Do you need an internet connection to play Redfall?

Unfortunately, you need to have an always-on internet connection to play Redfall.

Yes, you must be online and connected to the Redfall servers, even if you don’t want to join other players in the co-op mode and prefer to play solo. Here is the official FAQ that you can find on the Bethesda website. It says that the game requires a persistent Internet connection for both single player and co-op.

The website states that "a persistent online connection is required for single player and co-op." This suggests there won't be a future update to resolve this, removing the always-online requirement.

So while the game can be played in single player mode, it still requires a stable internet connection the whole way through. Therefore, you may be better off just biting the bullet and playing Redfall in co-op, as it is intended to be experienced. Of course, if you don't have a squad to slay vampires with, solo play will still work.
