In a twist of fate, Redfall, the open world co-op looter shooter from Arkane Studios, is rising from the depths of its lackluster launch. Bethesda's beloved studio, known for titles like Dishonored and Prey, has been hard at work, unleashing updates to fix the game's vampire-slaying adventures. Let's sink our teeth into the latest developments and explore what's in store for Redfall!
When Redfall first arrived in mid-2023, it stumbled like a vampire in sunlight. Bugs, performance issues, and underwhelming design elements plagued the game, leaving players thirsting for more. However, Arkane, ever-committed to their craft, has unleashed three major updates since then. They've battled the bugs, improved stability, and even added stealth takedowns, which were mysteriously absent at launch. To top it off, they quenched the thirst for a 60 FPS performance mode for Xbox Series X and S players. Fang-tastic!
Not content with merely fixing the game, Arkane has also injected fresh content into Redfall's veins. The latest major update introduced an electrifying addition called The Basilisk: a UV-powered sniper rifle that promises to make vampire hunting a real blast. It's like having a vampire's worst nightmare in the palm of your hand!
But Arkane isn't done yet. They've just released a small hotfix, further polishing Redfall's fangs. Bethesda Support took to Twitter, revealing the four improvements in this update. Co-op players can rejoice as the update addresses a particularly painful issue, preventing the loss of level progress or gear after disconnections. And for those engaging in cooperative vampire slaying, the petrification of vampires is now more reliable. No more slippery bloodsuckers escaping your righteous wrath!
In their pursuit of perfection, Arkane has also adjusted the world difficulty to match the player's level throughout the game. No more feeling like a helpless mortal against overwhelming odds or breezing through undead hordes with ease. It's all about finding that delicate balance between challenge and triumph. Additionally, they've fixed a key story dialogue involving the enigmatic Amelia. Now you won't miss a single drop of her vampiric lore, even in the treacherous realm of New Game Plus.
However, it seems that Amelia's memorial dialogue is still playing hard to get, even after the hotfix. Players have taken to the comments, reporting that they still can't sink their teeth into this elusive dialogue. Fear not, brave hunters, for Arkane is surely aware of this issue and will address it in due time. After all, they've shown a commitment to their loyal player base and are dedicated to refining their supernatural masterpiece.
As the undead dust settles, players eagerly await Redfall's promised post-launch DLC. Arkane has tantalized us with the prospect of two new playable characters joining the fray, but the details remain shrouded in darkness. Will they bring a Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty-caliber relaunch, or will they seduce us with new weapons and bloodthirsty adversaries? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: Redfall is far from being laid to rest.
With a year of updates and improvements under their belt, Arkane seems primed to unleash their planned DLC upon the world of Redfall. Prepare for fresh blood to flow through the veins of this supernatural shooter. Whether you're hunting solo or gathering a team, Redfall's town of Massachusetts offers a story-driven adventure that will leave you thirsting for more.
