Redfall will not launch with 60FPS performance mode on Xbox consoles

Arkane Studios has announced that the Xbox versions of Redfall will not release with the 60FPS performance mode at launch. The quality mode is what will be available at Redfall’s launch. On Xbox Series X, this means the game running at 4K 30FPS, while on Xbox Series S Redfall will run at 1440p 30FPS. All that is known is that the performance mode will be released at a later, unknown date.

This follows critique of Redfall requiring an internet connection to play, though Arkane have hinted at trying to create an offline mode for Redfall. However, that is not a promise. In an interview with Eurogamer, game director Harvey Smith responded to the online pushback about the requirement saying, “There are people who live in places where there are outages or their broadband is shitty, or they’re competing with their family members, because their mum’s streaming a movie or their brother’s on another device. And so I think it is a legitimate critique.We do take it with a lot of empathy. We listen. And we have already started work to address this in the future. We have to do some things like encrypt your save games and do a bunch of UI work to support it. And so we are looking into – I’m not supposed to promise anything – but we’re looking into and working actively toward fixing that in the future.”

Arkane’s co-op vampire shooter is set to land on Xbox Series X|S and PC, and as part of the Xbox Game Pass library on 2nd May 2023.

  1. This is disappointing in a series of slightly disappointing announcements about Redfall.
