Halloween is just around the corner and it’s usually a great time for gamers as well. There’s a ton of offers going around on hardware, but most importantly we get a much-awaited STEAM sale.
Today we are going to list the top 5 horror games you should pick from Steam’s Halloween sale.
1. Alien Isolation
Alien Isolation is a survival horror game and it’s absolutely terrifying. You play as Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda. The game is set on a spaceship named “Nostromo“, which works great as a horrifying environment. The game world brilliantly adds up to the horror with tight spaces and dark corners, even the music plays its part well. What makes Alien Isolation stand out is its presence of persistent fear, because you know something terrifying is just around the corner.
The game has a 75% discount for the duration of the sale selling for just 9.99$ USD. You can purchase it here.
2. Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
This is another brilliant survival horror game. Fans familiar with previous Resident Evil games might not feel at home, as it moves away from gun-based combat. It’s set in modern day rural America and takes place after the events of Resident Evil 6.
Gamers who like a challenge will be pleased as it’s not an easy game. There are jump scares here and there but the overall spooky environment keeps the players on their toes at all times. There is a 35% discount right now and you can purchase it on Steam for $19.42.
This is a Sci-Fi horror game developed by Frictional Games, who also created Amnesia. The game doesn’t tell you what is happening outright, you have to put the clues together as you progress.
The game is set on an isolated facility under the ocean and this creates a very interesting setting for a horror game. The story premise is very deep-seated and deals with subjects like consciousness and identity. You can purchase the game on Steam for 6$ USD, which is at an 80% discount from the normal pricing.
We again have a first-person survival horror game. The game takes place in Colorado inside Mount Massive Asylum, which honestly seems a bit cliche, but Outlast delivers a classic horror experience which will definitely leave your heart pumping. You get to play as an independent journalist Miles Upshur who as a protagonist can only run or hide as there’s no fighting involved.
You can buy Outlast on Steam’s Halloween Sale for only 4$ USD.
5. The Evil Within
This is another great survival horror game with solid mechanics. Enemy design and AI behavior are top notch and will always keep players on their toes. The brilliant boss levels make the game standout and even seem inspired by enemies from Silent Hill.
The game has a 50% discount for the duration of the sale, selling for just 9.99$ USD. You can purchase it here.
Please note, the games aren’t in any specific order and we recommend each one of them. Steam will be running the sale from 29th November to October 1st. We will be happy to hear your top 5 list so feel free to mention them in the comments below.
