You start off with one of the four playable characters and each of them has unique abilities that you can use. Depending on your choice, it’s either sniper, support, medic or attacker. Standard stuff, eh? The three abilities for each character are rather tasteful though. We picked Layla Ellison who can create a shield for absorbing bullets, conjure an elevator which is essentially a jump pad (Fortnite fans rejoice) and the third is my personal favourite - an ex-boyfriend who is a vampire will appear and attack your enemies. Safe to say, the writing and lore are handled with a sense of humour that you will only find in games by Arkane Studio.
Redfall is also good at bringing your curiosity with its unusual environment design. You start off in a boat which is stuck in water that is stuck in time. No, it’s not frozen like your ice cubes but frozen in time. Meanwhile, the sun is blocked so vampires can dilly-dally and feast. It’s an uncommon setting for sure and for that, Redfall manages to separate itself from the rest of the shooters in the genre.
