6 Upcoming Horror Games That Look Absolutely Terrifying

Zombie Studios is the studio behind the series of games based on the Saw films, a mixed bag of games that started off with serious potential before Flesh & Blood went and ruined it all. 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.

For starters, unless you count your camera phone, you’re totally unarmed. Amnesia, Slender, Outlast (more on that later), this has become a trend. While I don’t necessarily need every horror game I play to throw me into a dangerous area without a weapon, I’m glad more developers are jumping on this bandwagon.

That’s great, but to me what’s most interesting about Daylight is how short it is. It’s bite-sized horror. A playthrough can be completed in thirty minutes, and thanks to the prowess of Epic’s new Unreal Engine 4, each time you play the world is randomly generated, making every playthrough unique.

    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

      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:
