Redfall requires a ‘permanent online connection’, even in single player

Arkane’s upcoming vampire shooter Redfall (opens in new tab) puts a lot of emphasis on co-op multiplayer, but also supports solo play: The Steam (opens in new tab) page describes it as “an open world, single player and co-op FPS.” In case you’re not convinced, Pete Hines, Bethesda’s head of communications, also specifically stated that you can “play it alone.” Unfortunately, even playing solo, you still need to be online.

The “always online” requirement was revealed in a Redfall FAQ (opens in new tab), stating “single player and co-op require a permanent online connection.” That’s about as unambiguous as it gets: if you want to play, you have to be connected. You will also need to link with your Steam or Xbox user ID to play.
