Remothered: Broken Porcelain Is Launching a Week Early to Beat the Horror Game Rush

Games discussed:

October is always a popular month for horror games, and the team behind Remothered: Broken Porcelain is well aware it has some competition in 2020. With that in mind, the publishing team at Modus Games has announced Remothered: Broken Porcelain is releasing a week early on October 13 - which is a nice surprise given the industry trends toward delays. 

Broken Porcelain is the hide-and-seek horror sequel to 2018's Remothered: Tormented Fathers. In it players must use their wits and whatever they can find around a large manor to evade enemies and solve a mystery that is more out-there than even Resident Evil's strangest moments. The original game earned Fair scores here on OpenCritic, with 35 critics giving it a 70 average at launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox.

The schedule Remothered is trying to dodge is a formidable one. Joining the game this October are several other horror games, but perhaps none bigger than Amnesia: Rebirth, which was scheduled to launch on the same day as Broken Porcelain, October 20, before the latter moved up a week. 

That's not all. Making its console debut after a year on PC, Song of Horror comes to Xbox and PS4 n October 29. On October 30, Litte Hope arrives as the second of at least three games in Supermassive's Dark Pictures anthology. 

Later this year, we're also expected to see Monstrum 2, an asymmetrical multiplayer horror in the vein of Dead By Daylight, as well as The Medium, an Xbox Series X/S launch exclusive from Bloober Team, the studio behind Layers of Fear

Even before Remothered comes This Is The Zodiac Speaking on October 15, which will give a historical fiction spin on the real-life Zodiac Killer who was never identified. It won't have the typical ghouls and ghosts of other horror games coming soon, but it's got a tone fitting of the spooky Halloween season all the same.

Horror fans have a lot to look forward to.
