Arkane Austin closed out the Xbox + Bethesda Showcase with a vampiric bang, revealing an upcoming Xbox exclusive IP, Redfall.
The stylish trailer doesn't show any gameplay, but it still didn't disappoint many judging by reactions on Twitter. The trailer evokes a kind of Left 4 Dead style gameplay, as the upcoming game from Arkane will be a co-op, open world first person shooter. You'll be able to jump in solo or with up to four players as you take out vampires with umbrella force powers, military precision, and a hint of paranormal investigation.
Set in the town of Redfall, you'll be tasked with wiping out the vampiric plague taking over the island itself, delving into the individual stories of each character at the same time.
Via the Xbox Wire post:
"In Redfall, you’ll choose from a lineup of unconventional heroes, each with their own unique abilities and specialized weaponry, and face off against the bloodsucking legions threatening the island. You can go it alone, building your chosen character around solo play, or you can select the perfect character to round out a roster of heroes in up to four-player co-op."
