Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden

An In-Depth Look at Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden Gameplay

With some lore and story set up as well

Since it was announced, Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden has been an interesting new IP we here at Console Creatures have been eager to check out.

Now, the teams at publisher Focus Entertainment and developer DON’T NOD have released a trailer that shows off some gameplay elements and breaks down how your choices throughout your adventure will change how the story unfolds. With a curse affecting New Eden’s people, you play as a duo of Banishers, trying to prevent spectres from taking those around you.

As Antea and Red, you’ll be juggling different attacks from both the natural and spirit world. Red is equipped with a sword, rifle and firebane, while Antea uses her spirit-realm abilities. The trailer shows off some exciting combos and approaches that allow you to switch between the two. You’ll also be able to dodge and parry to create counterattacks.

Advanced skills include a Banish gauge that Red can build up. This allows him to use items and weapons that act as if they’re imbued or “powered up,” making your attacks more effective against the dead. With a skill tree, you can also link his active and passive abilities with Anthea’s powers.

Antea’s spectral abilities are fed by the “essence of the living,” as you may have to banish those you are supposed to save along your journey. The trailer shows off a few special AoE attacks and tells you that combining your moves with both characters can unleash devastating combo attacks to take down your foes.

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden is set to launch on February 13th for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series.
