October 12, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Unveiled at E3 2015 as a console-first title on PlayStation 4, Firewatch from developer Campo Santo is releasing on February 9, 2016 in North America and Europe for PS4 and PC/Mac.

Here’s the description for Firewatch:

Firewatch is a mystery set in the Wyoming wilderness, where your only emotional lifeline is the person on the other end of a handheld radio.

In Firewatch you play as a man named Henry who has retreated from his messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched high atop a mountain, it’s your job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe. An especially hot, dry summer has everyone on edge. Your supervisor, a woman named Delilah, is available to you at all times over a small, handheld radio — and is your only contact with the world you’ve left behind.

But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the world, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making interpersonal choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have.

Campo Santo didn’t reveal any new details about Firewatch today, only saying, “Right now we’re still polishing, optimizing, writing, and developing the last bits of the game, but we can’t wait to put it out there for you to play. Our goal is a worldwide simultaneous release!”

You can expect more information about Firewatch as February 9 approaches.
