7 must-play titles on Xbox to play this Halloween

Its the most wonderful time of the year, no not Christmas, it’s Halloween Season. While you might be tempted to curl up with a hot chocolate and some scary movies, why not try some spooky games instead? Whether you’re looking for something cute and cosy, or something downright terrifying, I’ve gathered up some inspiration.

I took to Twitter (or X, as some people call it) and asked a simple question: What are your favorite spooky games to play on Xbox? I got a lot of different answers, but here are some that I’ve either played or plan to play this October. Forget the 7 deadly sins, here are 7 unmissable games that will make your Spooktober chilling…

Vampire Survivors

Vampire Survivors is a deceptive game that sucks you in with its cute pixelated art to mow down hordes of creatures and survive for 30 mins, sounds simple enough right? Once it has its claws in, you’ll sink hours into the rogue-lite gameplay and trying to beat the Reaper and unlock each levels secrets.

Ok, so it may not be ‘scary’ and frankly, we still haven’t found a vampire. There are bats though, and golems, and reapers, and other monsters hordes to fight off. If you haven’t already played Vampire Survivors, now would be a great time to start. Even if you have, the ‘Whiteout’ update is coming soon and likely to drop this month with a stage and boss to beat. Not only is the base game on Xbox Game Pass, but if you want to purchase it, it’s only $4.99 for hours upon hours of a bloody good time. Pack all the garlic you can, it’s time to go vampire hunting.

Resident Evil 4

The Resident Evil franchise is iconic and to discuss horror games and not mention Resident Evil would be an injustice. If you haven’t played the Resident Evil 4 Remake yet, now would be a fantastic time to fire it up.

Leon Kennedy returns, on a mission to rescue the President’s daughter, who’s been abducted by a wicked cult in this fourth installment. Stunning next-gen visuals aside, the gruesome gore, satisfying weapons, and arcade style combat will have you dying to play more (and I did, 3 times). Whether you’ve played the original tale or not, it’s worth checking out as the remake brings its own twists and turns to the original story.
