Arkane confirmed that Redfall won't allow players to team up with AI in the single-player campaign, which aims to be a true Arkane experience. 

If you're a fan of Arkane Studios' games and their immersive-sim genre, you'll be happy to hear that the upcoming Redfall will be very similar to those previous titles, despite being heavily marketed as a four-player co-op title.

In the latest blog post, Arkane clarified a few things regarding the single-player campaign, confirming that players can play the campaign solo in its entirety, without any AI teammates if they so desire.

"Arkane has always been known for crafting narrative-driven, single-player campaigns that allow players unprecedented levels of agency, and Redfall is carrying on that tradition. While this is Arkane’s first co-op experience, you can also play through the entire game on your own," they said. "Should you choose to play alone, you won’t be joined by AI teammates, making it a truly solo experience."

They add that if players choose to play alone, they can set their own pace, determine strategies, explore the city of Redfall and take on the vampires as and when they wish.

All in all, that's plenty of good news for Arkane fans, who enjoyed Prey, Dishonored and the studios' other critically acclaimed games over the years. 

Hopefully, we'll get to see more footage of the game's single-player campaign very soon and perhaps, get more details on the story itself as we approach the 2023 release date. 

Redfall is exclusive to the Xbox ecosystem, meaning that it's releasing on Xbox Series X|S consoles and PC.
