It’s not often you’re encouraged to set the world on fire, but needs must in 2D stealth platformer Wildfire, which wants you to do that and more with your elemental powers. That’s the key to avoid the forces of evil and free your fellow villagers in Wildfire on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Developed by Sneaky Bastards and published by Humble Games – who recently helped launch Carto – Wildfire throws you into a world where magic is practically non-existent nowadays. Due to possessing elemental powers, the villains of this realm fear you and brand you as a witch. In order to steer clear of their pursuits and rescue captured villagers, these magic powers must be used to start fires, freeze water, and even move earth. That’s the only way you’ll outsmart the armies of the Arch Duchess as they hunt you down through lush forests, deep caverns, and across the icy mountaintops.
- Manipulate Your Environment – Use fireballs to set the world ablaze, freeze water to cross impassable lakes or trap your enemies in ice, and move earth itself to grow grass to hide in or vines to climb.
- Master the Elements – Grow the connection to the elements to learn new abilities, but beware; fire will spread and consume everything in its path
- Outsmart Your Enemies – Use the environment as an advantage to evade and engage the Arch Duchess’ forces and intelligent enemies.
- Burn the World…With a Friend – Play solo or with a friend through local co-op, wielding elemental powers in tandem, creating new ways through Wildfire’s dense, systemic environment.
If you’ve got a burning desire to check out Wildfire, it’s available on all digital stores belonging to the aforementioned platforms, but the Xbox Store is our preferred place to grab it for the sum of £12.49 – discounted to £11.24 for one week post-launch.
