Re-create the myth of the Baba Yaga in this dark fantasy epic in Blacktail, by developer The Parasight. 

Dive deep into Slavic folklore and witchcraft as you play as Yaga, a 16-year-old girl accused of witchcraft. Armed only with a bow at your side, you must face Yaga's own living memories, now manifesting as dark spirits, in this twisted forest that slowly unravels the world around you. Yaga must hunt these spirits down, but will it change her for the better?

This unique blend of first-person combat and action-RPG elements allows you to choose a playstyle that suits you. Craft recipes and elixirs to make yourself powerful, unlock spells and hexes to cause havoc in the woods or use your trusty bow to hunt down creatures and bosses alike. Your choices, enhanced by an in-game morality system, will determine Yaga's fate.

Blacktail will be available for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 5.
