Microsoft and Bloober Team have announced a new Blair Witch game that will be coming on both Xbox One and the PC. Although we don’t have enough information, this new Blair Witch game will be a horror title and you can find below its E3 2019 trailer, featuring in-engine footage from it.
Blair Witch is described as a first-person, story-driven psychological horror game based on the cinematic lore of Blair Witch that studies your reactions to danger and stress.
“A young boy disappears in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland. As Ellis, a former police officer with a troubled past, you join the search. What starts as an ordinary investigation soon turns into an endless nightmare as you confront your fears and the Blair Witch, a mysterious force that haunts the woods.”
Piotr Babieno, CEO at Bloober Team, said:
“We are so thrilled, and honestly a little scared, to bring all players, especially fans of Blair Witch, back into the haunted woods. It is genuinely an honor to be working on such a hair-raising, paradigmatic experience, which defined so many of our lives!”
Daniel Engelhardt, Senior Vice President of Lionsgate Interactive Ventures & Games, added:
“The team at Bloober is made up of amazing storytellers. We were excited to give them the opportunity to craft an original narrative set in the iconic woods of Blair Witch. They’ve taken the evil hiding in the Black Hills Forest to a whole new level. Players should enter at their own risk.”
Blair Witch releases on August 30th.
