June 4, 2022

There is a lot to look forward to for Horror fans in 2022, with some proposed titles on the horizon that promise to bring frights and fun from both a AAA and Indie standpoint. To better showcase some of these awesome upcoming releases, here’s a look at some Horror titles coming in 2022 that we’re pretty hyped for.

Dead Space (2022)

Those that played through the original Dead Space know just how terrifying the survival horror release really was. Standing tall as one of the scariest games of the modern age, Dead Space looked and felt incredible back when it was released in 2008.

Now, fourteen plus years later, fans are anxiously awaiting a proposed remake of the iconic classic. It’s hard to imagine Dead Space being even more terrifying, but with new tools, better visuals, and upgraded sound design, players may just be in for one of the most unsettling experiences ever made.

The Outlast Trials

The first two Outlast titles have been nothing short of heart-racing. There is something supremely unsettling about being forced to contend with an array of enemies without an easy way to fight back. Outlast has done well to build a cast of creepy characters that have a way of getting underneath a players’ skin.

The Outlast Trials will attempt to capitalize on these iconic characters by creating an episodic-like series that helps to tell the stories behind some of the most notorious names in the Outlast series.

Choo Choo Charles

It might seem strange to be hyped about a Horror game that warps and twisted a beloved children’s icon but there is a lot of interest in Choo Choo Charles thanks to developer updates about the project. With clear influences from Creepypastas and a horror-turned Thomas the Tank Engine, Choo Choo Charles is shaping up to be a truly enthralling game that sees players trying to build, craft, and outwit a murderous spider-like train that will hunt them relentlessly across an open world.

It’s going to be really interesting to see what the finished product looks like for this release but there is so much to be excited about just from the few snippets of gameplay and screenshots we’ve seen so far.

Sons Of The Forest

The Forest was a sleeper hit, propelling a sandbox-style Indie release to superstardom and a dedicated cult following. Built like a horror-themed Minecraft, The Forest had players exploring an island, doing whatever they could to survive, while simultaneously building structures and crafting items to help defend against some truly bloodthirsty cannibalistic enemies.

Sons of the Forest looks to expand on the popular formula, giving players even better visuals, scarier enemies, and more to build. The survival elements look to be amped up a bit this time, and there should be a great and engrossing story to follow along, with or without friends.

Resident Evil 4 Remake

The Resident Evil franchise is truly iconic, a franchise that is beloved by horror fans and survival fans alike, thanks to its unique zombie-filled premise, puzzle-solving, and engaging bosses. There have been a lot of great Resident Evil titles added to the long-running franchise but Resident Evil 4 stands as one of the best ever made.

Fans who loved playing through the original release are likely chomping at the bit to play the proposed remake. Hopefully, it will retain everything about the original that fans knew and loved, while simultaneously infusing it with modern elements, similar to what was done with the popular Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes.
