Firewatch Hits on Xbox One on September 21 with Audio Tour, Free-Roam Mode
Forest park adventure Firewatch, the first-person adventure video game, is set for release on Xbox One from September 21, its developer Campo Santo has announced. The video game was released in February this year for PC and Sony PlayStation 4. However, Xbox One owners were left disappointed because the game has taken months to arrive on the console.
“You’ve been inquiring and those inquiries were not falling on deaf ears. We’re thrilled to finally be sharing Firewatch with our friends in the Xbox community,” says Campo Santo.
The game developer released a new trailer of Firewatch and has confirmed the free update for the game across all platforms.
“Along with the main game, we’re also shipping the Firewatch Audio Tour (a free update for all customers!) which we’ll talk a little bit more about tomorrow. The short version: one part scavenger hunt, one part museum tour, one part game dev workshop, mixed with a dash of inside Campo Santo goofs,” added Campo Santo.
Additionally, the game developer is also introducing a new free-roam mode to Firewatch, which will allow players to explore the game’s world and discover embedded secrets in the world. Xbox One owners will be the first to get this mode and other platforms will have to wait a few weeks for the novel mode.
