A Witchfire gameplay video that debuted as a part of Nvidia’s CES showcase seems to reply the query, “What if Doom and Elden Ring had a child, and that child was additionally a recreation?” The gritty fantasy FPS recreation options weapons, magic, and a plague-ridden setting wherein gamers will dish out punishment with a spread of arcane firearms – a contemporary spin on Van Helsing, or the basic Heretic and Hexen video games, maybe.
We first caught wind of Witchfire means again on the 2017 Recreation Awards, and developer The Astronauts have been fairly quiet about it since then. Now we’ve some contemporary particulars: it takes place within the midst of a cataclysmic conflict between highly effective witches and the church, and each witches and witch hunters – that’s you – are imbued with immense energy.
Within the case of witch hunters, that energy takes the type of forbidden magic and enchanted weapons, each of that are used to nice impact within the trailer above. There are crossbows, shotguns, repeating rifles, revolvers – plus some nice spell results that may trigger chain reactions or freeze a strong enemy mid-attack.
The Astronauts says Witchfire will assist DLSS 3.0 in the event you’re rocking probably the greatest graphics playing cards in Nvidia’s lineup, which implies “excessive framerate with out compromising the visuals,” based on co-founder Adrian Chmeilarz.
Witchfire is also semi-roguelike and options what The Astronauts calls an “open degree design” – it’s not an open-world recreation, thoughts you, however you gained’t be funneled by way of a particular hall in every stage, both.
There’s no Witchfire launch date set but, nevertheless it’ll be accessible on the Epic Video games Retailer “quickly,” which we assume means later this 12 months.
