The Vanishing of Ethan Carter developer announces dark fantasy shooter Witchfire

Witchfire, the next game coming from The Astronauts, the developer of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, is "a dark fantasy shooter". Wish I had a bit more to tell you—it's also coming from the creators of Painkiller and Bulletstorm, according to the teaser above which aired at The Game Awards—but beyond that we don't know much. We'll update you when we learn more (like when it's coming and indeed if it's  coming to PC). It sure looks pretty, though.

Christopher Livingston

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
