Blair Witch Game This Year

Bloober Team announces Blair Witch, a new video game coming to Windows and Xbox One on August 30th. This marks just over 20 years after the sensation of "found footage" horror classic The Blair Witch Project, or three years after the less successful third installment in the series. By our count this will be the fourth PC game based on the series, as Gathering of Developers released a trilogy of Blair Witch games around the turn of the millennium. A NSFW reveal trailer shows off what its description calls "a first-person, story-driven psychological horror game based on the cinematic lore of Blair Witch." Here's the announcement:

Grab your camcorder and run like hell! Today the Bloober Team, in partnership with global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), revealed Blair Witch, live from The Xbox E3 Briefing. From the masters of fright, this brand-new first-person psychological horror game will return players to the dreadful woods in an original story inspired by the iconic Blair Witch. Currently in development for the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and PC, Blair Witch is set to launch worldwide on August 30, 2019.

“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!” said Piotr Babieno, CEO at Bloober Team.

“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,” said Daniel Engelhardt, Senior Vice President of Lionsgate Interactive Ventures & Games. “They’ve taken the evil hiding in the Black Hills Forest to a whole new level. Players should enter at their own risk.”

It’s 1996. 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.

From the creative minds behind the critically acclaimed Layers of Fear, experience first-hand the toll that fear can take on the mind in an original story. Blair Witch is a first-person psychological horror game that studies your reactions to danger and stress. Your darkest fears will awaken.

Set to release digitally on Xbox One and PC on August 30, 2019 for an MSRP of $29.99, Blair Witch can be pre-ordered now and will be also available through Xbox Game Pass upon release. The game is yet to be rated by the ESRB.
