Firewatch revealed

Firewatch revealed

Campo Santo is a new independent studio based in San Francisco and the developers were kind enough to send us the very first trailer of Firewatch in super high quality. In this game, you play the role of Henry, a man who's taken a job as a fire lookout and who has to watch the Wyoming wilderness. Of course, there is some kind of mystery to uncover, something that will most certainly affect Henry's life in many ways. It's all very intriguing, with a very realistic use of the first person perspective it seems, so we can't wait to see more. The game will be released in 2015 on Windows, Mac and Linux but the devs would also be happy to bring it to consoles.
Update: Some people had trouble playing the original downloaded file so we encoded a new version that should make it easier on their computer.

Actually, thank the devs who gave us a very quick answer today, with the dropbox link to the HQ trailer. :)

That graphic remind me old game which was released at 2003 XIII with Cel shading effect. Still cool looking game. :)

Interesting premise, loved the conversation, not sure about the character design those chubby hands etc... feels like something from Team fortress 2 and the trailer had a serious vibe, just doesn't mix right.

I like that style and setting a lot. Would be nice if it came to the PS4 down the line, as I'm not sure when I'll invest in a new PC.

Oh man... Seems like the PC is getting all the exciting exclusives. Serious drought on other platforms.

more and more Journey graphics influence (RIME, No Man's Sky) and now this.

Certainly purdy, will keep my eyes peeled for some gameplay.

About the game

    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (1 Hour ago)

    amerakindesi @Tiz: i see he had major impact on halo:ce, halo 2, halo 3odst...good sign (1 Hour ago)

    Tiz There are a couple of videos of him flitting about the 343 offices and talking about Halo memorabilia and while it isn't confirmed, I'd be surprised if he isn't on H6. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: Staten along with Marty O'Donnell was a key figure at Bungie and is now Senior Creative Director at Microsoft, he joined too late to influence Halo 5, but just in time to start Halo 6. (1 Hour ago)
