Focus Entertainment, in collaboration with DON’T NOD, is set to release an emotionally charged action RPG, Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden, on February 13, 2024. This game promises to immerse players in a tale of love, sacrifice, and fate against a backdrop of supernatural threats.
The newly released story trailer offers a glimpse into the heart-wrenching journey of Antea Duarte and Red mac Raith, seasoned spirit hunters tasked with aiding the settlers of New Eden. Tragedy strikes when Antea is killed and transformed into the very entity she fought against – a ghost. This unforeseen event leaves her partner, Red, in a heartrending dilemma: to fulfill their sworn duty to protect the living from malevolent spirits or to grapple with the reality of losing his mentor and lover.
Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden is more than just a game; it’s an exploration of the intricate dynamics between love and duty, life and death. Players will navigate a complex emotional landscape, forced to choose between the living and their beloved. The game’s rich narrative delves deep into the lives and secrets of New Eden’s communities, plagued by supernatural creatures.
As players progress through the game, they will wield Antea’s spiritual powers and Red’s arsenal to confront and banish tormented souls. Their journey will take them through mysterious landscapes, where they’ll encounter memorable characters and uncover hidden truths. The fate of these characters and the world of New Eden rests in the players’ hands.
In addition to the standard edition, Focus Entertainment offers exclusive editions for collectors and fans. The Red Echoes Edition includes a leather-bound journal with Red’s memories, an ink writing set, the game, and downloadable Wanderer Set content. The Collector’s Edition boasts a statuette of Red and Antea, a 128-page artbook, an official Steelbook, and two Banishers’ signet rings. These special editions are available exclusively at the Focus Entertainment Store and are limited in quantity.
Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, and the Epic Games Store.
