In this article, we share the 18 new upcoming horror games of 2023 and 2024 for PS5, Xbox series X/S, PCs, and next consoles, from The Bridge Curse to Bandai’s Little Nightmares III and Alan Wake to the most anticipated survival horror, Quantum Error, and more.
1. Alan Wake 2
I’m assuming you’re catching up with the ongoing game Scum since a few days ago, so in that case number one, we have well, plenty of news on Alan Wig too, and who would have thought it’s actually releasing on October 27th, 2023, that is on PCs and the next generation of consoles only, as we suspected? You see, Remedy actually released about 10 good minutes of new in-game footage with great racing 4K DLSS all nine yards. Alan Wake, the sequel, if you need a memory jog, is an action-survival horror story with a heavy narrative.
Coming from the same studio behind those who remain at number two, we have the company’s most anticipated title from earlier this year, something you’re going by the name beneath; it’s a first-person action horror adventure and a thriller, and I read somewhere it’s basically a mix of Outlasts with Subnautica, if that even makes sense. The beneath is now coming to PCs on the next generation of consoles only in the first quarter of 2024.
3. The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation
After announcing its physical editions a while ago, East Asia’s Soft and Soft Star Entertainment finally released it on August 34 for PlayStation and Xbox consoles, in addition to a final patch with English voiceovers and PCs for Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation. If you missed The bridge curse, which is, by the way, available as a demo, you can try it out on Steam. It’s a cinematic, rather movie-themed, atmospheric order game with legit jump scares.
4. Tormented Souls 2
PQube just announced a sequel to the very well-received Silent Hill-inspired slash Resident Evil classic survival horror game Tormented Souls 2, saying their new game will now be coming to PCS in the next generation of consoles with a release date of early to mid-next year, 2024. Guys, if you missed out on the original game, only the willing are always willing. This was every bit as good a component of a Resident Evil classic as one of the awards upon release, and this is really how the new game will eventually look.
I believe the first time we’re mentioning it over here is number five. We’ve got over here the retrieval of a cinematic horror action adventure game from a new developer in town, and this is the first work in which the player will follow the journey of the commander of a research team on a planet about 18.6 billion miles away from Earth, whereas the protagonists you see suddenly fall due to an unfortunate event under the surface of the wrong planet, and this is not what you want to see anyway. The game is a little bit like Root Tunnel on another channel. It’s a PlayStation to PC exclusive also, and it’s going to be released this week.
6. Little Nightmares III
Supermassive Games, on the other hand, is the same developer as Dark Future Mythologies and did the most unusual thing: they actually took over the rights to the Little Nightmare series from Bandai and are apparently developing a new entry in the series. Theory will this time be kebab multiplayer if you desire to come in on a PC, console, or even switch early next year, in 2024.
7. Alone in the Dark
Coming up behind that is, well, one of the biggest surprise reveals of the Tiochio Nordic Showcase from last year alone in the dark, which is a reimagining version of the first three games in the original series that were released almost like 30 years ago. They’re being built from the ground up and are now said to be released on October 25, 2023, and to accompany the great news, we got a new trailer for them.
8. Post Trauma
Coming up behind that, we have another Resident Evil slash Silent Hill-inspired in-the-making game that goes by post trauma, whereas it’s a survival horror game where you play like a 57-year-old man who has awakened in a pretty strange place and now has to find a way out of this home and out into his family. I mean, the trailer here is new; we’ve got a new trailer; the game is available through a demo; and it’s going to be coming out between January and March 2024. I believe the last time we actually mentioned this game was around the same time last year.
Unholy, however, is also available on Steam through a demo and the previously announced release date of July, assuming you already knew about an unspecified date within 2023. Guys, Unholy is… I don’t think I’m alone in saying this may be the best game and looks that we’re looking at over here, one of them at least on the horizon, but only that the gameplay seems to be just fine. Playing the demo, I’m saying we’re going to have to just wait a little longer to find out if the game’s legitimate.
