It looks like Arkane Studios' co-op shooter Redfall has been in development since Prey: Mooncrash DLC released back in 2017. The full production probably did not kick-off for a couple of more years, though.
And they showed a CGI trailer?
“ The full production probably did not kick-off for a couple of more years, though.” Anyway, I think we might see something during Gamecom or VGA. There are still many months left until the game is released.
Man considering the release is summer 2022 I also found it odd that it was cgi only. Maybe becoz of covid? 🤷🏽♂️
You mean like God of War? or Stalker2? or Avatar? or every other game releasing in 2022?
What do you think game development looks like? The games are only functional and presentable quite close to the end.
God can we stop blaming covid for every case of ineptitude?
@bathyj Lol I like arkane, wouldn’t really call them inept but maybe coming up with a perfectly functional vertical slice would have detracted from the process of game development and schedule. Even if it wasn’t a live demo they would still have to make sure all the assets and music and vo are in that 5 mins gameplay chunk and running in top top shape, as we know usually that takes a few months for most studios even before covid, probably it wasn’t worth the time to do that. Either that’s all because of covid already causing delays in large studios adapting from work in studio to suddenly work at home environment or the game will most likely get delayed from summer 2022.
The game is still 12-15 months away. That's a long time.
E3 2013: Wolfenstein TNO CGI reveal Quakecon 2013: gameplay reveal E3 2016: Prey CGI reveal Quakecon 2016: gameplay reveal E3 2017: The Evil Within 2 CGI reveal Quakecon 2017: gameplay reveal E3 2018: DOOM Eternal CGI reveal Quakecon 2018: gameplay reveal seems like thats just how arkane does things cgi first and then gameplay later in the year
You make a good point
People keep saying this about games MS makes. But, when we look at most games they get CGI Trailers. The only ones I tend to see get true gameplay seems to be mostly action-adventure games. Mostly because they show gameplay well. But I see a ton of games that don't get much in the way of gameplay trailers. Horizon Forbidden West is about 4-6 months from release and just got its first gameplay trailer. Haven't seen anything from God of War yet. Returnal didn't get a gameplay trailer pretty much until release. I don't know why there is such a microscope on MS showing gameplay trailers. We got Forza Horizon 5 Gameplay, Psychonauts 2 got gameplay, Flight Simulator gameplay, and MS previewed Halo Infinite gameplay last year (yes, graphic fidelity's of characters was not good, but the gameplay itself seemed fun).

I laughed but it’s arkane, you have to give them some benefit of the doubt. I wouldn’t be surprised though.
I'll be honest, I am not saying the game will be great or anything, I'll reserve judgement, but it is funny how as soon as MS buys bethesda certain people now hate all Bethesda games. I suspect there may be 2 exceptions for those people, but it honestly is pretty funny.
People wouldn't be making them if customers weren't buying them. Jus' saying.
I used to think that was true. “Why would a business alienate half of its consumer base? That’s dumb.” Yet they do it all of the time lol. It’s like they don’t give a shit about profit anymore. They used to be predictable, f*** corporations lol.
Sony wouldn't have made PS3 $599 if it wasn't going to sell at that price. EA wouldn't have released Anthem if its playerbase was going to die. Nintendo wouldn't have made the Wii U if it wasn't going to sell. Square Enix wouldn't have made an Avengers game unless it was going to make money.
And after 5 years they were not able to show a bit gameplay?..oookay.
Damn, had they known Terry_B on N4G wanted to see some they might have shown it off. Speak up louder next time.
I'm sorry, I thought games, games, games and super confidence meant you had something to show. Look at the original world of Warcraft CGI trailer from like 2004 and then the gameplay. The CGI trailer from then looks better than almost every game today but that game looks like crap, and I played it for years to know. The overuse of CGI trailers means they are not confident in their gameplay or visuals.
@Darkborn Your example proves my point. They didn't show gameplay early and you loved it. No reason to show gameplay until closer to release.
@darkborn no it doesnt. just look at the skin, hairs and pores etc. it was amazing for its time, and even though it still looks good and i enjoy watching it again, for todays standards its pretty bad.
Maybe....just maybe, they choose not to.
And still couldn't show gameplay?
Most games don’t show gameplay on their first announce. Usually you get a teaser or a cinematic first. Especially the big AAA games.
5 years man. And Microsoft needed a killer show. Show gameplay, what's the problem?
Bathyj. The gameplay wasn't ready? lol 5 years in development does not mean the game is ready to be shown. The development process has many stages that has nothing to do with gameplay. Cyberpunk took a while only in research. It takes even more time for new IPs, or ideas that go through transformation. It's easier for already preestablished franchises
Maybe they didn't want another Halo Infinite incident.
So why did we get another CG trailer then?
Didn’t want to kill the hype with gameplay so CGI let’s people fill in the gaps .
Probably never made into production because it wasnt interesting enough, then probably showed it to Phil and he was like "that will be game of the generation, here's 100 million"
Game available only on Xbox and PC = Xbox exclusive. Game available only on Playstation and PC = multiplatform. Double standards.
Why do you even care?
Where are you getting these quotes from? Or are they not quotes, but fabrication you made up just now?
Really? Kena? https://gamerant.com/kena-b... https://n4g.com/news/242484... Deathloop? https://www.theverge.com/20... Godfall? https://www.polygon.com/e3/... Guilty Gear? https://screenrant.com/ps5-...
In development for five years and still they felt the need to only show CGI... that is not a good sign
5 years and there was no gameplay to be shown? maybe soon
So after 5 years of development all MS had to show was CGI? C'mon MS do better...
Hard to believe when there was no gameplay shown at all.
Where's the gameplay?
This cgi trailer didnt really look all that inspiring but anything MS has I can play on PC anyway if need be.
And as an Xbox owner this game looks terrible
With a CGI trailer you know the game looks terrible? WOW.
The game is a year away from release... more then enough time to show gameplay.
5 years and all we got at e3 was a cgi trailer.
Now we just need Nintendo to release a game that ends with fall and then everyones joined the party.
Win for Xbox! Hope it is fantastic!
So its only on the console? as the heading suggests.
A shame they didn't spend that time and money making something more interesting.
5 years, 1 cgi trailer........
