Firewatch Coming to Xbox One on September 21
Developer Campo Santo has unveiled that on September 21st they are releasing Firewatch, a first-person mystery set in the woods of Wyoming.
We here at XBA are sure that there are more than a few of you out there who may not know what this game is all about. Well, Firewatch is a first person mystery set in the woods of Wyoming. You play as a man named Henry and you’ve escaped your messy life for some peaceful time alone in the woods. Except you’re not alone: you’re in constant contact with a woman named Delilah who works in a nearby tower and your time quickly stops being peaceful.
The dev-team has spent a great amount of time making sure you can climb ropes, explore canyons, caves, mountain tops, old campsites and spooky cabins, we left out the ticks and poison oak and the dirt is all VFX.
They have also stated that they have really gone all-out for the Xbox One release. The game comes with the complete Firewatch Audio Tour, a making-of that takes the normal game mode and turns it into one part Director’s Commentary, one part Game Dev Workshop and wraps that all around a scavenger hunt. You’ll get stories from the development, hear from both Rich Sommer (Mad Men) and Cissy Jones (The Walking Dead), and get a real-time look at how we built this thing with such a small team. Also furthermore (yes, more furthermore!) Xbox One owners are getting a free-roam mode that lets you explore the entire Shoshone Wilderness of the game with dynamic time of day and a few hidden secrets.
Anyhow, for now you can check out the trailer below for more of what you are going to play:
