Redfall seems like it won’t be leaving solo players out to dry. The cooperative shooter is set to be as accommodating to lone wolves as it will be for groups of up to four players, developer Arkane confirms.
Arkane chatted more about Redfall in a blog post on Bethesda’s official site. The game, launching on PC, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox Game Pass in 2023, will have a “huge emphasis” on the solo experience.
Redfall “can be soloed with any of the heroes,” the blog post reads. “The pace becomes more exploratory; you can use recon and stealth to gather info on encounters and avoid enemies or get the drop on them.”
