Redfall, the vampire-hunting co-op shooter from Arkane Austin, is getting into the spirit of the spooky season with a new trailer showcasing the titular town’s vampiric denizens.
It’s all a lot more atmospheric than previous showings for the game – which have predominantly focused on the camaraderie and quippery of its four playable heroes – and ramps up the spookiness by highlighting the varied vampire opponents waiting to be encountered in Redfall, Massachusetts. One sequence, in which a player prowls a blood-spattered family home by torchlight, suggests Redfall may even have time for a few proper scares among its mayhem.
“Halloween tastes different here. What better way to get into the spirit than with a brand new trailer highlighting some of the game’s creepiest bloodsuckers?,” teases the blurb accompanying the new trailer. “From the devious Angler to the ever-vigilant Watcher, this is just a bite of what you and your squad will face as you fight to take back Redfall.”
Arkane has previously described Redfall as its most ambitious project to date, not least because it’ll feature the studio’s biggest map yet.
Redfall, which was delayed alongside fellow Bethesda stablemate Starfield earlier this year, is expected to release in the first half of 2023 on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
