The graphical prowess of current gen consoles has vastly improved and you can be sure to squirm in delight when the haunting monsters come rushing or eerily walk slowly towards you.
Here are the best PS4 horror video games so far this 2015:
“Only your choices determine who will survive.”
Until Dawn is story-driven game filled with point and click gameplay and QTEs largely like Quantic Dream?s Heavy Rain or Telltale Games? The Walking Dead.
Until Dawn is delightfully a campy and scary game filled with horror tropes. The story revolves on a group of teenagers celebrating the one year anniversary of their friends? disappearance in the snowy cabin in the woods. Like slasher movies, the victimized teenagers stray away from the group when they should be sticking together and there are scenes where your character only wears a bathrobe while running away from a monster.
Famous personalities such as Hayden Panattiere (Heroes) and Peter Stormare (Fargo) has lent their vocal talents for the game and they did an exceptional performance towards making the game truly feel like an interactive movie. The graphics also looks exceptional and the game employs cramped and scary angles like in the olden Resident Evil Games. The music exceptionally sets the creepy tension of the game and you can be sure to scream or jump from your set when jump-scares come your way. You can know more about Until Dawn here.
