Today is Halloween. A fantastic time to enjoy some of the best games in the horror genre thanks to the Shocktober sale that Microsoft has prepared in it’s store with Xbox One and Xbox 360 games at prices of authentic demolition.
In this selection of games that Microsoft has prepared to spend Halloween in a house enjoying a good horror game. We can find games of all kinds and for all budgets. We have great productions like DOOM Eternal, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Resident Evil 3 Remake or Borderlands 3. There are also a large number of more modest or older titles, which are a great choice due to their enormous quality.
On this occasion, we are going to show you five games for less than $5 that we personally recommend. This selection is for people who want to spend a great Halloween without spending too much money.
For only $ 2.99, Amnesia: Collection is one of the most recommended options in the sale catalog to spend a great Halloween evening without spending just money. This collection includes the three titles in the series released to date. These are Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs and Amnesia: Justine. First-person horror titles with a really interesting setting. Three different proposals that will make fans of the horror genre fall in love.
You can buy Amnesia: Collection for $2.99 from the Microsoft Store.
Outlast: Bundle Of Terror
Outlast: Bundle of Terror is, without a doubt, one of the clear choices we had when it came to making this list of recommendations. Not only because it was a first-person horror game that revolutionized, in it’s own way, the genre because of that first-person proposal with the camera in hand and the option to see with night vision in the dark, also because this pack includes both the game base, like its expansion, Whistleblower, for less than five dollars. Specifically, $4.99.
You can buy Outlast: Bundle of Terror for $4.99 from the Microsoft Store.
Metro 2033 Redux
Metro 2033 Redux is another of those classics that can’t be missing in this list. Technically this one isn’t a horror game itself. Although you will be with me in that the depressing and suffocating atmosphere of the tunnels of the Moscow metro are the perfect setting for a story of radiation, mutant creatures, political intrigue and paranormal elements. A first-person shooter with a lot of personality for only $ 4.99. Like its sequel, Metro Last Light.
You can buy Metro 2033 Redux for $4.99 from the Microsoft Store.
Little Nightmares is one of those games that we couldn’t pass up either. Not only for it’s incredible price of $ 4.99, but because it is, possibly, one of the best games in the entire catalog on the Shocktober sale. This suffocating adventure and platform proposal manages to freeze your blood without even a word. All thanks to the disturbing setting in which the game takes place. A ship at sea with misshapen monsters that seem to have a special liking for children. The mission: escape.
You can buy Little Nightmares for $4.99 from the Microsoft Store.
We couldn’t close this list without naming Dead Space, a backward-compatible Xbox 360 game. Dead Space is probably one of the great kings of the horror genre of recent years. A third-person shooter with a space setting aboard the USG Ishimura where we will have to face the necromorphs. As you can see in the image, the place has not only gone to hell, but the setting is the most oppressive and visceral of the genre, thank goodness that we’ll have our reliable plasma cutter at hand to end any type of threat. If we don’t die trying.
You can buy Dead Space for $3.74 from the Microsoft Store.
This is just a personal selection of the best games for less than five dollars of the Xbox Shocktober sale.
