Blair Witch: It`s about to get horrible
Today sees the release of two horror titles! In addition to Bandai`s Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, today also sees the release of Bloober`s Team Blair Witch, which is launching today on Xbox One and PC.
Shown off at E3, it was revealed that Blair Witch would follow close to the franchise we know, and much to the delight of Xbox Game Pass members, it would be part of Game Pass.
Today, it goes live at 5pm UK time.
“Blair Witch offers fans, and players alike, their own descent into madness through an original story inspired by Lionsgate’s iconic Blair Witch franchise. Set in 1996, a young boy disappears in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland. Players experience the horror as Ellis, a former police officer with a troubled past, accompanied by his trustful canine companion, Bullet. Their story starts as they join the search for the missing boy, but players shortly discover the horrors that await as the woods twist and turn into an endless nightmare. Ellis will have to confront his fears, and his past, along with the mysterious force that haunts the woods.
The first-person experience will study players’ reactions to the many dangers, stresses and tolls that the original story delivers to result in one of various potential playthroughs. In addition to the horrifying psychological experience, there is a balanced display of the beautiful environments, showcased in full in-game 4K; tricking adventurers to feel a sense of relief before venturing even deeper into the home of the iconic Blair Witch. Blair Witch is Xbox One X enhanced for 4K gameplay, along with 4K playability on PC via Steam.”
Blair Witch is out at 5pm UK time today, and if you have Xbox Game Pass, be sure to get it downloaded.
