As a part of the conference’s digital occasion, builders from Arkane Austin together with studio director Harvey Smith spoke on what the sport is, and what gamers can anticipate.
During the dialog between the builders, the dimensions of the map was introduced up. “Speaking to the dimensions, I believe the Talos in Prey was 5 soccer fields, and the dimensions of Redfall is sort of ‘maintain my beer'” artwork director Karen Segars stated within the video.

Weapons sound like they will be a variety of enjoyable too, with one specific weapon that was highlighted, a stake gun, sounding like it will likely be a really great tool.
