Default Redfall - New game from Arkane.

So, Arkane's new game was revealed today, and…

loading…


…honestly, I don't know what to think about that. It's certainly not what I expected or wanted from them though.

Shame I liked their past games but the new direction of going MP and Co-op just doesn't grab my interest. I wonder if poor sales of past games had something to do with it?

As the latest Dishonored & Prey games underperformed according to Bethesda.

Yeah, pretty disappointed myself. It’s 4 player co-op, so likely not for me, even though you could play it solo. These sorts of games tend to be really shallow in the areas I care about: story/lore.

What’s with the current obsession with these co-op games. Do they tend to sell microtransactions, or do they just generally sell well?

I am with Couch on this. I really enjoyed the trailer a lot and at first was like this looks cool .. then saw it was co-op. Boo

I'm already bummed that Valve spends all their time on Left For Dead. Now Arkane has headed down this route.

Honestly? I'm starting to think a lot of the mainstream simply likes shit games.

Prey and the Dishonored series are stellar imo, but, like Couch mentioned, they apparently didn't perform up to Bethesda's standards sales-wise.

Yeah, to me this is a huge failure of epic proportions. I was really hoping for something sublime, and I got seriously rick-rolled instead.

Maybe a mix of Left for Dead and Overwatch. Meh, I say! Nothing that I'll care about!

Meh. Not what I was hoping from Arkane, and I like games with co-op. What a waste of that studio.

It looks like they're going for the Left 4 Dead crowd here. Afaik, it's not going to feature team-based multiplayer like Overwatch.

I thought this "genre" had died due to lack of public interest, weird to see someone making copies of Left4Dead at this stage. Not for me anyway.

It looks very millennial in that sickening way, from the stylistic choices to the level of banter. I wish developers would bring back real conversation rather than chit without the chat.
