Firewatch Looks Incredible, Gets Debut Trailer + Screenshots, Releases In 2015

Now this came literally out of nowhere. Campo Santo Productions has just released the debut trailer and screenshots for its upcoming PC exclusive title, Firewatch. Firewatch is a single-player first-person video game where you, as a man named Henry, explore the Wyoming wilderness after taking a summer job as a fire lookout.

Firewatch is being developed by Campo Santo, a new independent video game studio in San Francisco.

“This is Campo’s first game, but its members have made some games you might’ve enjoyed, including Mark of the Ninja, Brutal Legend, The Cave, Bioshock II, and The Walking Dead: Season 1.”

Firewatch is powered by the Unity engine. As the team noted, along with other tools for various purposes, the game world is making use of SECTR Complete— an excellent piece of Unity streaming middleware developed by Nathan Martz.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
