Physical Copies of Redfall Won’t Include A Disc

If you still believe in the beauty of physical games, Redfall doesn’t seem to be the game for you. Bethesda has revealed that if you decide to buy a physical copy of Redfall, you won’t actually get the disc.

“The code contained in physical PC copies of Redfall are Steam codes,” the support message says. “Physical Xbox copies of Redfall are Xbox Play Anywhere codes that can [be] playable on both the Xbox Series X|S and the Microsoft Xbox app on PC.”

While it’s not unheard of for publishers to do this, it’s rare for first-party titles to follow this method in standard editions. Many still prefer physical media for one reason or another. Selling copies in the store just to get fans a code to download the game anyway is definitely wrong for the players.

Not only do they not get a disc, but the game always requires an online connection just to play it. This alone can cause a whole different set of problems if the game doesn’t perform well enough for Microsoft or Bethesda.

Insider Gaming has reached out to Bethesda for comment on the fact that Redfall will not come with a disc containing physical copies. If there is an answer, it will be added.

Redfall will be released on 2 May for the aforementioned Xbox Series X|S and PC.
