Based on the Slavic folktale of the Baba Yaga, Blacktail casts players as a young girl who has been exiled from her medieval Slavic village and then is subsequently plagued by memories of the past and insidious evil spirits that want to corrupt her.
A first-person action adventure with archery elements and non-linear storytelling, Blacktail is set to release on PS5 this winter. You can catch the synopsis for Blacktail below.
You play as Yaga, a 16-year-old girl accused of witchcraft and expelled from an early medieval Slavic settlement. When living memories of her past return as foul, walking spirits, Yaga is faced with no other option than to hunt them down in hopes of unravelling her own mystery.
Bringing a one-of-a-kind blend of intense archery combat, magic and dark storytelling set in a vibrant fairy tale world, the game takes you on the defining journey of an ambiguous folk figure. Will you be a good witch and protect the forest? Or will you be the evil that haunts children’s nightmares? Only you can decide.
