As today is Halloween we’ve decided to pick out some scary games to play this evening.

This year more games than ever seem to be trying to get in on the Halloween action. There’s everything from Halloween events to themed levels, characters and icons. Yesterday we picked out our favourite games with Halloween events this year.

For players looking for something a little more scary this Halloween we’ve picked out some suggestions, including a few new games you might not have heard of, below:

Call of Duty: Zombies

PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3

Even if you don’t buy ever single Call of Duty release, chances are you’ll have at least one copy with a Zombies mode. Group up with friends for endless zombie slaying co-op fun this Halloween.

A third of your group have been infected with a virus, but who will escape? Deceit is available now on Steam Early Access.


Resident Evil: Revelations 2

A fantastic choice for players looking for some scary co-op fun. Set over 4 chapters players must work together to survive.

White Noise 2


White Noise 2 is an asymmetrical 4v1 horror game in which players cooperate as a team of investigators, or play the role of the creature that is hunting them. White Noise 2 is available now on Steam Early Access.




Not a full game but a playable teaser. Sadly the game has been cancelled and the demo is no longer available to download. If you do still have it on your PS4 it’s a great choice for Halloween, especially if you have friends round who haven’t experienced it before. A very unsettling experience.


Five Night’s at Freddy’s Series

PC, iOS, Android

Players work as a security guard where they need to monitor security cameras at various locations. When you’re not looking things get strange and there are plenty of jump scares.

Alien: Isolation

Every fancied playing hide and seek with an Alien? In Alien: Isolation players must use stealth in order to survive. Full of tension and rather frightening.
