Firewatch is a pretty damn gorgeous game, with a distinctive art style that makes the most of its wilderness setting. Playing through the story was a rather guided experience though. You could wander off the beaten path a little, but you weren’t given free reign over where to go and when. That changes with the free-roam mode, which lets you wander off and explore to your heart’s content, with a dynamic 24-hour clock that has the sun and moon taking turns to crawl across the sky.
This was included in the Xbox One version of the game from day one, but has now been added to PlayStation 4 and Steam.
The patch also rolls in enhancements for the PlayStation 4 Pro that is out today. Playing on a 1080p display, level of detail distance has been increased, loading times have been smoothed out and shadows are of higher quality. Playing on a 4K display, the game is now rendered at 1440p while the overlaid with a 4K UI.
Anyone planning on heading back to got watch some fires?
