Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden Revealed From DONTNOT; Based in an Alternate Life is Strange Universe?

Focus Entertainment announced they will publish the DONTNOD Entertainment-developed action adventure Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam towards the end of 2023.

Sadly, after multiple viewings of the trailer, we have determined this game is not based in the Life is Strange universe.

“We’re so excited to finally lift the veil on Banishers, a project born from our long-standing partnership with DONTNOD,” says John Bert, Managing Director at Focus Entertainment. “The studio has an unmatched talent for creating worlds that are as unique as they are immersive. They are amazing storytellers who know how to truly enhance an efficient, innovative gameplay with narrative and emotions. That’s exactly what they are doing with Banishers. It’s a very ambitious project, which is sure to receive a very warm welcome from players all around the world.”

“I am very proud of the talented team hard at work developing this exciting new action-RPG and delighted to once again have the privileged support of our accomplished partner Focus Entertainment,” shares Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DONTNOD. “We are very excited to be at The Game Awards for this announcement and hope that this first teaser gives players a glimpse of the deep and intense experience that Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden will offer. We look forward to revealing more in the coming months!”

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden is an action RPG that tells the story of two ghost hunters and lovers who are faced with various consequences for their actions. The game will focus on art direction, strong characters, and a plot based in a fantasy world.

New Eden, 1695. Antea Duarte and Red mac Raith are lovers and Banishers, ghost-hunters who vowed to protect the living from the threat of lingering ghosts and specters. Following a disastrous last mission, Antea is fatally wounded, becoming one of the spirits she loathes. In the haunted wilds of North America, the couple desperately searches for a way to liberate Antea from her new plight.
