There's more to Redfall than simply slaying vampires.
A group of humans with special abilities and guns faces off against a giant half-human monster with large bloody red hands.

If you thought that Redfall, the upcoming action title from Arkane Austin was purely about slaying vampires, you would be mistaken. Sure, there is a lot of that vampire slaying going on but there's also something a little extra going on. A little something that studios like to call "a story."

The latest trailer for Redfall shares with us information about the game's plot. That plot that seems to involve a company called Aevum Therapeutics and their "sinister experiments" that went and flipped an entire city into a bunch of vampires. Taking a page straight out of the Umbrella Corporation playbook, eh?

If for some reason that trailer wasn't enough information for you, Bethesda put up a special story focused blog post for Redfall today. A little bit of what they shared can be seen here.

There’s a lot more to the charming island of Redfall than meets the eye. Something spooky is happening in the town and the scientists at Aevum HQ have been working on something world-shattering. People are going missing; there’re dead bodies and blood everywhere; the sun has been eclipsed; and vampires rule the town. Were the vampires just an experiment gone horribly wrong or something far more disturbing? Who are the vampire gods? The only thing to know for sure is that everything is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.
Redfall allows you to play on your own or together with up to three additional friends. Redfall is set to be released on Xbox Series X|S, Game Pass, and PC on May 2, 2023. Pre-orders are open now for your platform of choice.
