Friday the 13th may have been just last week, but Microsoft is determined to keep the scares coming with the latest Deals With Gold sale. The Xbox Indie Horror Game Sale will run from 4/17 until 4/24 and features quite a few popular horror games at a great discount. Some of the highlights include Friday the 13th: The Game for only $16, Dead by Daylight for only $15, and Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut for only $5.61.

Check out the full list of horror games on sale below. Note that a few of the entries, such as Mutant Football League, are very loosely horror-themed but still included and considered part of the official sale.


As you can tell, there are quite a a lot of titles on sale. Besides the popular games like Friday the 13th: The Game and Dead by Daylight, a few others we can recommend horror fans check out are SOMA, Outlast, The Final Station, and Vaccine. You can also check out our review of Vaccine which we rated an 8 out 10, calling it "a love letter to the survival horror greats that came before it."

Also, if interested, you can watch Dead Entertainment's very own Brandon Evans playing Among the Sleep from this week's Twitch livestream. We'd also like to remind you that Dead Space 2 and its downloadable content are currently free to Gold members in addition to the current sale on the other two games in the franchise. Now's the time to check them out or replay them again on the cheap.

Which horror games, if any, will you be picking up from this sale? I'm personally planning on grabbing a couple myself so expect some new reviews soon!
