Firewatch follow up In the Valley of Gods announced at The Game Awards 2017.

Firewatch developer Campo Santo brought a trailer announcing its new project to tonight’s The Game Awards show.

Called In the Valley of Gods, it’s a story-driven adventure set in Egypt, which we’re all pretty hot on right now thanks to Assassin’s Creed: Origins. This is what Campo Santo had to say about the project:

From the creators of Firewatch, In the Valley of Gods is a single-player first-person adventure. Explore a remote and ancient valley in the Egyptian desert, uncovering treasure and treachery in pursuit of a discovery that could bring you fame and fortune—or leave you for dead, buried beneath the sands.

If you’ve played Firewatch, you’ll know we can probably expect a story with more to it than first appears and pretty vibrant characters. Check out the trailer below:

We don’t have many details yet but judging by the game’s website it has only been confirmed for PC. Sony and Microsoft would be silly not to try and get it on their platforms, however, given how well-received Firewatch was. Cross your fingers.

Stay tuned for more information over the coming months, I guess; the link above should get you to social channels and whatnot so you can keep your beady and beautiful little eye fixed right to it.
