The top 5 most anticipated horror games of 2010
2010 is here and we are looking into a tasteful year for survival horror and horror themed games.
Here are the probably most anticipated horror games of 2010:
5. Metro 2033
This horror themed first person shooter is being developed in Kiew, even consisting of ex GSC Gameworld members. GSC Gameworld is responsible for the popular Stalker series. Unlike Stalker, Metro 2033 is no open-world shooter but has a strong focus on the story, which is based on Dmitry Glukhovskys book which is also entitled Metro 2033. The game lives off its eerie athmosphere and the developers have included even the most minor detail to make this a gruesome experience to the player.
Metro 2033 is coming out in March 2010 for PC and Xbox360. Watch the first trailer below:
4. Bioshock 2
Number 4 in our list is reserved for Irrational Games’ Bioshock 2. The sequel to the popular underwater horror shooter will again frighten player due to its authentic environment and great audio and visuals.
Bioshock 2 is coming out on February 9th 2010 for Xbox360, PS3 and PC. Watch the latest trailer below:
3. Heavy Rain
Heavy Rain is said to be a psychological thriller with an evolving story. Choices and actions can result in dramatic consequences for the story. Heavy Rain will also feature a unique control sheme and many context sensitive actions.
Heavy Rain is coming out in February 2010 for PS3. Watch the latest trailer below:
2. Alan Wake
2010 will finally be the year when Alan Wake hits store shelves. The much anticipated psycho-thriller which is in development for a few years now is shaping up to be one of the top titles in 2010 even looking outside of the horror genre. Alan Wake is set up in episodes, much like popular TV series do it to generate extra tension. The creators of Max Payne plan to serve one of the best stories in videogame history alongside its strong technical part.
Alan Wake is coming out in May 2010 for Xbox360 and shortly after on PC. Watch the latest trailer below:
1. Dead Space 2
One of the most frightening games of all time is getting a well deserved sequel! I have to admit that it was a close one between Alan Wake and Dead Space 2 as to which game will be on top of our list. Dead Space 2 is a game purely focused on horror and survival, even if the developers Visceral Games have stated that they plan to balance out the real gruesome events with a bit more action. Sadly there’s no trailer available yet, we still believe Dead Space 2 will be one of the most important releases in 2010. EA’s plan to open the series to a wider audience hopefully will also help to get higher sales figures, seing the financial failure of Dead Space Extraction on the Wii.
Dead Space 2 will most likely be released in Fall 2010. Watch some images and magazine scans below:
