Trailer PC

The creators of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter are "alive and kicking". That's the message The Astronauts wanted to send yesterday during the The Game Awards with the gameplay teaser of Witchfire, their new dark fantasy FPS which already look quite unique. The title is still far away from release and is only announced at the moment for PC/Steam. Jump inside for 4K gameplay teaser.



The Astronauts Unveils Dark Fantasy FPS, Witchfire, With Gameplay Teaser at The Game Awards
Get your first look at the latest game from the team behind The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

Hey there! Adrian Chmielarz from The Astronauts here.

Have you been wondering what we’ve been up to lately? Well, the new game we’re working on is called Witchfire. It’s a dark fantasy first person shooter… and that’s all we can say at the moment. The game is still a long way from release and we are not announcing any other platforms than PC/Steam. The reason we’re launching the teaser so early is simply to let everyone know that we’re alive and kicking, and how radically different this new project of ours is compared to our previous game, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.

That change in direction isn’t anything new for the core team, though. The three co-owners of The Astronauts were also the co-owners of People Can Fly, as well as the creative leads behind shooters like Painkiller and Bulletstorm. While Witchfire is also a shooter, we’re aiming to make a game unlike anything we have done in the past, both in tone and in game mechanics.

As you can see in the teaser, Witchfire uses the photogrammetry tech we previously used in The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. This tech allows us to 3D scan real-life objects – even entire buildings! – and use them as digital assets in our games for unparalleled visual quality, and natural, organic look and feel. We believe we can push the tech even further, with new tools, hardware, and all the experience we gathered during the development of our first game and can’t wait to bring you along on the ride with us!

Finally, was waiting for the TGA 2017 trailers in high quality.

This game looks insanely gorgeous, the atmosphere very intense, the enemies design very disturbing and the gameplay looks very fun. Though none of these elements are surprising, giving the pedigree of the developers - The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Painkiller and Bulletstorm.

This also gives very Bloodborne vibes - FPS Bloodborne.
Eagerly awaiting to hear and see more of it.

If the gunplay is fast, arcadeish combo like as it was with Bulletstorm, it will be sweet.

It looked more like Painkiller than Bulletstorm in the preview, but it's all good stuff.

    MrWhite the other amazing thing in that video is the use of the node tools that can just be plugged whilst in VR. You can imagine devs in the future building games in VR instead of on a monitor. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite There's other videos showing it mapped to avatar eyes, and it's 1:1 movement. It even detects the size of the pupil and maps it to an object. (1 Hour ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Yeah, you'd have thought Valve would have put that in there. eye tracking with those controllers would have made it a true next gen headset. (1 Hour ago)

    toelessfoot Once eye tracking gets utilized it'll quickly become a must have feature I think (2 Hours ago)
