Are you ready to go into the woods?
Are you ready to go into the woods? Layers of Fear

Prepare to face your fears as Blair Witch brings you back to the woods that started it all. Developed by Layers of Fear games, the game is now available for the PC through Steam. Blair Witch is also available on the Xbox One.

Inspired by none other than the Blair Witch movie franchise, both fans and players are offered the chance to experience their own descent into madness. The game is set in 1996, where a young boy has disappeared in the Black Hills Forest located near Burkittsville, Maryland. You get to play as Ellis, a former police officer that comes with his own baggage. You are joined by none other than Bullet, your trusty canine companion. The game starts simple enough as Ellis and Bullet join the search for the missing boy. However, players quickly discover that the woods have horrors inside that twist and turn into what appears to be an endless nightmare. Aside from confronting the mysterious force haunting the woods, Ellis needs to face his past and fears.

This first-person game looks into how players react to the different dangers, tolls, and stresses offered by the original story in order to reach one of the different possible endings. In addition to the psychological horror experience, the game offers an excellent display of the beautiful environment in glorious 4K. Be warned though as this gives players a sense of relief and tricks them into going even deeper into the woods.
