Back 4 Blood
Release: October 12th
With some of you now likely to be nearing the end of Resident Evil Village (or perhaps even already being done with it), we thought you might be itching for another slice of horror gaming to try out once the game has run its course. To that end, we’ve compiled a list of 15 terrifying titles that are expected to launch on Xbox throughout 2021 and beyond. There should be something for all kinds of fright fans: jump scares, psychological horror, zombie-blasting action, cosmic horror… it’s all accounted for here. If you dare peek out from behind your sofa, you might just find the next scary game to add to your must-play list.
Starting this list with a return to a classic formula feels like as good a place as any. Back 4 Blood is the latest co-op shooter from Left 4 Dead developer, Turtle Rock Studios. Take on the role of a human survivor, team up with some buddies, and attempt to eradicate hordes of parasite-infected ‘Ridden’ from the city.
Play as a physicist in search of his missing wife in a non-linear survival horror RPG. Chernobylite is set within a digitally recreated Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, and features otherworldly creatures that have escaped through a breach that links our realm with theirs.
Dead Static Drive
Dead Static Drive is a top-down horror survival adventure that’s described by the developer as “Grand Theft Cthulhu.” You need to find a way to survive your road trip and reach your family by any means possible. The artwork and atmosphere here looks awesome, and ticks all of the right boxes for a comic book-style cosmic horror adventure.
The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes
The third entry into the Dark Pictures Anthology series, House of Ashes takes players to a Sumerian temple buried beneath Iraq. Uncovered by a group of Special Forces soldiers looking for weapons at the end of the Iraq War, the temple holds a nest of ancient unearthly creatures. The team will need to work with the people they once called enemies if they hope to survive. Dying Light 2
Information surrounding Dying Light 2 has been slim since the game’s announcement in 2018, but Techland has said that more details will be released a little later this year. Play as Aiden Caldwell to fight the infected hordes during the night and human survivors during the day in a bid to save the people of a decaying city. Evil Dead: The Game
The team that brought us the zombie swarming fun of World War Z is now tackling the horror classic featuring Ash Williams. In Evil Dead: The Game, you can take control of Ash or one of his friends in a co-op battle against the creatures of the Necronomicon. You’ll need to work as a team to close the breach between worlds, or work against each other in PvP online matches. The game is inspired by the three original Evil Dead films and the Ash vs Evil Dead TV show. In Sound Mind
Release: August 3rd
Uncover the secrets of a town and the unsettling story it holds through memories in this psychological horror adventure. It’s probably best not to play this if you have any fears of faceless dolls… or any dolls, really. In Sound Mind features boss fights, fast-paced puzzles, and a soundtrack that features original music by The Living Tombstone. Martha is Dead
Your twin sister is found dead in Tuscany during World War II and you’re left to look for answers to explain her demise. The story features mysterious folklore that unravels as the horrors of war bear down on you and treats you to an experience of psychological stress. Will you be able to find out what happened to your sister? Observer: System Redux
