These 17 entries aren't even all the terrifying games slated to land next year, with other titles such as Hunt: Showdown and Metro Exodus better classified as shooters, so they hit our list of most anticipated FPS games of 2018 instead.

\n

Plenty of other big-name, anxiously awaited games have the possibility to drop next year, with no specific release date announced yet. Maybe we will actually get Death Stranding in 2018?

\n

Remothered: Tormented Fathers

\n

Developer: Stormind Games
Platforms: PC, PS4
Release Date: TBA 2018

\n

There's a major Clock Tower/Silent Hill vibe going on with this one, and it's refreshing to see a different protagonist, as you play as a middle-aged woman in a suit rather than an action hero.

\n

Remothered: Tormented Fathers sadly just came to my attention, so it didn't make the list of Early Access titles in our State Of Horror 2017 article, but rest assured we'll be covering this one more in the coming months. A portion of the game is out on Early Access at Steam now, with the full version landing on PS4 and PC next year.

Stygian: Reign Of The Old Ones

\n

Developer: Cultic Games
Platforms: PC
Release Date: TBA

\n

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is a game very solidly aimed at the old-school PC RPG fans. If you couldn't get enough of Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale, etc., then you need to be closely watching this game's development.

\n

The setting is very different from those fantasy affairs though, taking place in the Lovecraftian staple of 1920's New England . . . except in this alternate history, Cthulhu already rose, and humanity is on the brink of annihilation.

\n

Madness and death are around every corner as a scattered humanity lives out its last days. Although it won't have the visceral terror of a first-person game, it's a good bet Stygian will deliver both as a classic RPG and as a horror title.

Ad Infinitum

\n

Developer: StrixLab
Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4
Release Date: TBA

\n

Honestly, this atmospheric single-player game probably isn't going to actually come out next year, but it's worth keeping an eye on anyway just in case.

\n

As if the unrelenting hell of war in the trenches during WWI wasn't horrifying enough, now there's some sort of supernatural or psychological threat to deal with as well in Ad Infinitum.

\n

The claustrophobia of those tight trench tunnels can already make a person break a sweat, but add in something horrible chasing you that can do a lot worse than a bayonet or grenade, and it's COD meets Hellraiser!

The Last of Us 2

\n

Developer: Naughty Dog
Platforms: PS4 Exclusive
Release Date: TBA 2018

\n

Before anyone gets all up in arms, I would defy anyone to play the opening scene of The Last of Us or to consider the connotations of the story's ending and tell me that's not a horror game.

\n

Now that we've got that nonsense out of the way, is there anyone out there who isn't stoked beyond belief for The Last of Us 2 to land next year? Seriously, the PS4 is killing it on exclusives lately, and this just make the hype more real.

The Shattering

\n

Developer: Super Sexy Software / Deck 13 
Platforms: PC
Release Date: Q1 2018

\n

The Shattering is about as different on the visual front as you can possibly get from any other horror game, with starkly white, austere rooms making up your dreamscape.

\n

Working on the notion that emptiness is more upsetting to the human mind than darkness, there is a total lack of combat as the game messes with your -- the player's -- mind instead. 

\n

This is looking to be a very different type of game than Deck13's previous titles like The Surge or Lords of the Fallen. It's a bit up in the air as to whether this will be something experimental but ultimately a one-hit wonder like Super Hot, or if it might really strike a chord with gamers due to its offbeat nature.

Dead Matter

\n

Developer: Quantum Integrity
Platforms: PC
Release Date: February 2018 (estimated)

\n

Although definitely an indie affair, this sandbox survival-horror entry looks like it will go incredibly in depth with a variety of subsystems such as water lines, player-made structures, radio stations, and more.

\n

While there have been plenty of zombie games, a truly immersive open world experience that brings the real world to life in a post-apocalyptic scenario has been elusive, and Dead Matter aims to rectify that situation.

\n

The Dead Matter release date listed above is the Kickstarter "expected fulfillment" date, and developers have essentially never met that date on a crowdfunded game, well, ever, so expect it to slip back towards the end of the year.

Project Wight

\n

Developer: The Outsiders
Platforms: PC
Release Date: TBA

\n

Here we've got something very off the beaten path -- an alternate history Viking horror game about transforming into something monstrous and hunting down people who have nearly eradicated your species.

\n

Project Wight's extremely unique subject matter, coupled with the fact that you start as a relatively weak baby creature fleeing humans and then move forward through time, has officially got my interest piqued.

\n

It's sort of like playing the opposite side of The Witcher! Aside from asymmetrical titles like Friday the 13th or Dead by Daylight, there aren't many games that let you play as the monster, so it's a welcome change to see that finally happening with Project Wight.

Moons Of Madness

\n

Developer: Rock Pocket Games,
Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4
Release Date: Sometime 2018

\n

Moons Of Madness is another Lovecraftian entry, but this one looks quite a bit different from either Call Of Cthulhu or The Sinking City. While many of those types of games deal with what comes up out of the sea, fewer cover what's out there among the darkness between the stars.

