Bloober Team’s upcoming Blair Witch video game has been receiving plenty of buzz lately, with its impending release just a short month away. Today, the studio released its official gameplay trailer for the title, showing off more of what these haunted woods have to offer, not to mention giving us a taste of how the game will actually play when we can get our hands on it.
Players will be exploring the woods and various buildings from the first-person perspective, which really dials the creepiness factor up to 11. There are no shortage of scares, so give the new footage a watch above and read on for more details on the game.
Blair Witch is being developed by independent studio Bloober Team, which has previously delved into horror with its Layers of Fear games.
The game is set in 1996, when a young boy disappears in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland. Ellis, a former police officer with a troubled past, joins the search and what starts as an ordinary investigation soon turns into an endless nightmare as he must confront his fears and the Blair Witch, a mysterious force that haunts the woods…
Blair Witch will be arriving on Xbox One and PC on August 30th, 2019. As usual, stick with us here on Dead Entertainment for all the latest in horror gaming and coverage you can count on.
