Redfall Video Game Release Date Revealed
After being delayed out of 2022, Xbox and PC-exclusive Redfall will release in the middle of the year. According to a new report from Jez Corden at Windows Central, Microsoft is planning to release the Arkane-developed game in early May, which would put it in the “first half of 2023” date that the company had earlier mentioned. The current plan by the company is to also offer an early access period for gamers.
Redfall has been delayed for almost a year, as the original plan was for the vampire-hunting game to release during the Summer of 2022. The game is one of two major titles that Microsoft has planned for the year ahead, with Starfield being one of the other major releases of 2023 as part of the company’s big one-two-punch strategy for releasing more expensive exclusives.
The May schedule isn’t too crowded but it is home to two heavy hitters in the form of Nintendo’s long-awaited The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which will be released on May 12 and May 28, respectively.
Redfall casts you as one of four survivors in a vampire apocalypse, who all wield special skills and tools that allow you to evolve into a specialist in the art of killing the undead and their human cronies.
You can play solo if you like or in co-op, and there’s no limitation on who you can play as, allowing for numerous main characters to run wild within the open world that Arkane has created.
