Not everyone likes horror games. But, for those of you that do, you have quite a few games coming soon that are related to horror. Being in the writing about video games business, I do know of quite a few coming out – and even though I don’t plan to add them to my own collection, if you like horror games, you should! Below is each title, when it is coming out (or if it came out already), images and of course purchase links where available.
Ad Infinitum is an atmospheric single-player horror game, which puts you into a World War I setting experienced in a first-person perspective. You find yourself in the trenches of a forlorn battlefield where vicious creatures lurk in the shadows. Solve challenging puzzles to clear pathways and avoid deadly traps and sneak through a maze of trenches to hide from the manifested horrors of war. The surrealistic gameworld is based upon historical background information that is mixed with some fictional elements which all culminates in a subtle yet intense story.
Release Date: TBA Still! However, this is still considered to be one of the best horror games of the year. That is, besides the next one down!
Purchase: Not available for purchase yet. Coming soon
Agony (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
Agony is an upcoming survival horror video game developed by Madmind Studio and published by PlayWay. Players begin their journey as a tormented soul within the depths of Hell without any memories about their past. The special ability to control people on their path, and even possess simple minded demons, gives the player the necessary measures to survive in the extreme conditions they are in. To say that this is scary, is an understatement. Looking at the images alone is giving me the creeps. So if you like crazy horror games or you are looking for the best horror games to play, this is probably going to be the one for you. Me? i have absolutely no interest, but if you check out the communities online that love horror games, this is a game that those people are REALLY looking forward to!
Release Date: Fall or Winter 2017. The Kickstarter campaign surpassed its goal and ended in December 2016. So they have been working on it since then.
Purchase: As of right now it is not available for pre-order. But it will be available, as the title says, for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. I can only imagine what the rating will be for this one. But, I hope for parents sakes that for ONCE they actually pay attention to the rating.
The Evil Within 2
From Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within 2 takes the acclaimed franchise to a new level with its unique blend of psychological thrills and true survival horror. Sebastian Castellanos has lost everything, including his daughter, Lily. To save her, he’s forced to partner with Mobius, the shadowy group responsible for the destruction of his former life. For his last chance at redemption, the only way out is in. The first game was incredibly well-done, it had really good reviews and was highly rated. I can only imagine what this one will be like but its sort of obvious its going to be one of the best horror games in 2017.
Purchase: Available for pre-order now. This item will be released on October 13, 2017.

White Day: A Labyrinth Named School
Prepare yourself for the scariest game of the year! when a good deed goes awry you and your fellow students are Locked inside your school at night, hunted by a killer janitor and Haunted by the troubled souls of the dead. Can you remain hidden, solve the clues and uncover the dark secrets of the building’s past to survive the deadly threats? or will the after-class horror claim your life before you can escape? This might not be one you have heard of before. There were a few others I was going to put into its place because it doesn’t seem like it would be one of the best horror games, but the other ones were a little too campy or they were uber-anime in a cutesy but scary way. Honestly if you’re looking for the best horror games you don’t want cutesy. you want scary and horrifying!
