As a fellow horror enthusiast, I have some exciting news to share about upcoming titles. Several games are set to release this year, and while there may be some changes, as of writing, the following information is accurate. For instance, Choo Choo Charles, previously available only on PC, will be ported to consoles. Additionally, Greyhill Incident and Stray Souls have received recent updates. While an alpha gameplay video for Stray Souls was released last year, the publishers have indicated that the final version will differ significantly.
If you’re a fan of found footage-style horror, then you’ll want to check out Paranormal Tales, a game that promises to deliver just that. IGN recently posted a trailer for the game, which showcases some early alpha gameplay that’s heavily inspired by PT. According to the game’s description, it’s a “next-gen horror game” that draws inspiration from PT. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like Paranormal Tales will be available on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One; currently, it’s only set to release on PC. However, you can add the game to your Steam wish list now.
What We Know About Paranormal Tales
From Steam we see a series of tragic tales we have to experience.
- MULTIPLE FOUND FOOTAGE SCENARIOS – The Horror Cam archives committee has obtained various video files. Each file is a self-contained experience where you playthrough what happened to the people who have recorded these files.
- FOUND FOOTAGE GAMEPLAY – Experience horror from the perspective of bodycams, phones, and VHS cameras, including auditory and visual effects, to complete the immersion.
- EXPLORATION – Explore various unique locations that tell vastly different stories for the player to experience.
- HYPER-REALISTIC ENVIRONMENTS – The game is developed with a sense of hyper-realism to create a visually stunning and memorable experience powered by Unreal Engine 5.
So the alpha gameplay trailer closes by asking if we have what it takes to play through the end of the footage?” We are told to also expect jump scares, nervous breakdowns, anxiety and maybe spiders. We also have the official trailer below which says quite a lot about what we can face when the game launches.
Though as always with all news we love hearing from you. So why not get in touch and share those views?
