Just signed up for Xbox Game Pass but not sure what to install first? Here are 5 essential horror games for horror.
For many, Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass is truly the most comprehensive gaming subscription available today. Even today, the service is constantly evolving and offers titles all more qualitative than the others for only ten euros per month. It is therefore normal that you have cracked.
However, subscribing is one thing, but knowing what to download is another. With the 450 games available in the Xbox Game Pass catalog, you can quickly feel overwhelmed and not know what to turn to first, especially if you’re a casual gamer. Here is a short guide to help you navigate through the catalog.
If for you video games rhyme story of ghosts, zombies and other supernatural phenomena, we invite you to discover our top 5 horror games available on Xbox Game Pass. Depending on arrivals and departures, this file will be regularly updated in order to update our suggestions. Come back to see us as often as necessary!
Resident Evil 7
We start strong with a size in the field of horror. No need to introduce the franchise resident Evil which has been worrying gamers for many years now. But if you listen to fans of the genre, the seventh installment is truly one of the scariest. So unbearable that many did not hold their controller to the end. At your peril.
The Evil Within 2
Sequel to the first game The Evil Within, this opus follows the adventures of Sebastian Castellanos who wants to find his daughter. To do this, he will have to return to STEM, a world populated by creatures as hideous as they are frightening. If this survival horror is so formidable, it’s probably because it was designed by the creator of resident Evil. A must have on your Xbox.
Back 4 Blood
Very recently released Back 4 Blood caused a stir with its ambitious story and intense zombie battles. Apart from its very long lifespan, the game has many tricks up its sleeve that make us love zombie games more.
Dead by Daylight
Playing a horror game doesn’t necessarily mean doing it alone. Dead by Daylight is the perfect title for those who want company while being chased by a serial killer. If that’s your thing, you can also play as this killer and hunt down your targets one by one while supplies last. All in a scary atmosphere that makes you jump at the slightest noise.
We end with a more narrative game in which you play as a medium, who has the ability to cross the borders of the world of the dead. Between phantom spirits and time for reflection, The Medium is a title that will hypnotize you as much by its story as its disturbing visual atmosphere.
And much more
