The Vanishing of Ethan Carter gets free roam on Xbox One

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter will head to Xbox One with a special free roam mode not available on Windows PC or PS4.

“We’ve done the Free Roam and 4K for Xbox One simply because we wanted to inject an extra excitement into a game long available on other platforms,” The Astronauts’ Adrian Chmielarz told DualShockers.

The new mode is exclusive to Xbox One for a timed period, Chmielarz also confirmed. He added that it was the easiest to implement as well, as this version of the game has been developed in the latest version of Unreal Engine 4.

“Adding the Free Roam to the PS4 version is not just the full rebuild, fresh integration with the latest PS4 SDK, and certification, but also some serious testing and possible code updates,” he said.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is already available on Windows PC and PS4. It heads to Xbox One on 19 January.
