These 13 new video games are great for Halloween. There is something for everyone, regardless of whether you enjoy jump scares or eerie atmospheres or multiplayer murder.

  • The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan (2019)

Man of Medan is the place for you if you have ever shouted at the idiots in horror movies. In this serious, grim story, you make decisions that will have real consequences for the characters. Playing co-op is a great way to have fun. You can make choices that will either help or hurt your neighbor, but they also have the option of doing the same.

Can play on: Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

  • Edith Finch: What is Left? (2017)

Although not strictly a horror title, Edith Finch’s interconnected narratives about strange deaths and family secrets often veer into the surreal and horrifying to great effect. It is story-driven, thoughtful and unlike any other game. This is a great game for fans of high-stakes horror.

Can play on: PlayStation 4, iOS, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One

  • Dead by Daylight (2016)

There are many asymmetrical multi-player games, but this one is the best. Dead by Daylight plays like a slasher film. One player is the killer and everyone else is a potential victim. The game is completely different depending on the role you play, but both versions are great.

Can play on: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, iOS, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, Android

  • Friday, the 13th: The Game

Who hasn’t dreamed about being Jason Voorhees, and annoying camp counselors? Friday the 13th: The Game offers you that chance. It is a homage to Dead by Daylight, an older asymmetrical slasher video game. However, it is far from a poor copy. F13 has a lighter tone and more victims than the original movie series. There are also tons of Easter eggs for those who love the classic movie series.

Can play on: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows

  • The Medium (2021)

This innovative horror game features Marianne as a psychic who is able to see both the “real” and spirit realms. Split-screen sections that allow you to control your character in Poland circa 1999 or the World of the Dead offer intriguing gameplay and narrative possibilities.

Can play on: Xbox Series X, Series S, and Xbox Series 5.

  • Mundaun (2021)

Mundaun is all horror and suspense. This indie horror game, set in a haunted village of the Alps, and illustrated with pencil drawings, is unique in its disquietingness. It’s reminiscent of The Lighthouse or Wicker Man.

Can play on: Microsoft Windows 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Series S, and Mac OS

  • Outlast 2 (2017)

Outlast 2 is an out-of-power fantasy, while most video games are power-fantasies. It is impossible to get more guns to kill bigger monsters. You can just run away from the evils that want to kill you. Although it isn’t as impactful and focused as Outlast, this sequel will still scare you, especially if your favorite genres include messed up stories and hiding from terror.

Can play on: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch

  • Stories Untold (2017)

A dreadful tale told through four connected mini-stories, Stories Untold does the seemingly impossible: It brings text adventures back from the dead and makes them Stranger-Things-cool. This game is best played on a PC (typing with a controller is not fun), but it’s worth the effort if you’re patient.

Can play on: Microsoft Windows 4, macOS, Mac OS, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One

  • A Plague Tale: Innocence (2019)

This stealth-horror video is set in plague-ravaged France, 1348. It tells the fascinating story of Hugo and Amicia, two children of nobility, who are on the run from the Inquisition and legions black-death-infected rats. A Plague Tale is Innocence is a narrative-driven horror genre that doesn’t rely on the usual tropes.

Can play on: PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X, Series S, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows, Amazon Luna

  • Resident Evil Village (2021)

Resident Evil Village is one of the most beloved games in this long-running franchise. It places you in the middle of a haunted town and presents you with a rogue’s gallery of villains such as Donna Beneviento (her living doll), the half-man, half fish abomination Salvatore Moreau and Lady Dimitrescu, the tall and unforgettable Vampire genius who stole the internet’s hearts.

Can play on: Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X, Series S, Microsoft Windows, Google Stadia

  • The Evil Within 2 (2017)

If you like everything-but-the-kitchen-sink horror, The Evil Within 2 is for you: The monsters, story, and setting are just bat-crap crazy. Open-world design encourages exploration of the haunted STEM universe (an alternate reality with monsters real), and boss fights, unlike the original Evil Within are a highlight rather than a frustrating mess.

Can play on: Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

  • Little Nightmares 2 (2021)

Little Nightmares 2 is a perfect mix of horror, puzzles and platforms. Little Nightmares 2 is not only engaging in the levels and obstacles, but it also shines in the creepy details. Each aspect of the design, from the corner of the map to the most terrifying boss, has been carefully thought out for extreme creepiness.

Can play on: Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X, Series S, Microsoft Windows, Google Stadia

  • Phasmophobia (2020)

The immersive online horror game was born last Halloween. It quickly took over Twitch and the online space. This is a ghost-hunting adventure where you will explore creepy places, find clues and jump out of your skin if a ghost finds them. It’s a great game to play with friends.

Can play on: Microsoft Windows
