The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is coming to Xbox One with 4K support and new mode
The Astronauts' narrative adventure The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is heading to Xbox One with support for Xbox One X. It'll feature 4K support to bolster the game in the graphical department for Xbox One X players, but it'll also include a new mode to play through.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter follows a paranormal investigator who receives a letter from a 12-year-old boy named Ethan Carter, whose disappearance he ends up investigating, which spirals into something even darker and more dangerous than he could ever have imagined.
The new version of the game, which was originally released in 2014, will include Free Roam mode, which has been requested by fans looking for ways to explore further than what the game allows. This way you can take in all the sights of the world of Red Creek Valley without having to worry about progressing in the game or what the story will bring next. This way the previous limits imposed on players are removed to make things easier to experience.
The game is up for preorder right now on Xbox One, but it doesn't launch fully until Jan. 19 with full 4K support. You can go ahead and play the game right now if you're curious, however, as it's available on both PC and PlayStation 4 right now.
