An Actual Trailer Surfaces for ‘The Vanishing of Ethan Carter’

EthanCarterBD

Outside of a few teasers, The Astronauts have smartly kept from showing too much of their upcoming supernatural thriller, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. The game is being made by former People Can Fly devs (Bulletstorm, Gears of War: Judgment), and follows a detective who’s on the hunt for a missing boy. While I’m always up for a good mystery, what’s most exciting about this game is its use of photogrammetry technology.

I’m not one to ever put visuals above narrative, but the tech behind Ethan Carter will give the game a near-photorealistic look, thanks to its use of actual photos. You can enjoy the gorgeous results of this new tech in the trailer below.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is slated to release this fall on PC.

    the vanishing of ethan carter? he didn’t vanish! he’s on that shitty show called impact wrestling! that is absurd.

    I’m looking forward to this game – People Can Fly showed some great narrative in Bulletstorm (seriously, its script is so good!) and I’m curious how they handled Lovecraftian themes –, although I wish it had more stylized environment. If I wanted photorealism, I could go to the forest for real. Also, the animation quality seems to be quite poor and the caricature-esque characters don’t really match the rest of visuals.

      Don’t go in the forest, that’s what Slender Man wants you to do.

        Actually, I dared to go there yesterday. I haven’t met Slender Man, but the amount of pages on trees was kind of unsettling.

          XD I love it.

    I really thought this was a real movie trailer at first, those graphics are gorgeous.
