Welcome, fellow horror game enthusiasts, to your (semi)-regular Saturday morning roundup of all the week’s horror gaming news! If, like us, you enjoy nothing more than starting (or perhaps ending) the weekend with a fine selection of digitised and live action gore, then you’re in luck, as this week has seen no shortage of either. Resident Evil remains firmly in the spot light with HD remakes and new chapters (not to mention the RE sale currently doing the rounds) reminding us why we used to enjoy the franchise. Hektor surprises PC gamers by slipping out of the shadows and screaming “you don’t always have to wait an age for a newly announced horror game to be released” into our disbelieving faces. The rather popular Silent Hill P.T. has been transformed into a “found footage” horror film by folks with far more talent than we’ll ever have, Sunless Sea launches, NightCry spits out in-game footage, Evolve goes all live action and Rebellion unleash a zombie army. That and there’s a short infomercial that serves to remind why Kholat promises to be one of the year’s best entries into our beloved genre. Enjoy!
Resident Evil Revelations 2 - Raid Mode rundown
Producer Michiteru Okabe swings by the Capcom Unity stream station to give us the lowdown on Raid Mode. We get our first look at the mode's updates, maps and characters, plus take the mode for a spin.
*Note: During the conversation, it's said that both Hunk and Wesker are part of the Complete Season pack. While Complete Season does contain Hunk for Raid Mode, Wesker is available in the retail disc OR as separate DLC, not in the Complete Season.
