Today, Arkane Studios has just unveiled the global release schedule for their one of their most highly anticipated Xbox titles yet, Redfall. Redfall is an upcoming co-op-focused, open-world first-person shooter where a group of survivors must band together to save the town of Redfall from a horde of evil vampires.

Redfall has been the subject of some controversy in recent weeks, owing to the fact the game will launch at 30 FPS with a 60 FPS mode "coming later." It joins games like Gotham Knights and Plague Tale: Requiem which also struggled to hit that golden 60 FPS mark that has become somewhat expected with the current generation of consoles.
