Developer Bloober Team and Lionsgate today announced Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition, a new version of the Blair Witch story built specifically for virtual reality. The new VR title is set to release for the Oculus Quest platform on October 29th -- right before Halloween -- for $29.99. It is planned to release on additional VR platforms in the coming months, but no specific dates have been announced. But perhaps best of all? The new VR version will let you pet the dog, Bullet.
"The Blair Witch story has been rebuilt for the Oculus Quest platform to offer a uniquely immersive and horrifying VR experience," the press release announcing Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition reads in part. "With environments redesigned for more interactivity and accommodate new creature encounters. In addition, there is a new control system and mechanics for your canine companion, Bullet – give him a treat right out of your hand, pet him at any time, and even play fetch! Players can enjoy a 360 immersive experience in the Black Hills Forest."
