New gameplay footage for The Astronauts’ new first-person shooter, Witchfire, emerges

The Astronauts has released a short gameplay video for its upcoming first-person dark fantasy shooter, Witchfire. This short video will give you a glimpse at some of the gameplay mechanics that this new shooter will feature.

As you will see from this short clip, the Painkiller influences are pretty straightforward, something that may please the fans of that particular franchise. Moreover, the game will feature hit/damage numbers similar to those found in looter shooters like Destiny 2 and Borderlands.

Witchfire is a dark fantasy shooter inspired by Painkiller and Bulletstorm, will be using photogrammetry and will be powered by Epic’s Unreal Engine 4. While the game will focus on challenge and mastery, it is said that it will not be a story-based game.

The Astronauts aims to release Witchfire in 2020.
