Seems like the right length for a horror game.
Bloober Team will be back soon with another horror title, and this one is promising to be a very intriguing one. Blair Witch, with the promise of its creepy atmosphere, time loops, and the inherent draw of the property it’s based on, can be a special game if all goes well, and many are looking forward to get their hands on it.
But how long is it going to be? That’s a question we ask about pretty much every game, and while “the more, the better” is usually a good mantra to follow for most games, for horror titles, that’s not always true. Thankfully, it looks like Blair Witch is landing in a pretty sweet spot as far as length is concerned.
Speaking with Gamewatcher, Maciej Glomb of Bloober Team says the game is going to be between five and six hours long. As far as replayability is concerned, in addition to the game having multiple endings, Glomb says replaying the entire game the second time also makes for a different experience.
“I think it might be cool to play it once more to just you know, with this knowledge of how the game ends from the beginning. It makes the experience completely different,” he said.
Blair Witch is out on August 30th for the Xbox One and PC.
