Witchfire gets new trailer showing off Nvidia DLSS 3 tech


Publisher and developer The Astronauts have shared a new gameplay trailer for Witchfire.

The new gameplay trailer shows off the game running at ultra high settings, rocking a solid framerate, all thanks to Nvidia DLSS 3 technology.

Co-founder and creative director Adrian Chmielarz notes “if it’s an action game, you realize that the framerate is king,” and users typically compromise on visuals to keep stable FPS.

This performance compromise is no longer an issue with DLSS 3, which lets them achieve “the seemingly impossible, high framerate without compromising the visuals.”

Here’s the new gameplay trailer:

Here’s a rundown on the game:


Armed with strange weapons and forbidden pagan magic, hunt a powerful witch holding the key to your salvation. Witchfire is a dark fantasy roguelite shooter from the creators of Painkiller, Bulletstorm, and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.


  • Dark Fantasy With Guns! – Witchfire is a first-person shooter from the creative leads behind Painkiller and Bulletstorm. A roguelite for people who hate roguelites, the game offers a challenging but satisfying gameplay experience, and with multiple roads to victory.
  • At War With Witches – Desperate for a chance to triumph in the deadly war against witches, the Church calls on forbidden pagan magic to turn willing sinners into immortal witch hunters called preyers. Armed with powerful spells and fearsome firearms conjured by the best Vatican sorcerers, your mission is to find the infamous witch of the Black Sea, destroy the phantom army that protects her, and retrieve a mysterious artifact that can finally turn the tide of war.
  • Immersive Graphics in a Grimdark World – Like The Astronauts’ previous title (The Vanishing of Ethan Carter), Witchfire uses photogrammetry technology to achieve stunning visuals and a grim, immersive dark fantasy world.

Witchfire is set to launch for PC (on the Epic Games Store) in early 2023.
