  • Platforms: PC, PS4 ,XB1
  • Release: March 30, 2018.

Within Agony, players start their journey as a tormented soul in the depths of hell. As the protagonist goes through hell in search of a means to escape, players will have a unique ability to control people on your path along with possessing simple minded demons.



Scorn
  • Developer: Ebb Software
  • Publisher: Ebb Software
  • Platforms:  PC
  • Release: 2018

The horror title Scorn is all about immersion with the video game tossing players into a creepy atmospheric world that’s filled with grotesque creatures. One of the ways that Ebb Software is hoping to immerse players into this nightmarish world is by playing the entire game without any cutscenes. In fact, according to the past Kickstarter campaign page, Scorn doesn’t have a conventional plot but instead allows players to interpret the events and themes.

Another interesting aspect that will hopefully allow players to go through Scorn without being taken out of the gameplay experience is that the title will not have a HUD displays. Everything within the world is living and as players progress through the game, new areas will open up, however, don’t expect Scorn to hold your hand. You’ll have to think carefully about how to complete tasks and accomplish game goals.


Allison Road
  • Developer: Far From Home
  • Publisher: Far From Home
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: 2018

Allison Road gained attention from the video game industry as a spiritual successor to P.T., the playable teaser for the now cancelled video game Silent Hills. While first being declared cancelled on June 4, 2016, the video game would enter development once again on August 22, 2016.

Gameplay is similar to P.T., where players will go through the game in a first-person perspective as they uncover clues and defeat a supernatural entity. As for the overall story, developers are keeping gamers mostly guessing as to what they can expect.

From what we know so far, the game will have players taking on the role of an unnamed protagonist as he roams around his home with suggestions that his family was a victim of a heinous crime. As the game progresses, players will have to fight against an unknown force that could very well be his family from the afterlife.


Hunt: Showdown
  • Developer: Cryek
  • Publisher: Crytek
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: 2018

From development team Crytek comes Hunt: Showdown. Acting as a spiritual successor to Darksiders, Hunt: Showdown has players facing each other in a PvP bounty hunting video game. However, the spin on this title is that the setting takes place in a rural nightmarish Louisiana swampland.

Not only will you be hunting or being hunted by other players, you’ll have to be careful of your surroundings for the lurking monsters.


Moons of Madness
  • Developer: Rock Pocket Games
  • Publisher: Rock Pocket Games
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: 2018

Within Moons of Madness, players take on the role of an astronaut named Shane Newart who begins to battle hallucinations. Throughout the game, players will be tasked with exploring a research station called Trailblazer Alpha while solving puzzles in an attempt to solve the supernatural elements that seem to be surrounding the astronaut.

Unfortunately, there’s no set release date attached to the video game quite yet other than an expected release sometime in 2018.


Resident Evil 2 Remake
  • Developer: Capcom
  • Publisher: Capcom
  • Platforms: TBA
  • Release: 2018

Much like the first installment of the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil 2 will soon receive its own full HD remake. The video game doesn’t have too many details out as if we’ll see any specific changes from the original Resident Evil 2 video game that launched back in 1998.

However, one thing is for sure, this is a remake built from the ground up rather than a remastered edition. Unfortunately, there’s no release date or specific platforms announced for the video game though it’s likely the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms will be receiving the title. What’s uncertain is if we’ll also see the Nintendo Switch will potentially also receive a port of the game.

In the past, when Capcom went back to bring out a new release of the original Resident Evil title, they introduced a new zombie variant known as the Crimson Head. Info is scarce for this upcoming remake for Resident Evil 2, but it would be interesting to see if they also alter some of the zombies players will come across in the game.
