The Witness, the acclaimed first-person puzzle game from designer Jonathan Blow, will be released on the Xbox One September 13 — several months after its debut on the PC and PlayStation 4.
IGN got the first word from Blow on the game's Xbox One release:
According to Blow, the Xbox One version of The Witness will not differ from its PC or PlayStation 4 versions. "There are some technical differences, but it's basically the same game," Blow told IGN, dismissing the idea of platform-exclusive content for The Witness. "I feel like that would kind of… mess up the game," he continued.
Ironically, Blow first achieved fame for designing Braid, an acclaimed indie game that debuted on the Xbox 360 in 2008 before being released for other platforms in 2009. However, Blow later stated that he had issues working with Microsoft on the release of Braid and decided to make The Witness available first for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
As far as the game itself, The Witness has a very simple premise: your player character finds himself on an island with no memory of who he is or how he got there. In order to find a way home he has to solve the many puzzles found on this beautiful but mysterious island.
