Campo Santo has announced that its first-person mystery set in the woods of Wyoming, Firewatch, will be coming to Xbox One on September 21st.

“Firewatch is a first person mystery set in the woods of Wyoming. You play as a man named Henry and you?ve escaped your messy life for some peaceful time alone in the woods,” Campo Santo’s Sean Vanaman explains. “Except you?re not alone: you?re in constant contact with a woman named Delilah who works in a nearby tower and your time quickly stops being peaceful.”

The Xbox One release features the Firewatch Audio Tour, a making-of that turns the game into one part Director?s Commentary and one part Game Dev Workshop.

“You?ll get stories from the development, hear from both Rich Sommer (Mad Men) and Cissy Jones (The Walking Dead), and get a real-time look at how we built this thing with such a small team,” Vanaman explains. “Also furthermore (yes, more furthermore!) Xbox One owners are getting a free-roam mode that lets you explore the entire Shoshone Wilderness of the game with dynamic time of day and a few hidden secrets.”
