A camera floats through an old yard, diving into an ancient crypt. A detective speaks of disturbing secrets and a man named Carter… “He shouldn’t have.”
The crypt lights up in flame, and we see a man lying on a slab, a blade protruding from his chest. At the Sony press conference this was our ghastly hello to The Vanishing off Ethan Carter.
The game appears to be ghost detective story, as the trailer quickly morphs into the spirit realm and features two ghosts attempting to decipher clues, thereby garnering comparisons to the already released Murdered: Soul Suspect.
We’re also a treated to a very large tentacle, hinting at the horrors that dwell deep below Red Creek Valley while tantalizing those gamers who are into such things.
Gameplay seems to be a combination of first and third person perspective as the game switches to both styles within the trailer.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter looks to be an independent title, based on the graphics and the fact that it was shown during Sony’s half-hour indie showcase. No word on a release date was given, but The Vanishing of Ethan Carter will make its debut on the PS4.
