The Silent Hill-inspired Post Trauma set to scare you this fall

Post Trauma I Release Window Trailer

Upcoming Raw Fury horror homage title Post Trauma is set to release this fall, according to a new trailer released Thursday.

The trailer, which debuted during the 2024 Guerrilla Interactive showcase, revealed that the game, which was announced during The Game Awards 2022, will hit PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S this fall, although it’s unclear if it will arrive in time for spooky games season around Halloween.

The video also features new footage from this atmospheric horror throwback developed by Red Soul Games, a Spanish independent studio. During the first teaser, we got a good look at some of its retro-inspired puzzles and some of its settings. This time around, we got some dialogue and more clues about the story. Here, you’ll play as Roman, a train conductor who gets trapped in a grimy, disturbing world and has to escape. According to the Steam page, “will you uncover the truth and find a way back to your family?”

However, you’re not alone. The release window announcement shows some other characters who are trapped with you. A voice screams: “You think you can escape what you have done?” Raw Fury also revealed that Japanese character actor Togo Igawa is playing Roman, while Autumn Ivy and Hyoie O’Grady will play unnamed characters.

The Steam page describes Post Trauma as “a horror game inspired by genre-defining classics of the past decades.” The Silent Hill vibes are especially apparent, with a third-person view, degraded locations filled with organic-looking horrors, monsters that look like twisted humans, and the hell-like other world. The trailers also feature a number of puzzles that are reminiscent of Silent Hill, the Resident Evil games, the first few Amnesia games, Alone in the Dark, and many others.

Sable drives across the desert in a glider.

I’m soaring across the desert on my glider. I don’t know where I am or how far I am from my destination -- I’m not even sure I know what it’ll look like when I get there. All that matters, at this moment, is the whine of my hoverbike’s engine. With nothing to do but drive, I listen to its constant mechanical wheeze closely. I can’t decide if I’m sitting on an advanced piece of sci-fi tech or a total lemon. All I know is that it sounds like it’s putting all its efforts into getting me where I need to be.

Then I notice the music. It's a minimalist track with steady percussion thumping like a heartbeat. Is it actually music at all? Or am I hearing my own body as it tries to put a beat to my bike’s engine, providing it a tempo to breathe along to? The barrier between human and machine melts away for the rest of my ride; my bike and I are one.

A massive undead creature blocks the path of survivors in State of Decay 3,

While the world's zombie obsession isn't as prevalent as it was a few years ago, we're still set to see some serious undead action in the future. Undead Labs has a third entry in its State of Decay series in the works that will surely pit an eclectic cast of survivors against hordes of wandering undead as they try to rebuild in a brutal world. Each entry of the series so far has included action-adventure, survival-horror, stealth, role-playing, and strategy elements, blending genres into an interesting civilization-rebuilding, zombie-decapitating experience.

We still don't have a lot of details on what State of Decay 3 gameplay will look like, but we have a couple of fantastic trailers released. It's definitely one of our most anticipated upcoming Xbox Series X games. Here's everything we know about State of Decay 3 right now.

How to start the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC in Elden Ring
Elden Ring gameplay

When it comes to DLC, FromSoftware likes to make it a bit of a challenge to actually find the new content. Dark Souls was notorious for how cryptic it was to get to its DLC, but thankfully*, Elden Ring* doesn't make things quite so hard.

Still, if you're preparing to play Shadow of the Erdtree and want to see the new zone, fight new bosses, and get new weapons right away, you probably don't want to spend hours scouring the massive map looking for the entrance. There are two steps you need to make sure you complete before you can access the Shadow of the Erdtree content, but after that, it's smooth sailing. Here's what you should complete in the base game before the DLC launches.
