Resident Evil 2

  • Developer: Capcom
  • Publisher: Capcom
  • Platforms: PC, XBO, PS4
  • Release: January 25, 2019

Resident Evil 2 will soon receive a remake much like how Capcom handled the remakes for the original Resident Evil title. We’ve known about the remake for quite awhile but it wasn’t until E3 2018 that Capcom was ready to unveil the trailer and gameplay for the upcoming release.

It seems that this remake will retain the same overall narrative journey that the original title held. However, outside of the incredible visual overhaul, the development team did make some slight changes, for instance, the cameras have been tweaked. Instead of stuck camera visuals, players will be able to use an over-the-shoulder style camera that will help players get up close to the horrors that will be coming their way.


Days Gone

  • Developer: SIE Bend Studio
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: 2019

Days Gone is the upcoming video game being developed by SIE Bend Studio that was originally slated to be released in 2018. Now the game is set to launch in early 2019 where players will be tossed into a post-apocalyptic world in which humanity is suffering from mindless zombie-like creatures.

Within the game, players will be taking on the role of a Deacon St. John who was once a bounty hunter. However, now that the world has been completely turned upside-down, Deacon will have to use his bounty hunter skills to keep him alive on a daily basis.


The Blackout Club

  • Developer: Question
  • Publisher: Question
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

The Blackout Club is centered around a mystery. Teenagers from a small town have started to blackout and wake up randomly at a different location with no knowledge as to what had happened. This occurrence becomes a normal situation that the teens must deal with until they band together and figure out just what is going on.

This is a co-op style video game in which players can team up and carefully execute their plans to find out the reason for the blackouts and gather proof in order to share with police and parents. Currently, the video game is slated to launch at some point in 2019.


Someday you’ll return

  • Developer: CBE Software
  • Publisher: CBE Software
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: 2019

Someday You’ll Return is an upcoming psychological horror game that puts players deep into the woods in search of your missing daughter. Within the game, our protagonist has vowed to never return to these woods, but now to seek out your daughter’s safe return, you must venture into the unknown once again.

This seems to be a deep narrative journey as well which will give players plenty of mature themes to go through. As you venture deeper into the woods you’ll uncover deep dark secrets along with fatherhood concepts and past incidents.


Man of Medan

  • Developer: Supermassive Games
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Supermassive Games has already a nice track record when it comes to horror titles as the development studio brought out an iconic hit for the PlayStation 4 in the form of Until Dawn. The video game series has received a couple spinoff titles of its own though now the developers are looking at a new trilogy of titles set to also be horror titles.

The developers are calling it The Dark Anthology with the first title being Man of Medan. So far we know that the game will feature a cast of characters that, much like Until Dawn, can all be killed. This time around players will be diving into the sea with a group of friends in search of sunken treasure but it turns out that there’s something else lurking in the depths below.

We’re keeping tabs on this game for any news related to the title though so far we only have one trailer and a release window of sometime in 2019.
