E3 2019 brought a glimpse of something terrifying… Blair Witch, the upcoming horror game from the makers of Observer and Layers of Fear. And while the trailer was enough to make us want to hide behind the sofa, we couldn’t help but notice that at least we’ll be getting an adorable canine companion to come along with us on our scary adventure.

In Blair Witch, you play as a police officer trying to track down a missing child in the Black Hills Forest. If you’ve seen the original Blair Witch, you’ll know that those woods are dark and full of spooks, but the plus side is that you’ll be accompanied by Bullet, and he’s going to help you get through your adventure in one piece.

Game Informer recently got a sneak peek at some new gameplay footage, and in amongst a whole host of spine-chilling reveals, we finally got to see our new canine friend in action…

1. You can pet the dog

This might just be the most important mechanic ever implemented in a video game, so it’s important to master it quickly. You can also give him belly rubs, or ask him to stay close by you when something scary happens.

2. He’s great at finding things

Bullet’s got a good nose, and that means he can track down clues and follow trails for you. Honestly, he’s so useful, we think he should be promoted to full detective right away.

3. You can teach him tricks

There are plenty of things a dog can do that a human can’t, like fit into tight spaces and dig holes to uncover concealed objects. Bullet can do all that and more, and there’ll be new tricks for him to learn over the course of the game.

4. He’ll be sad if you ignore him

Strokes and belly rubs are one thing, but you’ll need to give Bullet more attention than that if you want him to be your best friend. Pay attention when he’s trying to get you to do things, because out here, he’s pretty much the only one who’s got your best interests at heart.

5. He will probably save your life

Another reason for wanting Bullet to be your best friend is that he can be incredibly handy when the Blair Witch’s minions start to appear. Your main weapon is a dodgy flashlight, and those monsters move fast. Make use of Bullet’s superior senses, because he might be able to warn you of incoming danger in a pinch.

So there you have it – 5 reasons having an adorable dog is going to make your survival in Blair Witch a whole lot more plausible. Just please, please let him survive along with us…
