Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village is a survival horror game that takes place in the fictional town of Mulvey, Louisiana. This village has been taken over by mutated creatures and players must make their way through this zombie-filled world as Ethan Winters to find his kidnapped daughter Mia.

In GhostWire: Tokyo, players enter the world of Japanese folklore to explore a cursed village and save its inhabitants from impending death. The game is set in an abandoned town called Tama which has become overrun by evil spirits that have been unleashed following a series of mysterious murders. It’s up to you as Detective Yamane to investigate these murders and d solve the mystery behind it all.

#3 Dead By Daylight

In Dead by Daylight, up to four survivors are terrorized in the woods during a ritualistic murder. The killer hunts them down with one goal: sacrifice their bodies on hooks for “The Entity”. This is an immersive game where three of us play as the survivors and another person plays as the terrifying killer who stalks his prey mercilessly before attacking from behind.

A group of people experience horror while playing Dead By Daylight; they’re always trying not to get caught or killed because if you do it’s all over! You have only two ways out – either escape through closing gates that lead back into town (which can be difficult) or stun your pursuer long enough so he drops items like flares which allow you to see what lies ahead at night.

Tough decisions are made along the way that can change how you play both your friends and enemies forever!

Dying Light 2 takes place years after Dying light 1 left off. With zombies still roaming around our hero’s hometown of Harran City, we find out they’ve developed some sort of immunity to UV radiation which means all those hand sanitizer products aren’t going to work anymore so now there’s no stopping them.

#5 The Sinking City

The Sinking City is a detective game about fighting corruption. The player will experience an open world with spectacular visuals and immersive 3D gameplay, all while trying to save the city from being completely taken over by criminals.

The life of citizens in cities can be more perilous than anywhere else- especially if it’s underwater! In the new video game “Sinking City,” players take on the role of a private investigator – your job is to investigate crime scenes for clues that could lead you closer to solving crimes before they happen.

Returnal is an immersive, third-person shooter video game that provides the player with a unique understanding of what it feels like to be lost in space.

Set in a futuristic science fiction setting where you control Selene (Jane Perry), a stranded pilot armed with her suit and high-tech weapons who crawls through foreign environments battling extraterrestrial entities while trying desperately not to die over and over again for reasons unknown. Each death brings them closer to figuring out why they are experiencing these visions as well as their connection with this strange planet called Atropos.
