Earlier in the week we reported the reveal of our first look at gameplay for the new game from developer Blooper Team and publisher Lionsgate Games. Today they have released a trailer for the forthcoming Blair Witch game that provides the first insight into the nature of its gameplay.
In the trailer (below), you can see Alex, the male protagonist, making a foray into the sort of creepy woods which will be familiar to anyone who saw the film. Alex is armed with a retro mobile phone (on the end of which is a woman called Jess), and he has a dog called Bullet which he can control (by, for example, instructing him to dig at specified points), along with a flashlight. Later on, combat comes into play.
The trailer also shows Alex riding a vehicle which looks like a quad-bike, and entering a ruined house in which the horror aspect for which the film was renowned is ramped up to satisfying effect. Lionsgate Games said the trailer shows: “A look at some of the gameplay elements of the first-person psychological horror game: exploration, commands, combat, environmental interaction, and of course a taste of how players will interact with Bullet.”
