the next arkane redfall (opens in new tab), an open-world co-op FPS in which you and three friends shoot vampires, will not track missions you complete in a friend’s game. So if you join someone else’s game and complete a quest, but you haven’t done it in your own world, you’ll have to do it again when you host your own game.
Crucially, however, Redfall will save character progress, such as experience and items gained from player campaigns. For many, that will be the only thing that matters.
It seems to be the case that, being an open world game, the designers of Redfall didn’t want the story to be broken up into chunks thrown out of order.
Game director Harvey Smith said IGN (opens in new tab) that “for the flow of things” players would have to redo missions they had already done elsewhere. “The story would be very confusing if you got to mission eight and said, ‘skip this one because you’ve already done that’.”
