Freakers, Eldritch Horrors, Fazbears and... Undead Knights?

It would be fair to say 2019 has given us one of the most eclectic mixes of horror games in years, offering a novel new take on survival after a global pandemic, a surprising reimagining of an all-time classic, a completely terrifying new way to experience the worst night job ever, new approaches to psychological horror where seemingly simple decisions can have very different outcomes on the narrative - just to name a few. With all that variety, we decided to pull together some notable examples of these genres and more, plus a little something spooky in games you might not have expected. Take a peek - if you dare.

Days Gone Key Art
Play as Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter facing a brutal struggle for survival, searching for a reason to live.
At its core, Days Gone is about survivors and what makes them human: desperation, loss, madness, betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, regret, love—and hope. It's about how, even when confronted with such enormous tragedy, hope never dies.
Resident Evil 2 Key Art
The genre-defining masterpiece Resident Evil 2 returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 2 offers a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-poundingly immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game.
The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan Key Art
Enter the world of The Dark Pictures - A series of standalone cinematic horror games. Players will be challenged to explore and uncover each story with the knowledge that all their choices have consequences and all playable characters can live, any and all can die...
Man of Medan is the first game in The Dark Pictures anthology, bringing supernatural horror to the South Pacific. Five friends set sail on a holiday diving trip with a rumored WWII wreck to find. As the day unfolds and a storm rolls in, their trip soon changes into something much more sinister. Who will live? Who will die? It’s down to you. Can you save them all?
The Sinking City Key Art
Developed by Frogwares, the award-winning studio famous for the Sherlock Holmes series, The Sinking City is an adventure and investigation game set in an open world inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, the master of horror.
Step in the shoes of a 1920s investigator, a tortured truth seeker sucked into an adventure that goes beyond his personal goals and beliefs.
Trapped in a city afflicted by a supernatural flood, you explore an urban open world, infiltrate its secretive society and investigate cases putting your common sense to the test with the goal of saving what can be, and most importantly, yourself.
MediEvil Key Art
Re-live the original adventure on PlayStation 4. The beloved fan-favorite has been completely remade from the grave up, blending classic gameplay with stunning visuals, all in eye-popping 4K!
Step into the bones of Sir Daniel Fortesque, a slightly-inept (and long dead) knight accidentally resurrected by his greatest enemy, the evil sorcerer Zarok. With a second chance to foil his greatest foe, Dan will once again set out to save the kingdom of Gallowmere and earn his place as a true hero.
Erica Key Art
Enter a dangerous and shadowy world of murder and cultists in this pioneering interactive thriller, exclusive to PS4, that asks you to reach into the game world and take control of the narrative.
Become Erica, a brave young lady plagued with nightmares of your father's murder. With the traumatic events that have haunted you as a child dragged back into the light of the present day vis grisly new clues, it's up to you to unearth the shocking truth behind this devastating tragedy. Every choice you make influences how the game develops, with multiple endings awaiting you at the finale of the emotional branching narrative.
