That’s right, a brand new terrifying game that’s inspired by the movie franchise The Blair Witch will drop later in the year. After absolutely silence on all fronts, Microsoft pulled this one out of their hat, showcasing a cinematic trailer that’s not only creepy, but absolutely chilling from beginning to end. You can check it out below.

This new Blair Witch game comes from none other than the Layers of Fear developer Bloober Team, so much like the trailer where a man wanders a dark, eerie forest with his dog, Bullet, you can probably expect a genuinely scary experience. So when does this new game drop? According to the brand new trailer it will be released for the PC and Xbox One on August 30th of this year! Oh, and of course it will be available on the same day to play on the Xbox Game Pass.

And if you’re wondering what to expect from the game, here’s the official description from the cinematic trailer, “Blair Witch is a first-person, story-driven psychological horror game based on the cinematic lore of Blair Witch. It’s 1996. A young boy disappears in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland. As Ellis, a former police officer with a troubled past, you join the search. What starts as an ordinary investigation soon turns into an endless nightmare as you confront your fears and the Blair Witch, a mysterious force that haunts the woods…”
