This year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo has already previewed many upcoming horror games, including Fortnight, The Evil Within 2, and Vampyr, and now here come some more trailers!
Platform: PlayStation 4, XBox One, PC
Release Date: Later this year
Genre: First-person survival horror
Synopsis: “Players will begin their journey as tormented soul [sic] within the depths of hell without any memories about his past. The special ability to control people on their path and even possess simple minded demons, gives the player the necessary measures to survive in the extreme conditions they are in. By exploring hostile environment and interacting with the other weary souls of the hellscape, the hero will understand that there is only one way to escape from Hell, and it will require a meeting with the mystic Red Goddess.” (agonygame.com)
The game trailer was released last year, but there were delays in development. However, they seem to have been straightened out, and the game will soon be available.
Platform: PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR
Release Date: None yet
Genre: First-person survival horror
Synopsis: “Set on board a deep-space scientific vessel called The Persistence in the year 2521, the ship arrives at the site of a collapsing star 17,000 light years from Earth. While conducting a major experiment, a horrific incident occurs mutating many of the crew. As the Persistence is pulled into the gravity of the collapsing star, the ship’s computer, IRIS, wakes enough remaining members of the crew from cryogenic sleep – one at a time. Can you stay alive long enough to save The Persistence?” (playstation.com)
In case you missed it, there are zombie creatures!
Unto the End
Platform: PlayStation 4, PC, XBox One
Release Date: 2018
Synopsis: “Unto The End is a 2D cinematic adventure with skillful sword-based combat and emergent gameplay. You take the role of a father, who sets out on a quest for vengeance after his family is killed by a ferocious beast. It’s a journey driven by unforgiving encounters, meaningful choices, and moments of stark beauty. Unto the End presents combat as a discipline, with opponents acting savagely to protect their territory within the indifferent wilderness. Encounters will culminate in one of various directions, using your stealth, cunning or even restraint to progress along the path. Combat is a weighty and hard-fought exertion against the environment, the beasts you encounter and, ultimately, your own strength as you approach your opponent’s retribution.” (playstation.com)
Plus it’s gory!
Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, XBox One
Genre: Multiplayer shooter
Release date: None yet
Synopsis: “You and your partner are members of a secret hunting society that tracks and kills monsters. The bounties are high, but so are the risks. The smallest mistake will cost you everything–your bounty, your gear, your life, and your very soul. Some hunt for wealth, some for power. Some hunt to protect others, some hunt for glory. You must track your quarry through a dark and treacherous world. Winner takes all. Fail, and go straight to hell […] Hunting for sport is child’s play. This is a different kind of game, one with high stakes and even higher rewards. You will face creatures that want to gorge themselves on your flesh and devour your soul. Everything and everyone is against you–even the earth itself. Make one mistake, and you will die in filth, forgotten. Succeed, and the bounty and the glory will be immense.” (huntshowdown.com)
After being stuck in development hell, the game will be ready for public testing “soon.”
