Blair Witch (XBO, PC)


Definitely one of the bigger surprises of the year, Blair Witch manages to provide sufficient scares and a few neat gameplay twists while continuing to prove that nothing good can be found in the forest. Inspired by the film’s cinematic lore, you’ll play as former police officer Ellis searching for a missing boy – leading to a healthy dose of tension and fear.

Utilising the series’ signature camcorder for puzzles is also incredibly smart, forcing you to play around with recorded footage to alter your environment. Just maybe keep the lights on.
