Bethesda and Arkane Studios’ upcoming vampire-themed shooter Redfall will require users to connect to the Internet if they want to play solo. Redfall’s single player mode will require a “persistent internet connection” for you to play.
This news may come as a disappointment to some players, as the internet connection requirement means that players will not be able to enjoy the game’s story at all times, especially for those who prefer to play on the go using a gaming laptop. The connection should also be constant, so there is no funny matter with connecting and disconnecting.
This information was revealed in Redfall’s Official FAQ page, which also reveals a few more things. Here is the full list of frequently asked questions below:
