Halloween night. 1996. A group of teenagers awake to find themselves trapped in a dark, twisted reflection of their sleepy hometown of Forest Hills. As they make their way across the East Side High School campus, they realize they are being hunted by a supernatural force taking the forms of fearsome killers. Relentlessly pursued, the teens must band together to fight back, survive, and escape the terrifying anomaly they have come to know as The Nightmare.
5 SURVIVORS, 1 KILLER
Putting the emphasis on team-based strategy and objectives, Last Year: The Nightmare is a 6-player online action game in which five players work together and attempt to escape while fighting back deadly killers controlled by the sixth. Each of the five players pick a survivor and a class, while their rival has three different enemies to choose from, each with a unique style of play, signature weapon and gruesome tactic.
Move around the map, completely invisible, and meticulously plan your attacks. While the killer won’t be able to attack in Predator mode, they can set traps, stalk and plan a vicious ambush or simply toy with their prey.
Nowhere is safe.
Pick a class, collect scrap, craft items and weapons and strategize to up your chances of survival. Players can sneak and slash their way through different areas, all while exploring an eerie atmosphere powered by Unreal Engine.

Last Year: The Nightmare is among the best the asymmetrical survival-horror genre has to offer so far. While it's light on content and has some severe bugs, the rewarding class-based gameplay and great killer diversity makes each match feel slightly different and equally exciting.
