Blair Witch Scares Me Even Today

Originally revealed at E3 this year, the shocking announcement that a game set within the Blair Witch universe was in development. I was a fan of the original even though I ended up not sleeping for a week. The sequel, not so much – it just didn’t resonate with me.

Today, the team behind Layers of Fear, Bloober Team, revealed the first gameplay trailer and judging by the looks of it, exploring the Black Hills Forest is going to be one creepy experience. Oh, and it looks like you can pet the dog named Bullet.

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.

Blair Witch arrives August 30 on Xbox One and PC.
