The upcoming Blair Witch video game from Bloober Team arrives at the end of the month and Gamescom 2019 has brought with it an all-new story trailer to set the mood ahead of its debut. Titled “Insanity,” this new video offers the most in-depth look at the game yet and it’s honestly looking equal parts fantastic and intense with just under two weeks to go until we can play it.

Although The Blair Witch Project is a blast from the past in itself, it looks like this team really put a lot of work into getting the mood just right for this modern revisit. Check out the new footage above and read on for more details on the game, which is set to hit stores on August 30th.

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.
