Redfall creative director says Arkane's vampire shooter is not like Left 4 Dead 'at all'

Our initial impression of Redfall (opens in new tab), the next game from Dishonored studio Arkane, was that it’s a Left 4 Dead-style shooter (opens in new tab) that swaps out zombies for vampires. In a new interview with GamesRadar (opens in new tab), however, creative director Ricardo Bare and studio director Harvey Smith said that’s really not an accurate assessment.

“It’s totally understandable for somebody to come to that conclusion,” Bare said. “There are four playable characters, you can play together cooperatively, and you’re going against the undead. But, in terms of the way that you play and experience Redfall, it’s not like those games at all. Redfall is more like loading into Far Cry.”
