While Microsoft made numerous announcements at the E3 2019 press conference, Blair Witch is definitely something you shouldn’t miss.

If The Blair Witch Project is a movie that haunted you at some point of your life (maybe even until now) or you’re one of the many people wowed by Layers of Fear, then keep your eyes open for Blair Witch. This video game was based on the film, but has an original story of its own and to top it all off, it was developed by the creators of Layers of Fear, the Bloober Team. It will be out on August 30 for PC and Xbox One. You can pre-order the game now via GOG for $29.99.

“We are so thrilled, and honestly a little scared, to bring all players, especially fans of Blair Witch, back into the haunted woods," CEO of Bloober Team, Piotr Babieno, said in a press release. "It is genuinely an honor to be working on such a hair-raising, paradigmatic experience, which defined so many of our lives!”

Daniel Engelhardt, Senior Vice President of Lionsgate Interactive Ventures & Games hyped us up even more when he said, “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. They’ve taken the evil hiding in the Black Hills Forest to a whole new level. Players should enter at their own risk.”

The story of the game is set in the year 1996. A 9-year-old boy was reported missing and the police are conducting a widespread search for him in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland. You will play the role of a former police officer with a troubled past named Ellis. Together with your dog Bullet, you enter the Black Hills Forest to search for the boy. What started out as a regular search will take a turn for the worst and become an inescapable nightmare. You must face your darkest fears and, of course, the Blair Witch, the evil that dwells deep within the forest.

Are you ready to experience going into the Black Hills Forest yourself? Stay tuned for more updates on Blair Witch.
