Redfall gameplay

Redfall will see you and up to three other players take on forces of vampires and cultists who have overtaken the town of Redfall. While there’s an emphasis on multiplayer, especially with Redfall crossplay and crossplatform, you can play the entire game solo.

Largely, as described in our Redfall preview, the game is more of a horror game than it may look and generally, you will use a variety of characters’ abilities and guns to take on the vampire threats. You can get a glimpse of the game in action below:
