If you played The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, you’d be familiar with a certain railway bridge in the game. Turns out, that bridge was photoscanned from a real location in Poland… and, turns out, a few days ago, a headless corpse was found floating underneath it.
The news comes directly from game developer The Astronauts, who posted the grisly details to Twitter.
