Xbox One is a line of eighth generation home video game consoles developed by Microsoft. Announced in May 2013, it is the successor to Xbox 360 and the third console in the Xbox family. It was first released in North America, parts of Europe, Australia, and Brazil in November 2013, and in Japan, China, and other European countries in September 2014. It is the first Xbox game console to be released in China, specifically in the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone. Microsoft marketed the device as an “all-in-one entertainment system". The Xbox One line mainly competes against consoles such as Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Nintendo’s Wii U and Switch.
When I first saw the trailer for this game back in 2015 (I think on an E3 trailer reel), I was disappointed at first that it wasn't to be released on Xbox, but still somewhat interested by the concept and the general feel of the game. When it was later announced for Xbox I couldn't wait to play it, having not looked at any reviews since that initial glimpse. A while after it's release I was going through some of my backlog which had contained a handful of walking simulators. The preachy narrative of those really put me off playing any other walking simulators, so when it came to finally starting Firewatch after my "No new games in 2016" stint, the initial dialogue caused me to bail on it. I put the game down and didn't look at it again until near the end of 2017.
