The Astronauts Announce Release Date for The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

The Astronauts, an independent studio with talent from People Can Fly whose previous credits included Gears of War: Judgment, has announced that its new game called The Vanishing of Ethan Carter will be available on PC via both Steam and Good Old Games.

In the game, players try to uncover a mystery surrounding Red Creek Valley where they'll take on the role of a detective looking for clues after a "brutal murder."

"While it features a private detective and quite a few mental challenges, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is not an especially puzzle-ridden game," the studio says on its website. "Our focus is on atmosphere, mood, and the essential humanity of our characters."

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter will be available via the developer's website and through the digital shop fronts mentioned above on September 25th.
