Guided by Delilah, a puzzling female voice over walkie talkie, Henry is coerced into investigating a number of unexplained occurrences and disappearances in this wilderness. One tense moment includes the revelation that your lookout tower–now in the distance–has been taken over by a mysterious character. Interactions with Delilah aren’t mandatory and it will be up to you to decide how much you wish to trust her. Firewatch is also notable for its art direction, led by illustrator and poster designer Olly Moss.
The game will be released for PlayStation 4 sometime this year.
