GSY Video PS4 Xbox One PC

Firewatch is now on available on Xbox One and we give you a few minutes of gameplay captured at the very beginning of the adventure. The Xbox One version is not above reproach, as it suffers from random mini-freezes, but it should not ruin the experience to you, as we managed to reach the end of this version and to enjoy it a lot.

GSY Live PS4 PC

Later today, we'll have two videos of Firewatch for you guys, but until then, let us announce that we will be live tonight for about 30 minutes to answer your questions and show you the game. If you're curious, join us at around 9:45 CET (GMT+1).
Update: Replay added.

To illustrate Firewatch-17526_en.html" target="_blank" >our full review of Firewatch, here is a couple of gameplay videos of the PC version. Because we didn't want to spoil anything, they reveal nothing about the story but the first one shows some of the environments. We'll be live for 30 minutes from 9h45 pm CET to answer your questions if the videos aren't enough to make up your mind.

GSY Review PS4 PC

As soon as it was announced back in September 2014, we were immediately seduced by Firewatch, its fantastic art style and its original theme. A year and a half later, after completing this very immersive narrative adventure, we can say we were right to believe in its potential. We are now going to explain to you why, despite its rather short length (almost 5 hours as far as we're concerned), it is absolutely worth your time. The tricky part is we cannot allow ourselves to include any spoilers in the article, but we love a good challenge. After Unravel, here comes another case of love at first sight on Gamersyde, one we're happy to detail in a full review.

Firewatch was shown in a brand new trailer during the Sony press conference early this morning. We haven't found the direct feed video yet but until we do, here is the off-screen capture Miguel did for us.

Trailer PC

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.

  • Seth

  • Seth

    Seth sry my mistake, ye i wanted to say that they are huge fans of first parties and ready to move on and wait ages for eventual pc port. (2 Days ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog there are people out there who are going to wait for PS5 before playing last of us 2. but even that sort of wait sounds far too excruciating to me. (2 Days ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @Seth: i mean, it's a viable option, but if you were a big fan of sony exclusives to begin with you'd need to have an insane amount of patience to wait 3 years to play it on PC (2 Days ago)

  • Seth

    Seth @KORNdog: yeah i don't see this happen anytime soon. it's why i find funny some people suddenly say ''i'm done, after 25 years with ps, moving to pc''. (2 Days ago)
