Gamers have got their first look at the official gameplay trailer for the upcoming 'Blair Witch', a first-person psychological horror game, coming to Xbox One and PC on August 30th.

The game is based on the cult 1999 found footage horror film, which followed three student filmmakers as they made a documentary about a local legend known as the Blair Witch - a project that lead to their mysterious disappearance. 

The original movie terrified cinema goers in the 90s and this new, more immersive take on the movie could be giving a new generation nightmares and perhaps even take the crown as the most terrifying game of all time.

'Blair Witch' is being developed by Bloober Team, the creators of 'Observer' and 'Layers of Fear', and was announced during Microsoft's press conference at the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles earlier this year.

Not much is known about the game, other than the fact that players will take on the role of Alex who's searching for a missing local boy. His only companion is his dog, Bullet. They venture into the Black Hills forest near Burkittsville, Maryland - the woodlands where the original movie was set, but they are unprepared for what's in store for them in the cursed forest.

Based on the "cinematic lore of Blair Witch," the game will study players' reactions to danger and stress to make the game even scarier as you play.

A trailer released during the E3 event gave gamers their first glimpse of the 'Blair Witch'. The teaser shows a man and his dog, Bullet, searching for a missing local boy.

Although little is known about the game's plot, some eagle-eyed gamers have already come up with some fan theories. As the game is set in 1996, two years after the events of the original movie, some think that the strange man seen standing in the corner of a derelict hut in the trailer could be Mike from the original film.
