More On: Witchfire

Upcoming dark fantasy first-person shooter Witchfire from developer The Astronauts is getting support for NVIDIA’s DLSS 3 technology, the studio announced today. They also shared a brand new gameplay trailer, which features the game’s new open-level design, after the developers switched from arena-style gameplay last year.

DLSS 3 will allow Witchfire to include high-quality visuals while not compromising on framerate. The Astronauts co-founder Adrian Chmielarz said in the announcement that the Deep Learning Super Sampling 3 technology is pivotal to a game like Witchfire, where both graphics and performance are equally important:

“You start the game, push all graphics options to the max. You enjoy it for a while but then, especially if it’s an action game, you realize that the framerate is king. So you start lowering the quality of visuals in order to achieve that smooth gameplay. DLSS 3 allows the seemingly impossible, high framerate without compromising the visuals. A no brainer for a game like Witchfire, which is both action and beauty.”

The Astronauts is a Polish studio founded in 2012 by the original founders of fellow Polish developer People Can Fly. Their first game was 2014’s The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Witchfire, their second game, is scheduled to release in early access on PC in 2023, and you can check out the gorgeous new gameplay trailer right here:
