What is Redfall

Redfall is primarily a single and multiplayer co-op game that takes place in the town of Redfall, Massachusetts in the United States which has a vampire problem. A huge vampire problem that has thus far created a solar eclipse and has laid the town under siege.

You can play it solo or coop  with up to four players and heroes to choose from, each with different abilities, strengths and classes. You get your choice of:

  • DEVINDER CROUSLEY: A cryptozoologist and aspiring inventor. Armed with weapons of his own creation, he’s on a mission to prove himself. 
  • LAYLA ELLISON: A biomedical engineering student who interned at a research facility, where something went very wrong, leaving her with intense telekinetic abilities. 
  • REMI DE LA ROSA: A brilliant combat engineer who has spent her life on the frontlines. With the help of her robot cohort, Bribón, she’s determined to help rescue Redfall’s survivors. 
  • JACOB BOYER: An ex-military sharpshooter turned private contractor. Strange happenings on Redfall have left Jacob with a mysterious vampiric eye and a spectral raven that’s never far from his side. 

The world of Redfall will be crafted by the level designers behind the Talos 1 space station and Dishonored’s Dunwall with urban settings, forests, a seaside boardwalk and more. In addition to vampires, you’re slated to engage more mortal cultists and other supernatural horrors with liberal applications of hot lead and magic.
