The World Premiere trailer for Blair Witch, set after the disappearance of a child in 1996, was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the conference so far. The graphics look pretty astonishing, even if buffed up for the purposes of an E3 trailer and the setting looks immaculately terrifying.
Taking cues from the much loved film of the late 90’s, it does a brilliant job of bringing the first-person horror genre back to console, after games like Alan Wake. It’s certainly one of the more interesting entries we’ve had, and came a bit out of the blue for many of those assembled in the conference hall.
The Xbox conference is ticking along nicely, with further footage of Cyberpunk 2077 being shown off and a release date of 16th April 2020. The brutal combat takes it position at the fore, showcasing a variety of weapons and abilities in an extremely visceral 4 minutes. Plus Keanu Reeves, what else could you possibly want. And when I say that I don’t just mean in game, I MEAN ON THE BLOODY STAGE.
Keep it locked in to GameRVW as we continue our coverage of E3.
