Everything is more frightening in VR.
Blair Witch VR

Bloober Team and Lionsgate just announced a VR version of their recent-ish Blair Witch horror game. On October 29, you will be able to experience Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition, a VR offering of the team's latest horror title. It will be available for purchase for just $29.99 from the Oculus Store. I say the game is "recent-ish" because while it may be Bloober Team's latest release, it did still come out about a year ago in non-VR form.

Bloober says that this release has been "built specifically for VR." Just as before, Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition is a psychological horror game set in the same cinematic lore of the Blair Witch franchise.

Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition is said to be coming to "additional VR platforms in the coming months." I assume then that it won't be called "Oculus Quest Edition" if it's coming to other platforms later.
