Blair Witch Coming to PS4 on December 3rd


Bloober Team and Lionsgate Announce Blair Witch For PlayStation 4

Today, Bloober Team, the creative minds behind the critically acclaimed Layers of Fear games, in partnership with global content leader Lionsgate, call you back to the woods with the upcoming release of Blair Witch on the PlayStation 4. Earlier this fall, this psychologically frightening return to the Black Hills Forest, known to host the iconic Blair Witch horror, reminded us of the gut-wrenching fear felt with the film series and can now be downloaded digitally via the PlayStation™Store for $29.90 USD starting on December 3, 2019.

The updated Blair Witch, which will first be available for digital download and later via physical retail versions, will include gameplay and technical enhancements. Additionally, players will now be able to customize their canine companion in various ways to make Bullet their personal “good boy” with the addition of the appropriately named “Good Boy Pack”; which will include new dog skins; new in-game cellphone games, wallpapers, and content; and new animations for Bullet - making him even more realistic. The “Good Boy Pack” will also be available on PC via Steam and the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X via the Xbox Games Store and Xbox Game Pass.

Blair Witch offers fans, and players alike, their own descent into madness through an original story inspired by Lionsgate’s iconic Blair Witch. Set in 1996, a young boy disappears in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland. Players experience the horror as Ellis, a former police officer with a troubled past, accompanied by his trustful canine companion, Bullet. Their story starts as they join the search for the missing boy, but players shortly discover the horrors that await as the woods twist and turn into an endless nightmare. Ellis will have to confront his fears, and his past, along with the mysterious force that haunts the woods.

The first-person experience studies players’ reactions to the many dangers, stresses and tolls that the original story delivers, and results in one of various potential playthroughs. In addition to the horrifying psychological experience, there is a balanced display of the beautiful environments showcased in full in-game 4K; tricking adventurers to feel a sense of relief before venturing even deeper into the home of the iconic Blair Witch. Blair Witch is enhanced for 4K gameplay on Xbox One X and supported PCs via Steam, and will also be supported via PS4 Pro upon its digital release.

To celebrate the upcoming PS4 release of Blair Witch, Bloober Team and Lionsgate Games released a brand-new trailer and set of visual assets which can be viewed or downloaded via the press kit link above.

Blair Witch is still a thing? Didn't this have its 15 minutes like 10,000 minutes ago?

I'm a sucker for anything Blair Witch related, when the original film came out I was super into it and wanted to go to the Maryland woods to find the witch. Until I found out it wasn't real. But I still have fun memories from that event which have kept me a fan of the series, even when the sequels weren't that great.

Anyways as you can see from the above statement, I'll state if a Blair Witch thing isn't good, and this game was awesome. I think it is only about 8 or so hours, but it was a really cool game; good enough to be considered a worthy sequel (prequel). However, the Xbox One X version was pretty crappy in regards to graphics and controls, compared to the PC version. On PC it great. So hopefully this PS4 version has been improved since the initial Xbox release.

Every time this game makes it's way to the news page I wonder who's cousin is working on it.
This is a hard sell as actual current gaming news, and if the PS4 announcement IS actual news.. damn PS4 people..that's rough.
