Redfall, the upcoming vampire-themed FPS by Arkane Studios set to be released sometime this year has apparently had its retail price leaked – and it does not come cheap. The launch price of the game in Europe has surfaced online courtesy of deals leaker billbil-kun on Twitter, and it looks as though it will be around the €80 ($87) mark. We cannot independently verify this leak, so please take it with a pinch of salt.
According to this source, upgrading Redfall for Xbox Series X to the deluxe edition will push the price to €110 ($120). Compared to other recent releases for Xbox and even with recent gaming price hikes, this appears to be a bit costly. Redfall prices for other regions has yet to surface for comparison. However, with prices tending not to change all that must based on location, it’s unlikely it will be much better elsewhere.

This price rise may come as no surprise to some, given the comments made by Xbox boss Phil Spencer back in October. When asked about price increases in the future, he said, “I do think at some point we’ll have to raise the prices on certain things, but going into this holiday, we thought it was important to maintain the prices.”
Despite there currently being no release date for Redfall, rumors via Twitter suggested that the game may have been pushed back to May this year, after originally suggesting it was releasing in March. Regardless of its delays (and now the news of its retail price), fans have been excited for its release since it was first announced back in June of 2021.
An open-world multiplayer FPS where you can take on the city’s elusive vampires is enough to excite fans of both the genre and Arkane Studios themselves, so it is no surprise that Redfall is highly anticipated. With the development team promising that “Redfall is our most ambitious game yet, and we can’t wait to show it off soon,” we eagerly await its release.
