From the sudden jump scares, grotesque monsters, unsettling atmosphere and a compelling story, the horror video game genre holds a special place in most of our hearts. The genre, in my personal opinion, really got its big break in the 1990s with video game titles like Silent Hill making their appearance.

Throughout the years the horror genre has evolved, new incredible video games have  came out to market as newer consoles launched to the masses around the world. Now that we’re in the latest generation of consoles and 2015 is upon us, here are some worthy horror video game titles you’ll want to keep a close eye on for their upcoming release dates.

Since this is a list, we’re sure there are some video games we may be missing, have a title worth checking out that is set to release in 2015, simply let us know in the comment section down below!

Call of Cthulhu

Call of Cthulhu

Developers: Frogwares Studio
Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
Platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC

Call of Cthulhu has made its rounds for quite a few years now. In fact it was first brought out to the world all the way back in 1928 by author H.P. Lovecraft through a short story featured in Weird Tales. Unfortunately,  news is still a bit scarce on the video game title though the concept images released prove to carry a very dark and mysterious atmosphere. This will be the latest Call of Cthulhu video game iteration released since Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, a video game that was well received by critics but wasn’t a major hit in market.

    1) Guys please check out the gameplay trailer for “The Hum”. Looks amazing.
    2) Being a big Walking Dead fan, I disagree with StarBreeze making it an FPS. I think 3rd person would be perfect.

    • Orioncy

      We added this to our 2016 list and yes, the game looks amazing! 😀

  • Jawad Satti

    Silent Hills isn’t going to be released until 2016. That’s definitely been confirmed. try this scary maze game also http://scarymazegame4u.com/

    • Theuniverseman

      Silent Hills isn’t in the works anymore, and that’s what has definitely been confirmed.

  • Grim Reaper

    I get to page 2 and there’s Doom… Freakin’ DOOM! Freaking first-person-high-speed-classic-run-and-gun-shooter-action Doom!
    Survival Horror?! I don’t think it means what you think it means.

    • Orioncy

      Oops, now I feel bad for placing it in our Horror game list…. I thought it was pretty scary! :’) That’s just me though!

    • Grim Reaper

      The horror I can understand to a degree, but survival? No. The survival label requires that resources are scarce and resource management is a main gameplay aspect.
      In Doom however, the only survival is shoot them and don’t get shot. If that made a survival game, that would make every shooter one.

      Doom 3 came pretty close to survival horror, but Doom 3 is nothing like the other Doom games.

    • Orioncy

      That’s very true…. ours is a horror list! I completely agree! Very true, if Doom had proper aspects of a Survival game then it would be fair…. it does not however!

      Been ages since I’ve played Doom 3 so I am not too familiar! I was a bit skeptical about even placing Doom and Dead Island 2 on our Horror list because most people just argue they are not horrors!

  • pumkin

    “Seriously, if you haven’t played this game yet then do yourself a favor and pick this game up when it releases!” Am I the only one puzzled by this sentence? If it hasn’t been released yet, it is highly unlikely that we’ve played the game.

    • Orioncy

      OMG lol! X)

  • Orioncy

    Great list, I found another list very similar ! 🙂 Anyway,

    what does everyone think of DOOM and DEAD ISLAND 2 as a horror game? If you want to check it out, it’s here! https://youtu.be/sh85xunw57M
