6 Upcoming Horror Games That Look Absolutely Terrifying

Mikami is what some call the “father” of survival horror. This is because he’s one of the minds behind the Resident Evil and Dino Crisis series. He also had a hand in one of my favorite recent horror games, Shadows of the Damned. His next game, and potentially the last title he’ll direct, The Evil Within, is easily his darkest yet. We haven’t seen actual gameplay, but if it’s anything like its live-action trailer than I expect it will be a deeply disturbing game.

Judging by the batch of images — they’re more concept art and bullshots than actual screenshots — we can at least see what Mikami and his Tango Gameworks studio is aiming for. To me, it looks like everything Resident Evil fans have been asking for. The camera, combat and some of the enemies are reminiscent of Resident Evil 4, but the art style and story are significantly darker.

We won’t know for sure whether Mikami will go out with a bang or a whimper, but I have very high hopes for this — I even have a wish list for what I’d like to see from the game.

    i wish some of these games would come to consoles like Amnesia. i don’t play game on my computer. that may just change though because i am really curious about Outlast and Asylum. i hope you haven’t forgotten about that second one, adam. http://www.facethehorror.com/

      I agree – I don’t play games on the computer (if I did I would never get any work done). Consoles need to get more horror on them !!

  • DethHand

    I’ve been checking out news on these games and I have to say I’m excited. I’ve been waiting for a game to come along and really freak me out (like the very first Resident Evil game), and it seems like these new titles may deliver. Can’t wait!

  • Seal_Clubber

    Man – These look great. I am probably in the minority here but I really wish someone would make a “Cold Fear 2″. Way under rated …

    • Adam Dodd

      I agree 100% – I LOVED Cold Fear, even if it wasn’t the most original horror game, it was a ton of fun and genuinely scary at times. That scene where the creatures burst out of the whale carcass will haunt me forever.

  • ThunderDragoon

    I’m really excited for The Evil Within. I’ll end up playing every game on this list, though. :D

  • Milk

    New Amnesia New Amnesia woot woot

    • Adam Dodd

      I couldn’t have said it better myself!

    Outlast looks insane! ME wants this now!!!!!!

  • GothicGuido

    I’m most looking forward to The Evil Within (and insane if it ever comes out) The evil Within has the potential to ressurect the genre. I have nothing against adventure horror on the PC but its kind of the country music of survival horror. Its not impacting the rest of gaming but I wish they would put some of these games on Xbla/psn. They have all played pretty similar but with something like daylight I think that is about to change (: Either way its looking like the best year for survival horror in almost a decade.

    We were lucky enough to get an interview with the producer of Dreadout, and from what he mentioned, the final product is going to be some really, really pants-wetting scary stuff. Check it out here:

    Great ghost game for mobile! Creepy fun, wicked good audio. Do NOT play it alone in the dark…. http://ghostpatrolgame.com

    Ugg.. I really wish the Walking dead / Game of thrones would hurry up and stop being a thing….

    • Mitch

      The walking dead comics early on and the game were both very good. The show sucked from episode 1.

      • Khy

        I loved the first season of Walking Dead. The second was good but extremely slow, a lot of the episodes felt like filler. But in the end, it was a good season. Season 3 was OK, a few good juicy moments, but nothing that amazing. Haven’t bothered with season 4 and doubt I’ll bother with season 5. The show has lost it’s appeal for me. I don’t know exactly why.

        • JQ

          Probably because its an endlessness of zombies. They don’t know where they are going or what they r going to do. Basically waiting for a resolve.

    • Justin

      R u serious. Walking dead is Awesome

  • JcHc3in1

    For someone supposedly playing and rating M-rated games, the narrator sure sounds juvenile. “Amaze-balls?” Really???

  • Raluca Ivanovici

    “The developer is no stranger to the horror genre, and they’re next game, Daylight, looks to be taking a few pages out of more recent genre games.”

    THEY’RE NEXT GAME? Really?! Thought a writer would be aware on how to use proper grammar.

  • mewmew34

    Based on watching Krillin of TeamFourStar playing, Dreadout sucked massively.

  • paul middleton

    WHY ARENT WE GETTING THESE DEMO’S ON PS4 AND XBOX1. THERE OUT THERE BUT WE ARE NOT GETTING THEM. IT SUCKS

  • Ralph Randolph Legion

    Silent Hills?

    • Nate Sy

      I think they couldn’t get the rights for Silent Hill so they just put the letter “S” to avoid problems :P

  • Randhika Rizkyaldi

    I’m sure is that DreadOut is from Indonesia :D

  • Braheem Hazeem III

    Why isn’t monolith making a condemned 3? :(
