Redfall Story Trailer Has Mad Scientists, Massive Vampires, and Lots of Shooting
Arkane Studios has shared the official story trailer for its upcoming co-op shooter Redfall which shares the mad science origins of the game’s vampire apocalypse.
The lengthy three minute trailer (below) opens with an optimistic message from a character called Ava, who says a drop of her blood was promised to “free people from sickness and death”.
This seemingly turned into a dangerous experiment that resulted in her death, however, with the extracted blood not just healing people and granting immortality, but turning them into vampires too. These vampires took over the town of Redfall, which quickly collapsed into a broken society led by gangs of the savage monsters.
Some of the stronger vampires are also introduced in the trailer, suggesting that Redfall will be separated into four areas with vampire leaders at the helm of each. These include The Hollow Man, a winged vampire with protruding organs; Bloody Tom, a massive, muscly vampire; Miss Whisper, who seems to have branch-like growths all over her body; and the Black Sun, suggested to be the most powerful of all.
Various gameplay clips also featured in the trailer, showing how up to four players can take on the town at once to defeat facilities full of the vampires in a ton of creative ways.
Arkane announced earlier in March that Redfall will support cross-play, meaning players can team up regardless of platform, though its barrier to entry is raised in other ways as Redfall will become one of the first Xbox first party games to cost $70 when it launches on May 2.
