Today we’ve been treated to the first in a series of Redfall character trailers that will be released leading up to the game’s release on May 2. First up is Layla Ellison, the “Telekinetic Threat.”
The trailer reveals some of Layla’s unique powers as well as a bit of her backstory. What are those powers, you ask?
- Umbrella: Summon a psychic umbrella that can be used to block enemy projectiles.
- Lift: Summon a psychic lift to catapult Layla into the air, which can be used to access higher-altitude areas or launch foes into the air.
- Jason: Summon Layla’s vampire ex-boyfriend to deal out some extra damage. This sounds like it could be particularly useful when Layla finds herself surrounded.
It looks like Layla will be a pretty well-rounded character in terms of both offense and defense, and more than capable of holding her own in a skirmish.
With the game’s release date now less than a month away, we can probably expect to see the remaining character trailers on a weekly basis. Redfall will be available for Xbox Series X|S and PC on Game Pass day one.
Developer: Bethesda Softworks