\n

Of course there will be liberties taken in the name of game design, but what's interesting about this project is its focus on "hard science," taking a more realistic bent -- so think more The Martian than Star Wars on the sci-fi elements.

Scorn Part 1: Dasein

\n

Developer: Ebb Software
Platforms: PC
Release Date: October 2018

\n

There have been some amazing highs and devastating lows in Scorn's history, from a jaw-dropping trailer that had the whole horror world abuzz to times where it seemed like the project was dead in the water.

\n

When I first saw that disturbing, flesh-focused world in the game's original teaser video, I was hooked and knew I'd be on board no matter where development ended up going. 

\n

While I'm not exactly overjoyed that the game has been split into two, I'm still hopeful we'll get something that messes with our minds on the level of SOMA, while giving us an insane Giger-esque world with major touches of Cronenberg in the flesh-meets-technology style.

Days Gone

\n

Developer: SIE Bend Studio
Platforms: PS4 Exclusive
Release Date: TBA

\n

We may be stretching just what qualifies as a "horror" game here, as the emphasis seems clearly more on the action, but since it takes place in a world where zombies (sorry, "freakers" in this case) have destroyed civilization, I'd say Days Gone qualifies.

\n

The biker protagonist is what will shake up the formula a bit here, putting some serious Sons Of Anarchy action into a game somewhat akin to The Last of Us, but with an absurd number of zombies on the screen at once to rival Dead Rising.

The Inpatient

\n

Developer: Supermassive Games
Platforms: PS4 Exclusive
Release Date: January 24, 2018

\n

After the success of the PS4 exclusive slasher title Until Dawn, it shouldn't be much of a surprise that more games in that franchise were in the works. Like its oddly on-rail sequel Rush Of Blood, this prequel, titled The Inpatient, will be a VR-only game.

\n

The Inpatient dives back 60 years into the past and the events that took place at Blackwood Sanatorium, expanding on the mythology of Until Dawn. We know there will be a branching narrative with different possible outcomes, so based around the setting and what we discovered in Until Dawn, it leaves me wondering if you will eventually become a Wendigo yourself . . . or perhaps if you are responsible for them being unleashed from the sanitarium seen in the first game.

\n

Either way, the prospect of playing through a nefarious sanitarium where supernatural monsters are sure to be roaming in a VR setting sure sounds like it will get the blood pumping!

State Of Decay 2

\n

Developer: Undead Labs
Platforms: PC, Xbox One
Release Date: Spring 2018

\n

Since Dead Island 2 is probably never going to arrive, and who knows what's happening with the Left 4 Dead franchise, we've got to look now to State Of Decay 2 for our co-op zombie apocalypse fun on consoles. The game is shaping up to be a pretty stellar combination of hard choices, tactical combat, and open-world survival.

\n

If you haven't gotten into the State Of Decay series yet, think of the RPG elements and large areas in a zombie apocalypse wasteland from Dead State, but with the better visuals and faster pace of something like Left 4 Dead. The mixing of styles offers up something really compelling for console players, and the sequel aims to expand that even further.

The Sinking City

\n

Developer: Frogwares
Platforms: PC, presumably consoles
Release Date: Unannounced

\n

After Frogwares passed development of the official Call Of Cthulhu game to Cyanide, they immediately got to work on . . . a Lovecraftian Cthulhu-style game. Yeah, I don't get what happened there either, but whatever, I'll take two cosmic horror games instead of one.

\n

What sets The Sinking City apart is that it's an open-world game, and while the setting clearly calls to mind Innsmouth, it's done quite a bit differently, as the various districts of the game are slowly dropping beneath the waves. The city generator tool, in fact, is going to be released to fans so players can create their own versions of the city directly.

\n

If the promo art is any indicator, The Sinking City also looks to be a lot more explicit on the monster front than Call Of Cthulhu. We may be overly optimistic in expecting it to land as a full release by the end of 2018, but fingers crossed.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

\n

Developer: ArtPlay
Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch
Release Date: March 2018

\n

It's hard to believe we first saw the Kickstarter for this spiritual successor to Symphony Of The Night all the way back in early 2015! Koji Igarashi's love letter to his Castlevania series is finally almost here, and it's looking to be a bloody good time.

\n

In true horror fashion, I'm a relentless pessimist, so I've got this nagging feeling we might sadly end up in Mighty No. 9 or NightCry territory with another crowdfunded flop. Pray to all the dark gods out there that I'm very, very wrong.

Agony

\n

Developer: Madmind Studio
Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4
Release Date: March 30, 2018

\n

This long-awaited titled was also on our list last year but got pushed back in recent months. But if it means a better game, I've got no problem with that development. The big draw to Agony is in its location -- you start out already in hell!

