Xbox Game Pass Players Are Heading For New Zealand To Play Redfall Early

It's that time once again! On the eve of Redfall's big Xbox Game Pass launch, players are discovering that with a simple settings change they can play the game a full 12 hours early.

Yep, Arkane's new vampiric looter shooter has officially landed in New Zealand, which means that the nation is about to fill up with Xbox Game Pass players looking to play the game as soon as possible.

If you want to know how to switch to New Zealand on Xbox, here's how you do it:

How To 'Move To New Zealand' For Redfall On Xbox

  1. Sign in to your Xbox console.
  2. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
  3. Select Settings > All Settings > System > Language & location.
  4. Select your new location from the Location list, and then select Restart now.

Before you do this, we can't stress enough that switching regions on Xbox is something to do at your own risk. It's a tactic Xbox owners have been using for a long time, but there's always the potential of getting punished for it.... the ball is in Microsoft's court with this one.

Keep in mind that Microsoft also advises changing regions can potentially lock you out of changing to another one for a period of three months, although we've never seen any reports of this happening. As long as you're not doing this sort of thing every week you should be OK!
