Redfall preload goes live while mysterious 60fps physical copies appear in the wild

The wait is almost over. The impending release of Redfall is more palpable than ever with the game now available to pre-install on Xbox Series X|S consoles and PC. Respective download sizes are a follows:

  • Xbox Series S: 40GB
  • Xbox Series X: 77GB
  • Windows PC: 103GB

Note that these are subject to change, especially if Arkane adds a new update before the game’ actual release on May 2.

And in some related news, images of a physical copy of Redfall advertising 60 frames per second on the box have been making the rounds online. Note the sticker on the box proclaiming “60FPS performance mode not available at launch.”

Whether this is real or not, we’ll leave it for you to form your own opinions. But if it is indeed legit, it would certainly suggest that a performance mode will be coming to the game sooner rather than later.

We reported a few weeks back that Redfall would launch without a performance mode option, meaning that a 30fps framerate would be locked in. The news came much to the consternation of fans who’ve been eagerly anticipating the game for months.

Anyways, we’ll be sinking our fangs into one of the year’s most anticipated games very soon. Here’s hoping Redfall lives up to expectations.
