Redfall gets its first gameplay trailer and it’s a blast

Arkane’s Redfall made another appearance during Xbox & Bethesda’s 2022 Games Showcase. This new trailer gave players a better look at its shooting gameplay, as well as new details on its eclectic cast of vampire hunters.

Redfall Official Gameplay Reveal Trailer | Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022

Redfall is an upcoming first-person shooter that puts players in control of one of four different characters that must travel large environments and survive against a vampire hoard. It can be compared to a hero-shooter, in that each character has unique abilities made to take on the blood-sucking threat.

The characters are the undead deadeye, Jacob Boyer, with the ability to turn invisible and snipe, Remi De La Rosa, who can utilize a robot dog partner, Devinder Crousley, who has special cryptid hunting tools, and Layla Ellison, who has telekinetic powers.

The vampires in Redfall were created in a science experiment gone wrong. These nightcrawlers also evolve into different variations, somewhat like the zombies of the Left 4 Dead series.

This highly anticipated title originally appeared at Xbox & Bethesda’s 2021 Games Showcase last year and was delayed to 2023 this year. Bethesda stated that the game takes place in an “ever-changing open-world that reacts to your choices and actions.” Co-creative director Ricardo Bare also stated that the focus of the title would remain on deep world-building and inventive game mechanics.

While it’s been a year since we last heard from Redfall, there is still no definite release date. However, Xbox confirms the game is releasing in 2023 for Xbox consoles, PC, and the cloud. It’s also coming day one to Xbox Game Pass.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is one of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 games of the year, as it promises that DC Comics fans will get to see their favorite antiheroes wreak havoc in the Batman Arkhamverse. The co-op action game features a storyline straight out of Marvel's What If...? with most members of the Justice League getting brainwashed by Brainiac. And it has the distinction of featuring Kevin Conroy's final voice performance as the Dark Knight. On paper, it has a lot going for it.

There's just one problem, though. You can only play it online, even when you're going solo.
