Redfall is an upcoming open-world co-operative FPS from Arkane Austin and Bethesda Softworks. The title was unveiled during Microsoft’s E3 show and gave us a first look at its world, and characters with a cinematic trailer. The game can be played both as a solo player or with friends through online co-op. Since this title is being published by Microsoft and Bethesda, it will be coming to Xbox consoles, as well as PC, which leads to a few obvious questions. Is Redfall Cross Platform? Here is everything we know so far.
The game features a dynamic setting, and multiple playable characters with their unique abilities, and traits. The game shares some similarities with Borderlands titles, and we expect players to jump in and out of the campaign as smoothly as in those games. Redfall will also be coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one, for both PC and console subscribers.
Is Redfall Cross Platform?
Update 06/03/2023: Arkane Studios has confirmed that Redfall supports cross-platform play between Xbox, PC Game Pass, Steam, and Epic Games Store.
Now, the game leans heavily into the co-op aspect based on the little information we do have. The trailer also showed a bunch of characters surviving together, meaning there is a greater emphasis on that aspect. Since the game is coming to Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC, what does that mean for people that want to play with their friends across different platforms?
Well, at the moment, we don’t have confirmation whether Redfall will support cross-platform or not. While some gameplay footage did leak, we still haven’t officially seen gameplay footage, and it is still a bit too early for all the details to be revealed.
The official website does say it blends single and multiplayer options seamlessly but doesn’t elaborate whether that applies to different platforms.
Hopefully, we’ll see actual gameplay soon, and the developers will reveal more details of not just the game, but its online capabilities as well.
Redfall Release Date
Redfall is targeting a Summer 2022 release date. It is coming to PC, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. This is also an Xbox exclusive, and won’t be coming to the PlayStation 4, or PlayStation 5.
