Redfall’s Biggest Bosses Are ‘Twisted’ Vampire Gods That Block Out the Sun

Arkane Austin has revealed that Redfall will feature powerful bosses known as the “Vampire Gods” who are trapped in a Massachusetts town.

As part of the “Bringing Redfall to Life” panel at Quakecon 2022, members of Arkane explained that vampires in the upcoming open-world game aren’t generated by viruses, but are products of biotech companies.Aevum The Laboratories came to the town of Redfall to do research to extend lifespans, eventually creating vampires.

All vampires in the game have chosen to utilize Aevum technology, transforming into blood dependent beings in the name of living forever. However, using Aevum’s technology to its limits, it becomes a very powerful monster that Arkane calls the Vampire God.

Arkane Austin studio director Harvey Smith explains:

“The vampire gods are the most powerful,” added creative director Ricardo Baer. “They’re the ones who keep you on the island. They’re the ones who pushed the water back and blocked the sun. They’re tremendously powerful.”

The fact that the vampire gods act as “chapter breakpoints” suggests they could be the equivalent of Redfall’s Dishonored’s target or Deathloop’s Seer.

Cooperating with vampires is a group of human cultists who hang out with vampire leaders in hopes of one day becoming vampires. Some are seeded and become very powerful, while others become familiars and other low-end monsters.

“Vampires can instead choose to turn into these other terrifying things,” Bare explained. “One of them is called Bloodbags, this grotesque creature. It’s kind of like the vampire version of , it just produces an extra bloated amount of blood for vampires to sip when they’re thirsty.

The panel also confirmed that staking was one way to kill vampires, alongside a collection of conventional and DIY guns. Some of the more unusual items were shown, such as a broken guitar neck and a sharpened garden gnome. Of course, there are many ways to kill vampires.
