Way back in the before times, during the 2017 Game Awards, developers The Astronauts announced their new FPS, Witchfire. And for over four and a half years now, we’ve waited to finally see it emerge to deliver the same kind of goodness that Painkiller and Bulletstorm delivered. But making games such as this can be a long process, so things have been quiet for the longest time. But after this years-long dry spell, Witchfire finally emerged during today’s Summer Game Fest Kickoff to announce that the game is finally coming out soon…in Early Access. But hey, it still means we finally get to play it!
With the announcement comes another look at some of the gameplay, which you can check out below. It still looks like it perfectly scratches the retro-styled “boomer shooter” itch their previous games were known for, so it should fit right it in with a lot of current indie FPS titles. No release window yet, but it looks like Witchfire is an Epic Games Store exclusive at the moment, so keep a look out for it there.
