Blacktail bewitches PC and consoles this winter

Forge the legend of Baba Yaga in this upcoming action adventure from The Parasight.


The realm of dark fairy tales will be the player's domain, as they look to craft the myth of the legendary witch Baba Yaga. Blacktail will act as an origin story of sorts for the ancient folk figure and it's currently targeted to release in the next year.

Blacktail is a first-person action adventure game from the team at The Parasight, which centers around a 16-year-old Yaga, who is accused of witchcraft and expelled from her home. Her past is haunting her, literally, as demonic creatures roam the world around her. Players must put these hideous spirits down with Yaga's trust bow, as well as other various abilities. On top of the archery-based combat, players must forge their path and ultimately decide what Baba Yaga becomes.

Look for some exciting side content to help shape Yaga's story further. Let's see what The Parasight has to say about that element over on the Blacktail website:

Define your alliances and beliefs through story-driven side quests. Decide the fate of the land and its inhabitants: be vengeful and manipulative, or honest and compassionate. Blacktail's morality system will significantly impact your gameplay experience. Watch your skillset change as you make story-defining choices that shift your morality. Collect lost recipes from the ancient Grimoire, brew elixirs in the Cauldron to unlock skill upgrades and grow into a great power.

Blacktail will release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X this coming winter. We'll have our eye on this game, as well as everything else being announced throughout this E3 2021 period. Keep it on Shacknews for the latest news.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