10. Ad infinitum
Make On just announced a delayed release date of September for Add Infinitum. That game’s not going to be released later this month; it’s now coming to the PlayStation 5 Work Series on PCs only, and apparently a little later on the past generation of consoles as well. The Ad infinitum developers stated that the player takes on the role of a German soldier in the First World War who has to go through his own mind to figure out what’s reality and what’s madness.
11. The 7th Guest VR
Coming from the same team that brought Arizona sunshine and after the fall games, we’ve got over here another virtual reality game in the making since last year, going by the seventh guest VR. It’s a PC exclusive (see the PlayStation 5 VR exclusive), and it’s also playable like a normal game without VR support. Stories about six people or six guests that have been invited to a very fancy mansion Here’s the thing, I believe: it’s a mix of gameplay from the room games, specifically the last one that was made in VR with the game 9 hours, 9 doors, and nine people. This piece of a new IPR will be released on October 19, 2023.
Coming from the same people who made Phobia, the fine survival horror game with a lot of rewards. In June last year, we got over here to see the company’s next survival horror game, which is being developed using Unreal Engine 5 and is more atmospheric than a survival puzzle horror game. There’s something going by the name Project A.I.L.A. take a look of above A.I.L.A trailer with some gameplay in case you missed it. The game was revealed a month ago; it’s coming to PCS and the PlayStation 5 only next year, in 2024.
13. The Bridge Curse 2: The Extrication
Number 13 with a demo on scene on the way we’ve got to read the sequel to The One and Only game that we mentioned, the bridge curse road to Salvation, if you do like Japanese horror and atmospheric cinematic games, if you didn’t know the bridge of curses goat even through its demo, after all the positive reception the first games got, they are actually making a sequel to it even though the first game isn’t even released fully on consoles, and this is how it’ll eventually look.
14. Stray Souls
Stray Souls been in the making for over a year now, revealed again a couple weeks ago in case you missed it, and we’ve got it over here. Stray Souls is a psychological survival horror adventure and story-focused game that was announced in 2020 and being developed using Unreal Engine 5, and it’s coming out by the end of the year 2023. Stray Souls is said to combine Japanese survival horror elements with Western thrillers and a heaping amount of puzzles.
15. Quantum Error
On November 3 this year, we can actually get our hands on Quantum Error, one of the most anticipated survival horror and Unreal Engine 5 made projects that would actually scratch from the ground up a couple times to make it graphically look much better, and now finally using Unreal Engine 5, like I mentioned, the game is no longer a PlayStation 5 exclusive; it’s going to be coming to PCs and Xbox series X as well, and we’re coming to the great news that we’ve got some more gameplay for it too.
16. Kona II: Brume
Coming up behind that, it’s the sequel to an almost seven-year-old survival adventure, or rather, thriller, murder mystery in feel, that was quite a bit well received on Steam. The companies just came up with the word that their new game over here, Kona 2 Broome, continues the story of the interactive tale of Kona and offers players another story arc, a bigger world, better visuals, and it’s even going to be coming to consoles simultaneously upon release.
17. Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt
Available through the Steam demo PC exclusive at number 17, we have horror stories. Harvest Hunts and other single-player stealth survival horror games blend the replay ability of roguelikes with the tension of a melee horror game, meaning each night of this game of hunts delivers a pretty unique terrifying experience that requires strategic approaches, some calm nerves, and a lot of survival instincts. The game will release fully next year.
18. Paranormal Tales
And last but not least, digital cyber cherries is finally revealing a new gameplay trailer for Paranormal Tales, showcasing some of the best things you’re going to see today for months in horror gaming because it’s using Unreal Engine 5, and more portable tales for those of you is a PT-inspired Next Generation or technically PC-exclusive body cam-style horror game based on found footage with retro elements. The Paranormal Tales game is going to come to PCs only later, in 2023.
