Alien: Fireteam Elite

Above all multiplayer oriented, the title allows you to discover the story of three soldiers who go to Katanga, an abandoned orbital refinery, to evacuate a scientist from the Weyland-Yutani company.

On the gameplay side, several weapons are available such as the assault rifle or the flamethrower, but also classes with very specific roles such as the demolisher, the technician, the doctor or the scout.

Finally, if the experience focuses on the extermination of Xenomorphs, the bestiary quickly becomes very varied, which makes Alien: Fireteam Elite all the more enjoyable to play.

Dead by Daylight

Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer game released in 2016 and developed by Behavior Interactive Inc. In four-on-one games, the title allows you to embody a serial killer who seeks to decimate the group of survivors while the other participants must escape at all costs.

To achieve their goal, they must repair five generators scattered around the map that power the exit doors, or find a hidden trapdoor. Each character has their own skills that influence the strategy to adopt while each role has a specific gameplay.

Finally, note that this edition only gives you access to a total of 7 killers and 9 survivors as well as accessories.

Dying Light 2

In Dying Light 2 : Stay Human, the player finds himself in a world filled with zombies and in which he will have to rely on the help of other survivors to get out of it. While the scenario plays a central role in this second episode, you must regularly make choices that can have serious consequences for the rest of the adventure.

As usual in the Dying Light franchise, the title offers an open world and lets the player jump from roof to roof thanks to his character’s impressive physical abilities to go and massacre infected.

Throughout your exploration, you must also adapt your way of playing according to the day-cycle. Skills are another important part of the experience as they improve one’s abilities in parkour and combat.

The Dark Pictures : House of Ashes

As indicated by his name, The Dark Pictures : House of Ashes is the third game in The Dark Picture Anthology series. This time, the scenario takes place in 2003 in the midst of the Iraq war. As US Special Forces search for weapons of mass destruction, supernatural creatures awaken in the desert of Saudi Arabia.

Just like in the other opuses, the player follows the adventures of a group of characters who are trying to survive. For this, each choice can have serious consequences, which requires managing everyone’s feelings well in order to carry out the exploration phases.

Maid of Sker

Inspired by novels Houses of Sker, Maid of Sker is a first-person survival horror set in 1898 in a remote and disturbing hotel in Britain. In this experience where a large part of the gameplay is focused on noise, we follow the wanderings of Thomas Evans, a musician who tries to save the woman he loves. So you have to be careful because every move can attract the attention of enemies.

This sometimes requires having to hold your character’s breath or even avoid hitting the furniture to remain discreet. In all of this, your only weapon is some sort of orb that produces a chant that can deafen your pursuers. To make matters worse, you’re also being chased by Abraham, a creepy AI-controlled being who can follow you wherever you go.

Martha is dead

Martha is Dead is a first-person thriller developed by Wired Productions. In 1944, as the conflict between Germany and the Allies raged, a granddaughter of a German soldier found the body of a drowned woman in Tuscany.

In a universe mixing historical reality, superstitions and folklore, the challenge is to discover the consequences of this death.

Be careful though, the warning at the start of the game pretty much sums up the overall mood of the title: “Not recommended for players who may be bothered by artwork containing blood, dismemberment, disfigurement of human bodies, minor nudity and acts of self-harm”. To be reserved for an informed public.

Resident Evil Village

Because Resident Evil Village is the direct sequel to Resident Evil VII, it is better to have played the latter to understand all the challenges of this opus. In this new horrific adventure, we find Ethan now living peacefully with his wife and daughter Rose.

Unfortunately, while she is kidnapped for an unknown reason, Ethan wakes up some time later, completely lost in a strange village, ruled by the terrifying Mother Miranda. As in the previous episode, there is first-person gameplay, but this time in slightly larger areas to explore.

If Village is less frightening than other titles in the Resident Evil franchise, it’s because it leaves room for gameplay that relies heavily on weapons that allow you to overcome the well-filled bestiary that awaits you. What give more interesting fights.
