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 Black Hills Forest with the release of Blair Witch on the PlayStation 4.
Earlier this autumn, this story-driven psychological horror game based on the cinematic lore of Blair Witch scared PC and Xbox gamers to their core, and now this terrifying game can be downloaded digitally via the PlayStation Store for £24.99. The game is PEGI 16 for obvious witchy reasons.
Watch out for the Blair Witch in the Black Hills Forest
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 that the original story delivers to result in one of various potential playthroughs. In addition to the 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 support via PS4 Pro upon its digital release.
Players are now able to customise their canine companion in various ways to make Bullet their very own and 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” is also 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.
