Top 10 New Horror Games Of 2020

2020 will have plenty of horror video games for you to enjoy and already have a list of some of the best slated to launch in the coming year. You’ll want to bookmark this list as we’ll continue to update it with brand new video game announcements and updates. For now, you can check out some of our most anticipated horror games releasing into the upcoming year.

#10 The Dark Pictures Anthology
  • Developer: Supermassive Games
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

From Supermassive Games, the developers behind Until Dawn comes a new collection of horror titles. The collection is known as The Dark Pictures Anthology and it will have a few video game titles that will play similar to Until Dawn. Right now we only know of the first installment which is Man of Medan that has already released into the market, but future installments are in development. Unfortunately, right now we only got a small teaser to showcase the next game title known as Little Hope but more information on the game should be coming soon.

#9 Maid of Sker

  • Developer: Wales Interactive
  • Publisher: Wales Interactive
  • Platforms: PS4, NS, XBO, PC
  • Release: July 28, 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

There are plenty of video game titles out there that take on folklore, especially the horror genre. That’s exactly the case for Maid Sker, a game that is based around British folklore. If you’re familiar with the Elisabeth Williams folklore then this game is based around that tale. Players are tossed in a first-person survival horror game that’s set in a remote hotel. With these massive beings featuring a bagged mask, players are forced to make their way around the world without giving off too much noise. In fact, these hostile enemies can even hear your breathing so you’ll need to hold your breath at times. However, you will have some weapons available to get by which includes a sound-emitting weapon that can be tossed into an area in order to make your escape.

#8 Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PS4, XBO, PC
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online 3 Players
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

It looks like the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six series is about to dive a bit into some horror. The video game we’re referring to is the upcoming Rainbow Six Quarantine, a title that was first unveiled during E3 2019. Ubisoft only offered viewers around the world a small teaser of this game, but it was enough to get plenty of people excited for the upcoming installment. Set in the future where an alien parasite has struck Earth, innocent humans are starting to turn into mindless creatures. Players take on the role of an elite soldier sent to likely not only take out these threats but find a means for a cure.

This is still a cooperative style video game with players working together in teams with the overall game being a PvE with chaos and unpredictable moments according to Ubisoft. We’re still, of course, waiting for more information to come out for this game but a good comparison users are making for this game is the limited Operation Chimera game mode that was featured in Rainbow Six Siege. Likewise, for now, all we have is a 2020 release window for current-generation platforms.

#7 Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise

  • Developer: Toyboy Inc.
  • Publisher: Rising Star Games
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: July 10, 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

While Deadly Premonition may not have the name recognition to the likes of Resident Evil or Silent Hill, it’s still an IP that has a strong following. Released back in 2010, players found quite a bit of charm in this survival horror game in which acted similar to the works of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. In this game, players take the role of FBI Special Agent, Francis York, who is sent to a small town in hopes of solving a serial murder case. However, as Special Agent York ventures into the town, he finds some supernatural elements that have him in his most bizarre case yet.

Now ten years later we got a sequel coming out for the Nintendo Switch. Known as Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise, players will once again get tossed into the shoes of Francis York who is once again taken to a small town which features an unusual murder case. Set in Le Carre, players will speak with the cast of characters that inhabit the area and hopefully solve the murder case with his friend Zach. Little details have released about the game and what footage has released seems quite cryptic just like the first installment.

#6 Devotion

  • Developer: Red Candle Games
  • Publisher: Red Candle Games
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: TBA (February 19, 2019 initial release)
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Devotion is a first-person perspective horror title that follows a man who finds his apartment slowly shifting into an alternate time. This place that was once called home is now finding the past budding its head out. A family that lived within the place prior which was deeply rooted in their religious beliefs becomes a horrific nightmare for protagonist trapped in this new hellish world. Designed to showcase Taiwanese and East Asian folklore, gamers can set aside a day to dwell into the terror RedCandleGames has developed.

Now, unfortunately, Devotion at the moment has been pulled from Steam due to some controversy dealing with artwork and the Chinese government. So while this game technically released already, the game has since been removed. Currently, the developers do not have a date in mind on when Devotion will once again be released into the market, but we’re hoping that we may see it at some point in 2020.
