The vampire gods would like to speak to you.
Closing out the latest Xbox & Bethesda Developer Direct, Arkane Austin took us on an in-depth tour of the upcoming vampire slaying cooperative FPS Redfall.
This was our chance to get a better look at the different locations scattered around the map, including home bases like the fire station, where players can get a quick breather before getting new missions. These missions range from sneaking into infested areas to interrupting overzealous cultists before they can sacrifice innocent citizens to their vampire gods.
Those brave or foolish enough to go straight to the source can venture into vampire lairs, which distort the landscape and change every time you step inside. The goal here is to smash the heart that provides nourishment to the nest, then escape as the whole thing collapses around you.
It all seems pretty exciting, especially when you throw in unique enemy types like the Shroud, who shrouds the area in darkness, or the Rook; a muscular boy whose sole purpose in life is to fold you like a cheap suit.
If you survive long enough and collect the necessary skulls to enter their realm, your reward is a meet and greet with the vampire gods. These huge, ghastly creatures are quite a sight to behold, although you’ll probably be too busy running for your life before you get a chance to really appreciate their visage.
A range of weapons will be available to help you stave off death, from shotguns to sniper rifles, and the extensive skill tree allows players to customize their hunter to their heart’s content. Upgradable abilities were showcased that launched teammates into the air for an airstrike, as well as a maddened Ghost Screen that caught incoming bullets before firing them back at enemies.
