There’s nothing more unsettling than a person who can’t stop smiling. We Happy Few is set in a creepy dystopian version of 1960s England, where the population of the prodedurally generated town of Wellington Wells is lulled into obedience using a drug called Joy. You are part of Downer, a resistance movement that rejects Joy.

We’re afraid those cough pills won’t work this time! Set in an exquisitely beautiful sci-fi utopia, the first-person game P.A.M.E.L.A tasks you with exploring, and surviving, a city that has succumbed to a mysterious plague.

Allison Road

Release date: To be announced

Konami killed off P.T. and Silent Hills, so leave it to enterprising fans to come up with a spiritual successor: Allison Road. Like P.T., this first-person survival horror title strands you in the narrow corridors and lonely rooms of an otherwise nondescript home. As the night wears on, however, strange occurrences and creepy noises start rearing their ugly undead heads. Gameplay involves exploration and solving esoteric puzzles in an ever-evolving environment. So put on your adult diapers and embrace the horror, because this is going to be one long night!

DayZ

Release date: To be announced

Open world survival game DayZ puts all your undead survival theories to the test. Starting with the barest of necessities such as the clothes upon your back, you must scavenge for food and equipment, investigate possible sanctuaries such as apartments and barns, and cooperate with (or fight) other players. Aside from zombies, you also have to contend with real-life diseases, weather conditions, the complications associated with working with a group to fortify a base, and other challenges. Welcome to your new obsession.

Dead Island 2

Release date: To be announced

Set in the massive open worlds of sunny California, Dead Island 2 will have you killing various types of ghouls, from the shambling undead to those annoying sprinter-types that’ll chase you at full tilt upon seeing you. While you’ll get to empty gun cartridges on zombie hordes, the game will focus on melee combat. It’ll also feature an RPG-style level progression that’ll reward you with experience points for every quest resolved, which in turn will allow you to upgrade your skills.

Fortnite

Release date: To be announced

Ever wondered what would happen if we crossed Minecraft and Left 4 Dead? Fornite combines the creative aspects of the former with the survival horror and utter zombie madness of the latter. Sounds sweet to us! So get ready to build those fortifications, unless you want monsters gnawing on your lower intestine come nightfall!

Friday the 13th: The Game

Release date: To be announced

Ever wanted to stalk a bunch of dumb teenagers at a lakeside camp? Well, now you can with Friday the 13th: The Game. In this asymmetrical survival game, you play as either the infamous slasher, Jason Vorhees, himself, or you play as the camp counselors, who are a bunch of horror victim stereotypes such as the jock and the cheerleader. The counselors have to work together to kill the unrelenting undead murderer, while Jason has a bunch of creative ways to off his prey. Juicy!

H1Z1

Release date: To be announced

This MMO survival game set in a massive open-world infested with rotting, stinking undead. You’re one of thousands of players running around rural America trying to survive everything from zombies to the harshness of nature itself. And in H1Z1, you can’t trust everyone. Teamwork is great, sure; but dire situations such as the zombie apocalypse have the tendency to bring out the worst in everybody. Expect plenty of backstabbing and broken friendships!

The Long Dark

Release date: To be announced

Trapped in the freezing Canadian wilderness, you must learn to survive by scavenging, hunting, and crafting in The Long Dark. Other considerations include hunger, exhaustion, body temperature, natural dangers associated with wildlife and the environment, and more.  A truly fascinating and immersive experience. Just don’t forget to leave home without your parka – you don’t want your nose falling off from frostbite.

Kona: Day One

Release date: To be announced

Surviving in frigid conditions? Not as easy as it sounds, which you’ll soon find out in Kona: Day One. You play a private detective who goes to small village to meet a client – only to discover the entire area deserted. Did the harsh weather drive them off? Or is there something more sinister going on? The plot thickens!

Narcosis

Release date: To be announced

In Narcosis, you play an industrial diver who is stranded in the Pacific Ocean’s depths. With only a few tools and dwindling oxygen, you must find a way to surface before it’s too late. Let’s just hope there aren’t any sharks around. Suffocating is bad enough, but having a wild animal bite off your rear is one humiliating way to die.

Outlast II

Release date: To be announced

Little is known about Outlast II, except that it will take place in the same universe as its predecessor. We can assume the gameplay will bear significant similarities to the original game as well, meaning plenty of dark corridors, loads of heart-pounding hide and seek moments with murderous lunatics, and jump scares. Oh yes, lots and lots of jump scares.

Pathologic

Release date: To be announced

An isolated steppe community steeped in strange traditions is devastated by a plague. As any of three doctors – a man of science, a practitioner of the occult, and a deranged woman – you must sort out fact from superstition, and unravel the mystery of the evil that has befallen the town. You’ll also have to survive hunger, natural hazards, exhaustion, bandits, and the disease itself, which entails bartering with people, scavenging for various items, and more. A remake of a ruthless 2005 survival game from Russia.

Sheltered

Release date: To be announced

The post-apocalyptic existence is hard, but it’s even harder when you have your entire family to take care of. Though you’re protected from the nuclear fallout thanks to your underground bunker, there are challenges awaiting you, from hunger and the cold to the dangers outside of your home. Scavenge the wasteland for supplies, welcome other survivors into your fortress, and manage your family’s physical and mental well-being in this heartbreaking and unforgiving survival game.

The Solus Project

Release date: To be announced

In The Solus Project, you assume the role of an astronaut who finds himself alone on an alien planet after his space vessel crashes. You’ll have to survive everything from hunger and weather conditions to environmental perils.
