The Hunt Begins: Witchfire Blazes into Early Access with a Scorching Hot Gameplay Trailer

Posted September 20, 2023
WARSAW, Poland (September 20th, 2023)— The Astronauts just launched Witchfire, the grimdark first-person shooter, into Early Access, and unveiled a sizzling new gameplay trailer. This is the first time the studio has shared long-form gameplay footage; with deadly traps and vicious undead hordes on full display, the trailer shows the fell fates that await the ill-equipped. Those eager to join the hunt can purchase the game now, exclusively from the Epic Games Store for $39.99 USD. 
In Witchfire, players wield freedom to hunt the way they choose with a wide arsenal of weapons and magics. This is a roguelite home for wayward players looking to immerse themselves in a dark world and meet challenges with even darker solutions.” said Adrian Chmielarz, Creative Director and Co-Founder of The Astronauts.

Armed with forbidden pagan magic and infernal firearms as one of the Vatican’s elite preyers,  players will experience a world that adapts to their progress. The longer a preyer brazenly clings to life, amassing more power and a greater arsenal, the Witch will sense this growing threat and send forth deadly cataclysms and more powerful minions. Greater success means greater challenges to conquer. 

Preyers have the freedom to choose their methods of witch-hunting: a sharpshooter’s agile fingers, a tactician’s analytical mind, or the warlock’s eldritch might and magical relics. Select or combine these tactics to determine the most suitable path to victory. Furthermore, the preyer is not bound by time restrictions— you can rush into a huge mob of enemies, eliminate them one by one from afar, steer clear of a fight, or provoke more battles for bigger rewards. Only you decide which path to embark upon.

Witchfire released to Early Access today for Windows players, exclusively on the Epic Games Store.

About The Astronauts
In 2012, the original founders of People Can Fly and the creative leads behind Painkiller and Bulletstorm started a new independent studio. They named it The Astronauts to emphasize the idea of visiting unknown worlds and taking risky but exciting new directions— which explains why their first game, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, was a weird fiction horror, and the second, Witchfire, is a dark fantasy first-person shooter.
