The Blair Witch returns this fall in a brand new online game. Lionsgate shocked horror followers on Sunday after they previewed the forthcoming title throughout Xbox’s E3 Briefing.
Developed by Bloober Crew (Layer of Concern), the first-person psychological horror sport places players in mountain climbing boots as they make their method into the Burkittsville woods.
”We’re so thrilled, and truthfully slightly scared, to convey all gamers, particularly followers of Blair Witch, again into the haunted woods,” stated Bloober CEO Piotr Babieno. “It’s genuinely an honor to be engaged on such a hair-raising, paradigmatic expertise, which outlined so lots of our lives!”
Right here’s the total synopsis:
It’s 1996. A younger boy disappears within the Black Hills Forest close to Burkittsville, Maryland. As Ellis, a former police officer with a troubled previous, you be part of the search. What begins as an unusual investigation quickly turns into an infinite nightmare as you confront your fears and the Blair Witch, a mysterious power that haunts the woods…
The sport drops on August 30th through Xbox One and PC. To drum up hype, they’ve unleashed a reveal trailer that clearly captures the sensation of the 1999 unique.
The Blair Witch Challenge modified the horror style 20 years in the past by raking in almost $250 million worldwide off a $60,000 finances. Two sequels adopted in its wake — 2000’s Ebook of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 and 2016’s Blair Witch — each of which have been unsuccessful.
Imagine it or not, this isn’t the primary Blair Witch sport. In 2000, Gathering of Builders launched a trilogy of video games based mostly on the movie that have been set inside their profitable Nocturne collection. They have been truly fairly scary and deserve a re-evaluation.
Alas, we’ll see how this fares come August.
