The darker sides of human nature have long been explored in video games, and the next titles scheduled for release in 2023 and 2024 don’t appear to be changing that trend.

You can find something on this list if you enjoy shooters, survival horror, or brutal combat. Therefore, gamers should fasten their seatbelts and get ready for the ten most violent upcoming games on the PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, PC, and Switch.

The prior projects, all of which were first-person horror games with an adult audience that were inappropriate to play in public, are very different from this one. The new game, “Tormenta,” is a third-person survival horror game that is similar to the early Silent Hill titles. It has been in production for more than two years. Compared to the earlier efforts, it has a fixed camera and less nudity. Be sure to play “Tormenta” when it launches on the upcoming console generation.
2. Mortal Combat 12
Mortal Kombat 12 will be published in 2023, along with Suicide Squad and Justice League, according to a recent statement from Warner Bros. Mortal Kombat 12’s release hasn’t yet been assigned a set date or window, though. There are rumours that E3 2023 will be an ideal venue for showcasing the game’s gameplay and releasing further details. Although Mortal Kombat 12 is rumoured to be a next-generation platform exclusive, PC crossplay will be supported.
If you’re a fan of classic throwback shooters like I am, you’re in luck since a new game called “Hyper Violent” was just released. It’s a first-person horror shooter that incorporates elements of more contemporary games like System Shock and Dead Space with more traditional retro shooters like Doom and Wolfenstein. The game claims to be extremely violent and features a science fiction background. Although there is no official release date as of yet, it has been stated that the game would initially only be available on PC.
“Ill,” one of the most eagerly awaited first-person horror shooter games, comes in at number four. Fans have been interested in this game for a while, and many have questioned whether it is indeed a game or just a concept with dramatic trailers. We can, however, attest to the fact that a committed team is actually working on a real game and has even launched a Kickstarter and Patreon campaign. Although there has been in-game footage released, a release date has not yet been specified.
5. Blasphemous 2
A fresh update on the eagerly awaited sequel, Blasphemous 2, was provided by Game Kitchen. The game will be accessible over the holidays on PC, Switch, and both console generations, according to the announcement. IGN recently posted the game’s official trailer, and Team 17 claims that it will be significantly more ambitious than its predecessor.
6. The Outlast Trials
On May 18, the new co-op game will launch on Steam through Early Access. Unlike the previous games, this one is actually a co-op game. In the multiplayer mode, up to three other players may participate. The game’s creator, Red Barrels, recently published a trailer in which it was made clear that the game would only be available on PC and previous-generation consoles.
Witchfire is item number seven on our list. The same creators behind Painkiller and Bulletstorm have created this eagerly awaited first-person dark fantasy shooter. This game, which has been in development for more than 8 years, will only be available on PC when it launches this summer. In case you missed it, a recent trailer shows off the weapons, how they function, and some fresh engine graphical upgrades.
8. The Texas Chainsaw Massacare
The highly anticipated Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game finally received an update a month ago. The update said that a testing demo would be released on August 18 for all platforms and computers. The demo test will also be accessible by the end of June and will include a multiplayer feature in addition to a sizable amount of the asymmetrical action seen in the trailer. If you didn’t see the caravan, be sure to do so.
9. Trepang 2
Tripping 2, a first-person shooter featuring slow-motion Max Payne-inspired gameplay and horror components, was announced six months ago. The game will launch later this year with a free demo accessible on Steam, according to a new trailer that has been posted. The word “,” which signifies long strides or steps in Chinese, is the source of the title. On June 21st, the game is scheduled for release. Be sure to view the trailer if you missed it.
10. Hellbreach: Vegas
Recently, a new game called “Hellbreach Vegas” was offered to us. It’s a wave-based first-person shooter and survival game that can be played solo or in co-op, online or off, and it supports both modes. The game is similar to the original Saints Row games and is set in a version of Earth that has been overrun by devilish creatures. The game is expected to go on sale in June of this year, and it will only be playable on PCs. To get a better picture of what the game will be like, watch the trailer.
