When you think of of Focus Entertainment, Don’t Nod, and action-RPG games, you may imagine Vampyr. And while a sequel to that game seems like it might happen in the future, the two surprised everyone at the Game Awards with a new IP, Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden, whose announcement trailer you can check out below.
As the title may suggest, Banishers centers around a pair of ghost hunters, Antea and Red, who also happen to be lovers in this 17th century world of New Eden. However, when Antea gets mortally wounded while on a mission and now finds themselves on the verge of becoming a spirit themselves, it’s time to search for a way out of this predicament. While the trailer is mainly cinematic, we do get a slight dash of combat at the end. Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden is due out at the end of 2023 for PC, XSX, and PS5, giving us something to look forward to about a year from now.