\n

The possibilities there for a horrifying gaming experience are endless, and based on the latest trailers, it's clear we are in for some very disturbing material. Calling to mind a bit of H.R. Giger, it's clear there's a serious vaginal motif going on with many of the demonic things to be found in the pits of hell.

\n

With any luck, this one will end up hitting as hard as Outlast and become a new classic of atmospheric horror.

Call Of Cthluhu

\n

Developer: Cyanide
Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4
Release Date: TBA 2018

\n

Due to the mangled path of this elusive game's development shifting between two different companies, Call Of Cthulhu has managed to make our most anticipated lists for the coming year ... a solid three years in a row now! Third time's a charm, am I right?

\n

This new take on the Cthulhu Mythos features investigator Edward Pierce delving into the mysteries on Darkwater Island, and it looks like it will manage to get the proper pacing and style to match Lovecraft (rather than an action game).

\n

The way the insanity system is being implemented is also quite a bit different than what we've seen before. Hopefully the controls and difficulty won't be as maddening as Dark Corners Of The Earth!

Lust for Darkness

\n

Developer: Movie Games
Platforms: PC
Release Date: Q1 2018

\n

Ready for something really different? This one features a main character seeking satisfaction on the border of two intertwining worlds -- one in an old Victorian mansion (anyone else thinking of Eyes Wide Shut?) and one in another dimension altogether with some Cthulhu Mythos overtones.

\n

Erotica has entangled with horror in many different mediums over the ages, but video games tend to shy away from that due to the ESRB, so it's a welcome surprise to see that trend getting bucked here with the psychological horror entry Lust for Darkness.

\n

While the promo imagery makes it clear that sexuality intertwined with the occult and BDSM will play a key role, it obviously must be toned down or off-screen enough that Steam will still let the game be sold, so it's not quite clear just how far the game will really go.

\n

There's a lot of room here for unintentional comedy or for the sexual aspects to really fall flat, so hopefully this new developer has all its ducks in a row before release. Consider me "cautiously optimistic" for something worth playing that just might change how we view horror games.

The horror genre has been absolutely thriving lately, with knockout entries arriving to revitalize the Resident Evil franchise and keep survival horror going strong with The Evil Within 2.

Sony at E3 2017: It's All About the Games https://www.gameskinny.com/i22ws/sony-at-e3-2017-its-all-about-the-games https://www.gameskinny.com/i22ws/sony-at-e3-2017-its-all-about-the-games Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:36:41 -0400 LuckyJorael

As with years past, Sony's E3 focus for 2017 highlighted upcoming games for the PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, and PlayStation VR. After showing off Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Horizon: Zero Dawn's DLC "The Frozen Wilds", and Days Gone, Shawn Layden took the stage and said simply, "We love games, and we want to see more of them tonight. It's all about the games."

And Sony delivered the games. Trailer after trailer came on the screen at the Los Angeles Convention Center; Sony showed off a whopping 17 games during their hour on stage, while Shawn Layden had a bare few minutes of time on the stage, comparatively.

Like Layden said: "It's all about the games."  So here's what Sony showed off.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

The focus of Naughty Dog's Uncharted 4 spinoff, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, seems to be the tenuous relationship between its two protagonists, Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross, as they scour India in search of the Tusk of Ganesha. Fans of the series should expect the puzzles, combat, and harrowing climbing sequences Uncharted has come to be known for. The stand-alone game comes out August 22, for $39.99. 

Horizon: Zero Dawn - "The Frozen Wilds"

Set in a frigid landscape, "The Frozen Wilds" introduces players to a new tribe surviving in the robo-dinosaur strewn landscape of Horizon: Zero Dawn, as well as a mysterious mountain with a roiling, lightning-filled storm clouding its peak. "The Frozen Wilds" is expected to release later this year.

Days Gone

Bend Studio's zombie adventure game Days Gone got a new trailer at Sony's E3 Showcase, showing off some great-looking character animations, hand-to-hand combat, driving, and zombie hordes. We also got to see what happens to animals when they eat zombie meat: zombie animals (specifically zombie bears!). Days Gone will release on December 29, exclusively on the PlayStation 4.

Monster Hunter: World

The latest title in the Monster Hunter series strays only slightly from the previous titles in the series in that it is an open-world game, as opposed to having sectioned-off portions of the map from previous games. Aside from that, expect the same gathering, crafting, trapping, and giant weapons fans of the games have come to expect. Oh, and turning meat over an open fire.

Monster Hunter: World releases in early 2018 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Shadow of the Colossus

The beloved PlayStation 2 title Shadow of the Colossus is getting an HD remake, scheduled for a 2018 release exclusively on the PlayStation 4. Check out the trailer below:

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

Sony debuted a new story trailer for the fighting game, highlighting the undoubtedly convoluted plot and the interactions between Marvel favorites and Capcom's characters. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite releases September 19, on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but Capcom has released a story demo alongside the newest trailer, which you can grab now on PS4 and Xbox One. No gameplay footage was shown during the showcase. 

Call of Duty: WWII
