Firewatch delayed on Xbox One in Europe


Firewatch delayed on Xbox One in Europe

Firewatch is good stuff, especially if you're a fan of a well told story, gorgeous graphics and a rather languid pace - which I just so happen to be.

The game originally launched on PC and PS4 back in February 2016 and was pretty much a delight. For those who have been waiting for the release on Xbox One, there's good news and and bad news.

The good stuff first - you'll be the first group to get access to a Free-Roam mode for the game, so you can presumably ignore the story and just wander around the stunning locales to your heart's content. There's also an audio tour on the way to give you a reason to dive back in.

The less good news is that while folks in the US, South America, Canada, Mexico and Russia can play it now on Xbox One, the release has been delayed in Europe. According to developers Campo Santo, that's down to some kind of ratings issue, and the new projected date is the 30th of September.

Hey it's worth the wait, and we're looking forward to giving the audio tour a free roaming a go when they arrive on the other platforms.
