Redfall It feels more like Far Cry than Left 4 Dead, according to the game developers. Redfall It is one of the many upcoming Xbox games that are scheduled for release this year and will hopefully be a huge hit for the console and subscription service, Xbox Game Pass. Since it is a four-player co-op game, it will probably generate a lot of gamers from the service who are looking for a new game to play with their friends. Redfall It places players in a quiet and quaint New England town that has unfortunately been overrun by cults and vampires.
Due to its four-player co-op element, the fact that you’re fighting the undead in a first-person perspective, etc., it quickly drew comparisons to left 4 Dead game. However, Harvey Smith and Riccardo Bari of Arkane Studios GamesRadar said It’s similar to Far Cry, specifically far away 2. This doesn’t mean that you’ll be climbing towers and doing all sorts of fetch quests, it just means that you’ll have a very dense and lively open world that’s bigger than any of the other games Arkane has done so far. The team focuses on creating a rich world that accurately captures the aesthetic it’s trying to emulate, i.e. “bad tourist town” in New England. It’s not really a team shooter, as much as a place to explore and get lost in, while also being able to get to know yourself as you spend more time in it.
“In terms of freedom, there’s what you’d expect from other open worlds, but Redfall is a game on foot — the scale and pace are a little slow in that regard,” says Barry. “We want you to sneak through a cornfield at night in the fog, hear the vampires whispering in the dark. Maybe you’ll spot a farm in the distance and infiltrate it, only to find it’s full of cultists and some trapped survivors who you can save. That’s the kind of feeling Redfall has.”
As of now, it remains to be seen exactly how Redfall Stacks up all the games it’s compared to. Either way, if it can match its ambition, it looks like something that will give players hours of co-op fun. As of now, we still don’t know exactly when Redfall It will be released, but I hope it will not be far away.
