Blacktail Shows Off New Gameplay Overview Video

Focus Entertainment and developer The Parasight have revealed a new gameplay overview video for their upcoming game Blacktail. We've been seeing teasers for the game for about a year now as the story puts you into the shoes of the legendary folktale witch Baba Yaga. This latest video will give you a better understanding of the first-person gameplay as you travel an enchanted forest setting, mastering and utilizing both your bow and magic spells as you decide whether to become good or evil through your choices. You'll also snatch up resources to craft potions and arrows, fight various enemies and bosses throughout the forest, and have a very bizarre adventure. You can enjoy the video down below before the game is released on December 15th, 2022.
