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, players will 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.
Almost 20 years after the original movie, The Bloober Team and Lionsgate have revealed Blair Witch. From the masters of fright, this first-person psychological horror game takes players back to the dreadful woods in an original story inspired by the iconic Blair Witch Project.
“We are so thrilled, and honestly a little scared, to bring all players, especially fans of Blair Witch, back into the haunted woods,” said Piotr Babieno, CEO at Bloober Team. “It is genuinely an honour to be working on such a hair-raising, paradigmatic experience, which defined so many of our lives!”
“The team at Bloober is made up of amazing storytellers,” said Daniel Engelhardt, Senior Vice President of Lionsgate Interactive Ventures & Games. “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.”
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 players’ reactions to danger and stress.
Set to release digitally on Xbox One and PC on 30 August 2019 for $29.99, Blair Witch can be pre-ordered now and will be also available through Xbox Game Pass upon release.
