Redfall Fails To Deliver On New Heroes Promise On First Anniversary Despite Charging For Hero Pass At Launch

Redfall has failed to deliver on developer Arkane Austin’s promise of bringing new heroes on its first anniversary, despite charging players for the Hero Pass at launch.

Back at launch on May 2, 2023, Bethesda Game Studios and Arkane Studios had promised 2 new heroes in Redfall to those who would purchase its Hero Pass. A year later on its first anniversary, owners of the Bite Back digital deluxe edition, which includes access to the Hero Pass, have yet to receive either of the aforementioned new heroes.

As seen in the promotional image above, included in the Bite Back digital deluxe edition of Redfall is a copy of the game for Xbox Series X and PC, the engineering volunteer outfit for Remi, the northern expedition outfit for Devinder, the war clothes outfit for Layla, the eyes in the dark outfit for Jacob, the laser beam multi-weapon skin, the tactical knife stake weapon attachment, and the Hero Pass, with access to “two future heroes”.

At this point, it’s well-known that Redfall had a shaky launch marred by lack of content and performance problems. There has been a general lack of interest in Redfall since its release, with the game making a swift exit from the top 50 most played games list on Xbox in less than a month after launch.

Since then, the developer has updated the game a number of times to address some of its issues. As per SteamDB (see above), the game’s DLC depot is still receiving regular updates on Steam, suggesting that content is still being worked on. However, the silence from both the development studio as well as the publisher would come as a disappointment to fans who spent extra on the Redfall Bite Back digital deluxe edition at launch in the hope of playing as 2 new heroes at some point. A year later, they’re still waiting.
