ORIGINAL STORY (July 30, 2019): After its announcement at Microsoft’s E3 2019 panel, developers Bloober Team along with Lionsgate Games have revealed a gameplay trailer for Blair Witch. The one-and-a-half-minute long visual is a compressed first look at the upcoming first-person psychological horror game, exhibiting a number of important details to help the player through their journey into Black Hills Forrest.
Aside from the usual item pick-up, it seems like the player will be able to utilize an old mobile phone. Phone service dies at one point in the trailer, but it might have additional use aside from calls. Interaction with the main character’s dog, Bullet, is also featured in the trailer; Bullet will respond to five different commands, including “Seek” and digging in certain areas of the woods. The demonic entity also makes a very quick appearance, adding to the already creepy vibe of the whole game.
