The fantastic Firewatch was one of a batch of games added to Xbox Game Pass in late 2021, and while it might be a few years old now, various people (including Xbox's Sarah Bond) are pointing out just how great it still is.
Bond, who serves as Corporate Vice President at Xbox, took to social media yesterday to enthuse that Firewatch is "an emotional journey that will make you appreciate all aspects of life."
If you haven't come across it yet, the game is a single-player first-person mystery in which your job is to keep the wilderness safe, while also keeping in constant contact with your supervisor, Delilah. Safe to say the story isn't quite that simple, and the "edge-of-your-seat mystery" unravels as you progress.
The game scored an impressive 85 rating on Metacritic for Xbox in 2016, and while it's unfortunately never received a resolution or FPS boost for modern consoles, it's still an emotional journey that's definitely worth taking in 2022.
"Firewatch is a single-player first-person mystery set in the Wyoming wilderness, where your only emotional lifeline is the person on the other end of a handheld radio."
