Xbox and Bethesda 2022 Showcase Horror Roundup

While E3 may be on hold for the time being, game developers aren’t letting that stop them from showing off their shiny new trailers. On June 12th, Xbox and Bethesda unveiled a ton of new gameplay sneak peeks, cinematic trailers, and release date announcements, the vast majority of which will be available on Xbox Game Pass Day One. We’ve rounded up all the horror titles featured so let’s get into it!

Bethesda and Arcane Austin’s upcoming open-world co-op FPS Redfall received an extended gameplay trailer, with characters battling vampires with abilities like shields and powerful weapons. Set in a post-apocalyptic world with some big Left 4 Dead vibes, it’s sure to turn some heads.

The highly anticipated sequel A Plague Tale: Requiem showed off some new gameplay, with both stealth and combat, not to mention the horrible swarms of rats! It promises to be just as emotional and gruesome as the first.

The H.R Giger-inspired nightmare survival horror title Scorn finally has a release date: October 21st, 2022. Flesh guns, body horror, and grime are front and center. I’ve been looking forward to this one for years!

The Last Case of Benedict Fox is a Metroidvania that oozes H.P Lovecraft. Take down demonic foes while traversing a stylish puzzle platform full world. Developer Plot Twist promises an “engaging and emotional” experience!

Blizzard’s Diablo IV is coming to Xbox and with it the 5th and final player class: The Necromancer. This cinematic trailer is just vibes with a menacing bone-clad woman leading a squad of skeletons with iconic sinister blue flame magic. Couch co-op for Xbox as well as cross-play co-op and PvP between Xbox and PC were confirmed. A separate gameplay video was also showcased.

While no specific details were given, Hideo Kojima and Xbox have partnered to create a video game “…like no one has ever experienced before, leveraging the cloud.” Recently, Norman Reedus spilled the beans on a Death Stranding sequel—but Kojima has always been known for flipping the script, so this could be something completely different!
