What looks like the child of the Borderlands and Left 4 Dead, we look at the upcoming game from Bethesda Studios. Featuring Redfall gameplay and expectations, will it be another cash-grab-bugged game that triple-A games normally are, or will it feature battle passes and pay-to-win features?

Redfall System Requirements

Being a triple-A game, Redfall has pretty high requirements for gameplay which looks like Dishonored and Fortnite with RTX on. But, there are certain demographies prefer, and graphics are not everything.

Redfall Gameplay and Expectations

Redfall is an open-world, co-op FPS from Arkane Austin, the award-winning team behind Prey and Dishonored. Continuing Arkane’s legacy of carefully crafted worlds and immersive sims, Redfall brings the studio’s signature gameplay to this story-driven action shooter.

Arkane Austin is the team behind one of the most memorable games of our generation, the Dishonored Series. Expectations are high as their story-driven games have effort and love put in, something rarely seen nowadays. Games have become a quick exploit to earn money for corporate studios. Therefore, AAA games (games with a significantly higher budget) fall on either side of the spectrum.

Speculations from the Redfall Gameplay Trailer


Viewing the trailer, Redfall’s gunplay, its main aspect, feels weightless, almost like Fortnite! What good co-op shooters have in common are a wide variety of guns (Borderlands), guns that feel like shots actually deal damage (Left 4 Dead Series), or customization and load-outs (COD).

While Redfall promises load-outs as it is an open-world FPS, leading to the discovery of various lore items and more items to find around the world, what might make it better is a variety of mobs and enemies. Unique bosses and arenas might also make the game more favourable towards the audience.


From the trailer, movement feels lackluster and lightweight. However, the gameplay trailer is not final, and Arkane might fix it on release. The same goes for everything feeling ‘wrong’ in this article. The game has not been released yet and might have significant changes brought about on release and post-release through feedback.

Final thoughts on Redfall Gameplay

A vampire-infested city might not be a very original troupe. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines had a similar theme, but the vampires were not invading; rather, they intended to keep their existence a secret. If Arkane Studios manages to build a similar ambiance to that of Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines, alongside the invasion and battle-death loops, average gunplay, and plot, Redfall has the potential to release as a hit.
