Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden is Don't Nod's action-RPG

The Life is Strange developer is diving into the action genre with its next game.


Don’t Nod is known for narrative-driven experiences like the Life is Strange series, but the developer is taking its talents in a new direction with its next release. Don’t Nod has announced Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden, an Action-RPG with a new gameplay trailer. The game is set to launch in late 2023.

Don't Nod is primarily known for its narrative-driven games, which makes the move to the action genre all the more interesting. While we don't know how those elements will be implemented, we get a slight tease of gameplay in the announcement trailer, though it cuts off before the fighting begins. In a brief description, the developer reveals that we'll be controlling two characters, Red and Antea, as they solve mysteries and hunt ghosts.

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden was announced during The Game Awards. For more on the other games that were revealed tonight, pay a visit to our topic page dedicated to The Game Awards.
