Redfall looks equal parts spooky and chaotic.

Set in Redfall, Massachusetts, the small town is suffering from a big problem: hordes of vampires. According to Arkane, the town is a small island that is secluded from the outside world.

Vampires have blocked out the sun in Redfall and are preventing anyone from getting to and from the island. It’ll be up to the team to take down these evil forces and restore order to the town.
