After being delayed out of 2022, Xbox and PC exclusive Redfall could arrive in the middle of the year. According to a new report from Windows Central’s Jez Corden, Microsoft plans to release the Arkane-developed game in early May, which would put it on the “first half of 2023” date the company previously mentioned. The company’s current plan is also to offer players an early access period, similar to what Forza Horizon 5 had for players who purchased the premium edition of that game.
This means that Redfall will have been delayed by nearly a year, as the original plan was for the vampire hunting game to arrive during the summer of 2022. The game is one of two major titles that Microsoft has planned for the coming year, with Starfield being one of the other major releases of 2023 as part of the company’s grand one-two strategy to release more expensive exclusives.
So far, May’s schedule isn’t too packed, but it’s home to two heavy hitters in the form of Nintendo’s highly anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which will be released on May 12 and May 28, respectively.
If you’ve missed the cover so far, Redfall casts you as one of four survivors of a vampire apocalypse, all of whom have unique skills and tools that allow you to become an expert in the art of killing. the undead and their human buddies.
You can play solo if you want or co-op, and there’s no limit to who you can play, allowing multiple main characters to run amok in the open world Arkane has crafted. For more details, you can check out GameSpot’s feature on everything we know about Redfall.
