Redfall Launched

As noted last night, Redfall arrived before midnight in North America, but today is the official launch day for Arkane's vampire-infested sci-fi shooter. The Official Launch Trailer takes a look at the game and sets up the story. Here's the oddly pre-dated release announcement with the details:
The island of Redfall used to be such a nice place. Breezy boardwalks. A quaint city center. It was a picturesque ocean town. Then vampires took over, wiped out most of the population, and cut the survivors off from the outside world. Now all the smalltown charm has been replaced by an unending nightmare. Thankfully, there’s a team of heroes ready to step in and face down the vamps. Get ready to take back Redfall with the launch trailer.

Redfall is an open-world, co-op FPS from Arkane Austin, the award-winning team behind Prey and Dishonored. Slay alone or squad up with up to 4 player co-op and face off against the vampires holding the island hostage. Redfall brings the studio’s signature gameplay to this story-driven action shooter.

In true Arkane style, you’ll choose your path across the island and through the vampire masses as you discover what caused this plague of bloodsuckers. Explore a beautifully hand-crafted open world packed with detail and shine a light on the island’s darkest corners as you fight to uncover the vampires’ secrets. Choose from a roster of heroes with unique, upgradeable skills and gear them up with customizable weaponry found all over the island.
