TVo EC Screen Shot 02

If you thought that continuously walking down P.T.'s single hallway was a treat, you'll likely be chuffed to bits at upcoming PlayStation 4 murder mystery The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. As this recently released gameplay clip demonstrates, the title features multiple hallways, and will even let you explore the outside world. What will they think of next?

In all seriousness, the video shows off the solve-'em-up's distinctive investigative mechanics, which conveniently curb the need to comb every corner of the map for a single key. Instead, you'll be treated to bizarre hallucinations showing you the way to the next point of interest. As far as the game's story is concerned, it appears to be a tantalising mix between the classic TV show Twin Peaks and recent investigative flub Murdered: Soul Suspect.

Hopefully it'll be more like the fantastic former, and less like the lacklustre latter. What do you make of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter? Do you like it's relatively low-key gameplay, or do you prefer non-stop action? Look for clues in the comments section below.
