Unreal Engine 5 Slender Man game is pure nightmare fuel

Unreal Engine 5 Slender Man game is pure nightmare fuel

Slender: The Arrival has received an Unreal Engine 5 graphics overhaul, and the results are terrifying.

We’re past October’s midway point, which means we’re rapidly approaching Halloween. Here at GAMINGbible, we’ve been seeking out all the latest and greatest of the horror genre, so you have the perfect spooktacular treat to celebrate the occasion.

Just this week, we’ve uncovered what one of my colleagues called “the most unsettling game I’ve ever seen” - and it’s easy to see why. Elsewhere, horror fans took to social media to hail “the most realistic” horror game they’d come across. If you’re a PC gamer, you can currently also download the critically-acclaimed horror The Evil Within - no strings attached. Today though, we’re here to discuss the return of a horror icon, Slender Man.

Horror Dead Space will soon land on Xbox Game Pass. Take a look at the game in action below.

If you’re into horror, you’ll likely remember Slender: The Arrival which landed all the way back in 2013. Did you know that just last month, The Arrival announced that it would be celebrating its 10th anniversary with a major update, including an Unreal Engine 5 graphical overhaul. Oh boy, the results are, as you might expect, pure nightmare fuel.

Over on YouTube, channel ENFANT TERRIBLE - well known for highlighting UE5 projects - posted a short gameplay segment. “Wow. Graphics are crazy,” read one comment, while another viewer said, “OMG. Hell no … love it.” Isn’t that the experience most of us horror fans have? Feeling utterly scared and yet simultaneously in total adoration. Take a look at the gameplay below.

The switch to UE5 wasn’t the only change in the anniversary update. Devs also added an additional story chapter. The update was launched on 18 October, so you can fire it up in your game right now.
