretty amazing in its own right hopefully this is 1st person.

Arkane is one of the most consistently good developers out there so the chances of Redfall being excellent are pretty high...the cinematic trailer was a bit silly as they should have shown some actual gameplay

Not to get into political aspects (I come here to avoid it) but I have noticed Arcane studios interweaving political themes in their games. I play games to escape the current political polarization and hysteria that has taken over this country. I do not want to be reminded of it while I am playing games. I think politics and political indoctrination should be left out of the games (regardless whether its coming from the left or the right). Granted, I have not seen Redfall, but if their prior games are an indication I am not optimistic. This is why I like games like Doom Eternal, 0 politics 100% shooting.

Prey (2017) was decent, but it killed the sequel to Prey (2006) to exist. 2017 has its own sordid history during development that I won't get into.
