One of the big announcements tonight during The Game Awards was from the Creators of the Vanishing of Ethan Carter… but also Painkillers and Bulletstorm comes Witchfire. It’s a dark fantasy shooter than honestly looks right up my alley. I would say that out of all the game announcements, this was surprisingly the one I was most stoked about and it’s a game by Polish developer The Astronauts.
Like the Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Witchfire looks like a beautiful place to explore. It’s a scenic game that makes the trees and grass pop but unlike Ethan Carter, there is shooting, which the trailer cleverly points out. You can check out the trailer below:
The enemies we get a look at in the trailer are horrifying and strange. The environments are beautiful and they include forests, swamps and what looks like a haunted mansion, while the action in the game seems rapid and adrenaline-inducing.
The game is only confirmed for PC but I wouldn’t be surprised if it came to consoles later.
