Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden highlights The Weight of Consequences in a new extended trailer
Dontnod and Focus Entertainment have released a new video for Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden that takes a deep dive on the consequences that can unfold based on the choices a player makes. In this new 8-minute video, the voice actors of dual protagonists Antea and Red, Amaka Okafor and Russ Bain respectively, walk through how these choices and consequences can manifest.
Stéphane Beauverger, Head of Narration for Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden, sets the stage of an early case taht involves a woman haunted by her late husband. Another man has decided to become a fake husband impostor for the sake of keeping the small town's community stable after murdering the real husband due to his abusive behavior towards his wife.
Needless to say, the ghost of the late husband cannot rest easy and refuses to pass on. After players gather clues to piece the case together, they will be given the choice of whether they want to blame the two living people or choose to ascend or banish the late husband's ghost.
This choice is further muddied by the fact that Red wants to resurrect his dead wife, Antea. In order to do so, he'll have to sacrifice many souls to initiate it. It's up to players to decide how they want to resolve issues as they work towards one of the five endings in Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden.
Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden is launching on February 13, 2024 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Steam).

Focus Entertainment and DON'T NOD are delighted to feature the voices of the two lead characters of Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden - ghost hunters Red Mac Raith and Antea Duarte - in a brand-new video titled "The Weight of Consequences." You’ll dive deep into the conflicted motivations driving each of these people, as well as the impossible choices that await as you decide the fate of their journey.
Explore the game through the eyes of the duo’s English voice actors: Russ Bain (Shetland) and Amaka Okafor (known for her leading role in the critically acclaimed series Bodies). They’re accompanied by Head of Narration Stéphane Beauverger. You’ll discover the importance of choices and their impact on the mystical world of Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden. Immerse yourself in the lives of the people of New Eden to uncover their terrible secrets and exorcise a world overrun by supernatural forces.
After Antea's death and her return as a ghost, the couple faces an impossible moral dilemma. With Antea's spirit now stuck between the worlds of the living and the dead, the duo must make a heart-wrenching choice: release her soul and let her go for good…or betray their Banisher vows by sacrificing the living to bring her back to life. Use your skills to combine Antea's spiritual powers with Red's formidable arsenal and break the link between tormented souls and the living they haunt.
Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden will release on Feb. 13, 2024, on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The game is available for pre-order now.
