Firewatch coming to Xbox One in September

firewatchCampo Santo’s Firewatch released in February for PlayStation and PC, and since then, it has been lauded with praise. Firewatch is a first person exploration experience that sees you playinng the role of a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness set in 1989. Mysterious events begin taking place, and it’s up to you to find out the truth about what’s going on.

“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.”

Firewatch will allow you to climb ropes, explore canyons, caves, mountain tops, old campsites and spooky cabins, and use your walkie-talkie for communication.

“Firewatch will also come with a 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.”

Look forward to playing Firewatch, not Overwatch, which I accidentally typed at first, on September 21st.
