Is there multiplayer in Redfall?

Hoping to squad up or go solo? Here's everything you need to know about Redfall's Multiplayer!

Redfall is just the open-world vampire survival game players were looking for, with a deep, enriched story and colorful characters shining with unique personalities. While it offers an immersive single-player experience, if you're like me, you might enjoy it more if you can jump into the action with some friends by your side. Wondering if Redfall will include Multiplayer, then? The answer is yes, but it could be the best or worst way to play the game. Here are all the details!

Does Redfall have Online Co-Op?

Yes! Redfall has an Online Co-Op mode in which you can play alongside three friends — for four players total — in the same world. Unfortunately, it will not include a Splitcreen Co-Op mode, which means to play with others, each player must be on their own system. However, it will offer Cross-Play, allowing friends on PC or Xbox to still play together.

How many players can join Co-Op in Redfall?

Redfall is a 4-player Online Co-Op experience, which means you can only invite three other players to join your game at once. This is because it is heavily focused on the story of the experience, and each player must select one of the four main characters to play as. Each character has their own skills and abilities, making them different from each other.

The teamwork aspect makes the Multiplayer one of the best ways to play. Since each character's skills are different, combining them together is the best way to take down vampires around the world, especially bosses. You just won't have the same reaction when going in solo, and it could be far more challenging. Teamwork makes the dream work, as they say.

Do you share XP and Story-Progression in Redfall Co-Op?

Do you share story progression and experience when playing Redfall Co-Op? The answer is yes and no. The downfall of Redfall's Co-Op is all joining players are basically playing in the hosting player's server and world. As such, all players will progress the story together when exiting and rejoining the same server. However, if one of those joining players decided to host their own story, they wouldn't retain any of the story progression they made in their friend's game, and would have to repeat story missions and the main quests again.

The mixed progression approach may take away from the game's immersive qualities for players who value the story aspects, as they must regularly line up schedules and keep playing with the same host every time. However, this is only one downside to the experience and will not affect every player the same. Players will still maintain their character level, XP, and items either way, and it could still give them the opportunity to restart on their own, delve into the story in more detail, and perhaps experience it in a whole new light.
