The year of 2017 brought several scary games on the play list. Just check have you already played all of them?
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC Release Date: January 24
Resident Evil 7 is highly expected, especially considering the changes that Capcom took in the latest chapter. Firth of all, it should be mentioned, that there is no sigh of well-known Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine and Leon Kennedy; the story does not take place in the city full of zombies. In particular, the player will get a new character Ethan Winters – he travels in Louisiana looking for his missing wife. The game is fully 1-st person; PS4 supports PSVR, so the virtual reality is available.
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC Release: Q1 2017
Red Barrels want to make the future game as terrible as possible, so they have even held a Kickstarter campaign to get money for Outlast 2-themed underwear. If the first game took place in a mental hospital with freaks, the second one will take the player to the Arizona desert to investigate the murder of a pregnant woman – Jane Doe. At the beginning of the game, the main character – Blake Langermann – loses his wife and goes to a village of some cult. Besides, Blake cannot riposte at all, so the only thing left is to use his camcorder and stealth to avoid the enemies. This will make Outlast 2 one of the scariest games.
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One Release Date: February 14
With PC version being already launched, Telltale’s The Walking Dead series will come on console in time for Valentine’s Day. Clementine comes back, so the story will be about new character Javier – he is doing all his best to protect the family from succumbing to the zombie horde. It is unlikely to have as much jump scares as Outlast 2. While not confirmed, the following horror games may come out in 2017.
Dead Island 2
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC Release: TBA
In the original Dead Island, the player finds himself on a tropical island full of the undead. This time, the story is about the zombie apocalypse in sunny California. The character will make dangerous weapons from different parts and tools – motorized grinders and electric machetes. A little information about Dead Island 2 is known so far.
Platforms: PS4 Release: TBA
The title “Days Gone” summons in the mind the scene of tons zombies running from a train car. An infinite number of enemies on the screen at once is the key feature of the game. At the same, the Pacific Northwest-inspired open world and opportunities to walk everywhere in search of things to craft items seem very attractive. The developers have not confirmed the release date for 2017, though they will give more information about this game soon.
