The game will have a new system called Nemesis System, which will allow players to remember the interaction they have with other characters and based on these they will react throughout the game. The character of Talion can be customized and leveling up his abilities is optional.

The game will be released on 7 October, 2014 for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

This first-person fiction horror title, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, has gotten a new video titled "Welcome to Red Creek Valley."

The two-minute video shows the environment that the game is set in - forests, lakes and suddenly moves to more horrific part of the game where we see a seemingly injured person crawling on the road only to be battered dead with a tool.

"This is the first trailer for the game, with the focus on the mood of the story the players can experience, and the visuals one can expect from the game. The trailer is a real-time in-game capture (PC), just with the cameras set to tell a certain story," said a post on developer's website.

The game has been developed by Poland based-The Astronauts, which lets players control the character of Paul Prospero, an occult detective who tries to solve the case of a missing boy named Ethan Carter. The environments in the game are derived from photographs. This is done through a technique called 'photogrammetry.' The game is expected to be released in 2014.
