The story’s publication marks the official conclusion of Witchfire Halloween Week— over the past week, the studio shared six Witchfire-inspired horror posters from Polish artists: Grzegorz Przybyś, Mat Heldwein, Karol Duma, Paweł Niziołek, Aleksandra Skiba, and Syzmon Urban. The Preyer includes stylish illustrations from Bernard Kowalczuk that bring the dark tale to life. Fans who want to learn more about Witchfire lore, or who simply want a good spooky story for Halloween season, can read The Preyer on The Astronauts website.
Earlier this month The Astronauts revealed that Witchfire is now on track for release in early 2023, thanks to a shift from arena-style fighting to open-levels (not to be confused with fully open-world gameplay).
