Hunt A Killer and Lionsgate have teamed up for a new board game based on the popular Blair Witch films. The board game maker is teaming up for the first time with an entertainment company.
Hunt A Killer and Lionsgate had this to say about the partnership.
We are thrilled to partner with Hunt A Killer to continue expanding the world of Blair Witch into games. Their creative approach and mechanics are a natural fit for a franchise defined by unique storytelling, and represents a special way for us to build upon the narrative of the video game we launched last year.Daniel Engelhardt, SVP of Lionsgate Interactive Ventures & Games
We are excited to share this new season with our Members and the fans of the Blair Witch films. Lionsgate is a great partner for us, and the hair-raising story we have created together is sure to provide the perfect immersive experience for a thrilling game night with friends or family.Ryan Hogan, CEO and Co-Founder of Hunt A Killer
This isn’t your normal board game however. You’re going to get six different episodic games that all add together for the full experience. So you’re getting less of a board game, and more of a full scale experience. You can pre-order the game now, and the first episode comes out October 1st. Just in time for Halloween. For more information you can check out their website here.
