A horror filled trip back in time.

Bloober Team, the studio that created some horror classics like Layers of Fear and Observer, announced a new game at this E3. It's called Blair Witch and, as you probably assumed from the title, it is a first-person psychological horror game set in the Blair Witch universe. It's a completely original story that is looking to be released on August 30, 2019 for the Xbox One and PC.

The game will be released at a $29.99 (USD) pricepoint. It will also be available through the Xbox Game Pass at release. It is said to be a game that "studies your reactions to danger and stress."

“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.
