Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach
Developer: Steel Wool Studios
Platforms: PS4, PS5, PC
Release: December 2021
I remember when Five Nights At Freddy’s was just a small, independent game that got a lot of attention from YouTube videos. Now, after about a decade and thirteen games, the newest game in the series is Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach. In contrast to the other games, this one only has one free-roam night where you have to figure out how to get out of this strange mall. You even get help from your own animatronic, and there are many ways to finish the game.
Developer: The Farm 51
Publisher: The Farm 51
Platforms: PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC
Release: October 2019
The Exclusion Zone of Chernobyl is the setting for the science fiction survival horror RPG Chernobylite. There are all kinds of scary and creepy animals around here, and you have to figure out how to stay alive on your own. You COULD fight your way through the exclusion zone, but you could also look for supplies and try to get as much as you can so you can stay alive as long as you can. This survival horror stealth RPG gives you a lot of freedom.
Sekiro Shadows Die Twice
Platform: PS4, Xbox One, Stadia, PC
Release: March 2019
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a very hard but very fun stealth game where you play as a samurai who has to take on a lot of big bosses and find out what’s going on in this world. The story isn’t as easy to understand as it might seem at first, but to say more would ruin the surprise! One boss in this game made me gasp out loud, and after that, the game didn’t stop throwing things at me. This game is one of the best ever made.
Little Nightmares 2
Developer: Tarsier Studios
Publisher: Bandai Namco
Platforms: Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, Stadia
Release: February 2021
Little Nightmares II is a prequel to the first Little Nightmares game. It is a puzzle-platformer, a stealth game, and a horror game. It takes place in a 2.5D world full of scary creatures, platforming, and puzzles that are all meant to slow you down. But unlike the original game, you can actually use objects to fight back and fight enemies. You can also use stealth and darkness to avoid larger enemies on your journey. Even a PS5 and Xbox Series X version came out at the end of last year.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human
Platform: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, Switch
Release: February 4th 2022
The long-awaited sequel to 2015’s Dying Light, Dying Light 2: Stay Human is all about surviving in a strange world. You and your friends can play through the campaign together, fighting zombies and people who will do anything to get your supplies. Parkour is a big part of this game, just like it was in the first one. By using parkour to move around the map, you’ll be able to get out of danger faster and find a new place to hide from your enemies. Then there are the different infected, which you will have to move around carefully to avoid.
Styx: Shards of Darkness
Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
Release: March 14, 2017
Cyanide made the stealth-based video game Styx: Shards of Darkness. In this third part of the Of Orcs and Men series, players take on the role of Styx, the main character. Overall, the story goal of the game is to sneak into the Dark Elf city of Korangar to find out why dark elves and dwarves are now working together.
If you liked the previous Styx games, you’ll be happy to know that most of the game elements are back in this one. Styx will be able to make himself temporarily invisible, set up traps, and even clone himself to kill nearby enemies.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Developer: Crystal Dynamics
Publisher: Square Enix
Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
Release: September 14, 2018
When Tomb Raider got its big reboot back in 2013, the series got a huge boost, and new and old players alike enjoyed Lara Croft’s latest big adventure. Rise of the Tomb Raider, the sequel to Tomb Raider, came out in 2015. Like the reboot, it was a big hit.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the latest big game in the series, and gamers can now play it. The video game will take place after Rise of the Tomb Raider, in which Lara Croft goes looking for a Mayan relic that has something to do with her late father. During the expedition, however, Lara accidentally starts a Mayan end of the world, which forces her to save the world.
Dishonored is a first-person action game that puts you in the role of a supernatural killer who wants revenge. With Dishonored’s flexible combat system, you can think of creative ways to kill your enemies by using the supernatural powers, weapons, and weird gadgets you have access to.
Aragami is a third-person stealth game where you play as an undead assassin who can use the shadows to kill people. Find out a story about twin souls who are linked by a fate that goes beyond time and memory. In Aragami: Nightfall, shadow assassins Hyo and Shinobu go after the mysterious “Alchemist” on one last mission to bring back a long-lost friend. Play as Hyo and Shinobu and use new Shadow Powers in a story campaign that will test your stealth skills.
