Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden Story Trailer Released

With just weeks away from Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden’s release, publisher Focus Entertainment and developer DON’T NOD have released a new trailer solely focused on the game’s “deeply enthralling and poignant story.”

Players who pick up the game next month will play from the perspective of Antea Duarte and Red Mac Raith, who are Banishers, which is the game’s term for spirit hunters. The setting is the titular New Eden in 1695, but tragedy has struck Antea, who dies but returns to her love as what she despises, a spirit as she follows Raith on his journey to bring her back from the great beyond.

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden was originally aiming for a 2023 release aiming for November but, in the lead up was delayed to the appropriate Valentine’s Day Eve due to a busy cycle of AAA releases during that time. Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden was revealed back at The Game Awards 2022 and will see players experience a narrative that “grapples with love, life, death, and sacrifice” with gameplay inspired by 2018’s  God of War alongside a narrative influenced by player choice.

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden will launch on February 13th for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
