Firewatch is coming to Xbox One, developer Campo Santo announced.
Detailed in a blog post, you’ll be able to play the first game from the studio on your Xbox One on September 21. It was previously a PlayStation 4 and PC exclusive.
While the full game will be playable on Xbox One, it will also come with a new Firewatch Audio Tour feature. While few details were given regarding the new mode, it’s described as “one part scavenger hunt, one part museum tour, one part game dev workshop, mixed with a dash of inside Campo Santo goofs.”
Additionally, a new free-roam mode is coming to the game, where you’re free to explore the game’s setting of Shoshone and “explore with a few hidden secrets.” Both new modes will also come to all customers as free updates.
In our review of Firewatch earlier this year, we said, “Campo Santo has managed to bring out the best elements of two of modern gaming’s most narrative-driven genres. In doing so, they created something special and unique. Even if the early transversal of its large world did leave the first hour feeling a bit slow and the end didn’t quite hit the high mark set by the rest of the game, the relationship between Henry and Delilah was excellent throughout. In almost every way that matters, Firewatch delivered a plotline in outstanding style, with the storytelling confidence and deftness promised by its opening minutes. Needless to say, it’s a remarkable debut for Campo Santo and well worth a look for any interested in the bright future of narrative-based games.”
