The minds behind The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Bulletstorm unveiled their latest project.

Last night's Game Awards gave us a number of announcements, some new footage from a few anticipated games, and even a first look at some new titles coming soon. Among those games is Witchfire, from the studio behind The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. The Astronauts was founded by Bulletstorm developers Adrian Chmielarz, Andrzej Poznanski, and Michal Kosieradzki back in 2012. This new title is described as a "dark fantasy shooter" and the teaser gives us a glimpse at what we can expect: creepy environments, huge monsters, and some awesome first-person action.
From the gameplay footage shown so far, we can see a number of different weapons and even some kind of spellcasting. The environments look grim and are filled with all kinds of gruesome-looking enemies, some wielding weapons of their own. Among the details left out of this announcement are any kind of release date or what platforms this game will be available on. It seems like Witchfire is still a little ways off but we like what we see so far. What do you think?
