Unreal Engine 5 horror brings BioShock meets Stranger Things
Unreal Engine 5 continues to exceed my expectations with each result that it produces, continually surpassing my hopes.
Unreal Engine 5 has some truly exciting games in development that promise to give us some unforgettable open world adventures and spine-chilling horror experiences – guaranteed to give us no restful nights of sleep!
Macabre stands out among Unreal Engine 5 projects as being among the most promising I’ve encountered, developed and published by Weforge Studio and featuring stealth extraction horror elements reminiscent of BioShock or Stranger Things.
Macabre promises you and your friends the chance to “traverse infinite timelines, including those belonging to other players, within an unstable time rift. Upgrade your gear as you face interdimensional terrors to stay alive as long as possible in this uncertain reality – will you ultimately escape or become another prisoner?”
Macabre promises the experience of single-player horror gaming with friends: players will slowly unwrap a central mystery while exploring “haunting” locations, where puzzles must be completed while dodging horrifying monsters.
Multiplayer horror can often prove challenging to pull off successfully, yet Macabre appears capable of offering something truly innovative.
“Fear of the unknown” is what creates such an intense experience,” writes Weforge. In Macabre, everything from maps, objectives and puzzles is entirely randomised; furthermore, your actions directly influence monster behavior further enhancing its unpredictability; you never know which set of unique challenges await when playing Macabre!
Macabre is listed on Steam as “coming soon”, suggesting we might discover more of its horror in 2024. In any event, I think Macabre warrants keeping an eye on.
