Scary Games You Can Play While Waiting For The Quarry to Release

Supermassive Games’ next big horror game, The Quarry, is coming right around the corner, set for a release on the 10th of June. But if you just can’t wait to sink your teeth into some fantastic horror titles, allow me to point you towards a handful of my own favourites.

The Dark Pictures Anthology - Triple Pack

From the same developer bringing you The Quarry next month, The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of smaller — but no less frightening — stories that explore a variety of scares. Each of the three titles in the Triple Pack are specially curated to provide a standalone cinematic experience. Whether you’d like to explore a ghostly mystery at sea during a diving trip gone wrong, escape colonial witch trials and their victims in the modern day, or team up with enemy soldiers to fight back against horrifying creatures in a buried temple, this Triple Pack will have your back. If you’d rather experience something on a similar scale to The Quarry and own a PlayStation 4, you could also check out Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn, where a group of friends must survive the night against a mysterious figure and other creatures that live on a snowy mountaintop.

Resident Evil 2

If you’d rather have something with a bit more action, consider CAPCOM’s Resident Evil 2. This 2019 remake of the original PlayStation classic looks absolutely beautiful, even when it’s shoving zombie after zombie in your face. Explore Raccoon City, its Police Station, and other areas as you help Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy uncover the truth behind an outbreak of the undead. If you like puzzles and managing a small pool of resources, this title is the one for you. And, if you get a kick out of Resident Evil 2, there are plenty of other fantastic games in this series.

Call of Cthulhu

But what if you’re in the mood for an RPG? Cyanide Studio has you covered with Call of Cthulhu. Based on the classic tabletop RPG of the same name, this title sees you controlling one Private Investigator Pierce as he delves deeper and deeper into cosmic psychological horror in order to solve a murder on a chilly isolated island. Can you maintain your sanity long enough to stop the killer?

The Walking Dead

Last on our list is Telltale’s undisputed 2012 classic, The Walking Dead. Based on the best-selling comic book series of the same name, this five-episode game sees the player in the role of Lee Everett, a convict who is thrust into the undead apocalypse on the way to prison. With the world of the dead bringing him a second chance at life, can he protect a young girl who’s just lost her parents? If this title really winds up speaking to you as well, keep in mind that this is only the start of a four-part series!

Hopefully these will keep you entertained until The Quarry arrives on 10th of June!
