Survival-horror games have seen a bit of resurgence as of late. That’s great news if you enjoy dark atmospheres, thrilling sequences, and evil entities. We’ve seen developers take advantage of this growing trend and have a lot of success. One of the more unique games in this space right now is Dawn of Fear.

It’s a game about exploring creepy environments, managing your limited resources, and solving puzzles. Just hearing this description, it sounds like a mix between the Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises. Finally, a developer has decided to fuse these storied series together. The game is now officially out on the PS4.

To celebrate its release, a new gameplay trailer was just revealed. It definitely has that throwback survival-horror feel to it just in the opening sequences. We see a third-person perspective and tank controls. We also see creepy creatures charging at the game’s main protagonist, Alex. They honestly feel like they were heavily inspired by the Silent Hill series.

For the most part, they seem decently designed. Their bizarre nature definitely will have you scratching your head and wondering what could be around the next corner. That suspense seems to be a key element in Dawn of Fear.

In addition to the creepy monsters, we also see slow and clumsy zombies. That’s where the Resident Evil vibes come in. It’s interesting to see the meshing of two iconic horror franchises. For the most part, it seems like the game’s developer — Brok3nsite — was successful in giving them a slightly modern update.

The trailer concludes with a terrifying and rather large creature. Thus, it’s pretty safe to assume there will be some epic boss fights as you progress through the creepy and atmospheric stages. If you love the survival-horror genre, Dawn of Fear certainly looks like the game for you.

It hasn’t been out that long, and already, reviews are starting to come in. They seem to be pretty mixed. As you might imagine, the controls can be a bit clunky. And yet, there’s something special about the game’s themes and atmosphere. It’s the perfect love letter to this genre, which is still going strong today.

Games like Dawn of Fear don’t come out that often. So when they do, they immediately have a bunch of fans lining up to experience the throwback themes and controls. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the community feels once they get their hands on it.
