How to fix the Redfall Incompatible Build error

Fixing the Incompatible Build error message in Redfall is incredibly easy but also not. This error occurs when your game version/ or build differs from the main build running the servers. If, for example, they are preparing to add a patch, the central hub will have the update before anyone else, meaning everyone else's version will be out of date until a patch appears. If you are still online, you will get kicked off, and this error will occur.

I experienced this in the review build, the server updated first, and I had to wait for the patch to be pushed forward to me many hours later. So patience is the only fix for this error. As a backup, verify your copy of Redfall to ensure it's up-to-date.

What is the Redfall Incompatible Build?

The Redfall Incompatible Build is an error that happens when your version of Redfall does not match the version on Bethesda and Arkane's servers. As Redfall uses an online connection, having the updated version is essential to playing the game.

Certain missions were unplayable due to issues with the game that stemmed from having an outdated product. The update patch should have fixed these issues and removed the Incompatible Build error. If you encounter further errors, Arkane and Bethesda may be looking into it and working on a patch. You can always reach out to Bethesda support for more support on Redfall.
