5 Multiplayer Horror Games to Look Forward to in 2015

Gamers can be a patient bunch. You wouldn’t know it by looking through what’s said in community forums or the comments section of YouTube or really any gaming blog, but those places also fail to mention the numerous difficult waits we’ve endured or continue to endure today. As much as I’d like to get my hands on another Half-Life game, I can wait for it.

The horror-loving community has had their patience tested, too. When developers first started shoehorning multiplayer components into their horror games, usually at the request of a greedy publisher, the results were almost entirely abysmal. It took a few years and a handful of failures — Resident Evil 5, Dead Space 2, Condemned 2, etc. — before we got to where we are today.

Now, we have innovative twists on multiplayer in games like Bloodborne, or the co-op mode in Dead Space 3 that doesn’t strand players with an incompetent AI.

We’ve gotten over the hump, and now we get to start reaping our rewards. If you’re interested, here are a few upcoming games that I believe could continue this trend of multiplayer modes in horror games that don’t suck.

    Until Dawn out this year? I think that looks good enough.

    Alone in the Dark: Illumination Beta already showed that this is just generic shooter, nothing else…

    • I’m just doing my part. Have you not seen Interstellar yet? Recycling is the only thing that’s keeping Matthew McConaughey from having to battle tsunamis!

  • Here is Subzero Now Plain 0

    What is the pacing of Friday the 13th? As the teenagers are you hiding from Jason or all-out shooting at him like Left 4 Dead

    • Hiding and running away from what I’ve discovered. But I believe there are certain objectives you need to do to help in your escape.

        It would be cool if it followed in the footsteps of Alien Isolation…

  • Resident Evil 5 was the highest earning game in the franchise up to it’s release. So I don’t think you can can call it a failure no matter what the internet claims.

      Yes if you call it Action Adventure and no single Word of Horror please 🙂

      RE5 was a failure in the sense of story, it wasn’t as compelling as the original or RE2 and the suspense and horror atmospheric elements were missing. After all RE is survival horror not survival action, or survival shoot em up

    Friday The 13th shouldn’t even count. We haven’t heard dirt shit on that game since Cnningham ‘confirmed’ it. Supposed to be out for major consoles in less than 6 months yet we haven’t even seen a single screenshot or know what studio is even publishing it.

    Until Dawn is at the top of my list, and I’m excited to hear more about Friday the 13th. It has lots of potential as does Summer Camp.

  • Nick Peratrovich

  • RawBeard

    Anyone know if Summer Camp and the Friday the 13th games are coming to Consoles (Xbox One) they sound the most interesting. And Summer Camp sounds like an idea I’ve been playing around with in my head.
