Blacktail revealed as a haunting folk tale brought to life

Posted on June 12, 2021

Something wicked this way comes! Blacktail has been revealed and it’s looking like a dark tale of morality and the surreal. You play as Yaga, a 16-year-old girl who’s accused of witchcraft and gets exiled from all she knows, but there’s more to her past than even she knows. Check the trailer out below if you don’t believe me.

“Become the witch of the woods in BLACKTAIL. Slavic myth comes to life in this first-person open-world action-adventure. Discover Yaga’s story and guide her along the path to become a fearsome guardian of the forest or the dark legend that haunts children’s nightmares.”

The game’s an intense archery-witchcraft blended first-person fantasy game that looks like it’s aiming to hit that archer craving in all of us. Yaga’s bow and gauntlet will defeat any threats during your journey. Along the way, you’ll be collecting hidden Slavic treasures when your not crafting arrows or potions. There’s even wild game to hunt and herbs to harvest!

It looks impressive! Blacktail’s a fairytale gone awry. It’s based on a classic Slavic folk story of the Baba Yaga. The game will give players the choice to either become a faithful guardian of the woods or a dreaded force of evil in the forest.

Blacktail is coming soon to PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
