Redfall Hands-on Impressions by the community

Two weeks ago multiple media outlets and content creators were invited for a hands-on preview event for Redfall. There they were able to play the full game for 90min.

I watched a lot of previews and collected a few noteworthy impressions from the web that I believe you should check out.

The IGN video is here to get a quick impression, however, if you really want a deep dive into the game then check out the other hands-on previews.

Fellow Borderlands creator, Moxsy, also got invited to the event and he has a great in-depth video that covers various aspects of the game. Moxsy also asked his community what they wanted to know and therefore he added a Q&A section at the end.

Noteworthy Take Aways

  • Killing the Rook can result in a legendary drop.

  • Legendary/Gold gear is called Unrivaled
  • Capstone skills require other skills on top of the point cost.
  • The game doesn’t pause when going into your inventory while playing solo.
  • Respec unlocks at LVL10 but you don’t have to worry too much about it as you are likely to unlock the majority of the skills.
  • You can only add Stakes to guns, there is no gun crafting that lets you alter the sight or silencer.
  • Materials: Oil, Water, and Tape are used as a currency.
  • The AI of the cultist enemies is less advanced than the Vampire AI.
  • The preview version of the game had some frame-rate issues but optimizations are still being worked on.
