The Astronauts, the development studio not a group that goes into space, just revealed that the Early Access launch date for Witchfire is September 20, 2023.

Witchfire is a dark fantasy roguelite FPS. If that doesn't tell you much, then a new gameplay trailer is also available today. This new trailer was shared during the Summer Game Fest earlier this evening. The Early Access release will be for PC and only through the Epic Games Store.

The team behind Witchfire knows thing or two about making first-person shooters. The Astronauts was formed by the former leads at People Can Fly, the studio that brought us games like Painkiller and Bulletstorm. The studio's first game, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, was released in 2014 to generally favorable reviews.

Witchfire is a first-person shooter set in a grimdark fantasy world in which a deadly war rages between powerful witches and the Church. In this alternate reality, witches are very real and very dangerous— but so is the witch hunter, also known as a preyer. Armed by Vatican sorcerers, players wield an ungodly array of guns and forbidden magic as they combat dark terrors on behalf of their shadowy benefactors.
