The Redfall location is going to be split into two districts: 1 and 2. The first district is located downtown ont he east part of the island. The second district is on the west side and it encompasses a more rural area, featuring buildings such as churches and farms.

The setting follows Redfall after a failed scientific experient which resulted in a legion of vampires invading and isolating the town from the rest of the world. Every area shoulf be accessible as it will be an open-world game. Each district harbours its own little neighbourhoods that can be explored.

While adventuring alone or with your party in Redfall's co-op mode, you will also find safehouses scattered throughout the map where you can stop to replenish supplies and pick up quests from locals.
