Dontnod Entertainment has taken narrative video gaming to the next level with Life is Strange. To this day, the story of Chloe and Max is a milestone in video game history and is still extremely popular. Since then, it hasn’t been possible to get quite close to his debut work, but the fans have remained loyal to the studio. But now they seem to be realigning themselves, in a new genre and far darker. At least that’s what the brand new trailer for Banishers: Ghosts Of A New Eden suggests. As an action role-playing game, you should take up arms in 2023 and destroy the undead in an emotional story:
New Eden, 1695. Antea Duarte and Red mac Raith are lovers and so-called Banishers – ghost hunters sworn to protect the living from the dangers of spirits and wraiths who refuse to leave our world. However, on her last mission, Antea was mortally wounded and turned into one of the spirits she hates so deeply. In the cursed wilderness of North America, the couple desperately searches for a way to free Antea from her new fate.
Immerse yourself in the wonderful, intimate and emotional story of two people whose love was preordained. As a banisher, you help the residents of the communities in New Eden and drive out the spirits that plague them. Immerse yourself in a mystical world rich in history, where supernatural creatures are up to mischief and unveil ancient secrets. Use your brain to solve puzzles and combine Antea’s and Red’s skills in combat and exploration to banish the lost souls that torment the living.
Banishers: Ghosts Of A New Eden is scheduled for release in 2023 for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.
