PlayStation’s massive Halloween Sale is live on the PlayStation Store with nearly 350 deals on PS4 games and some PS5 games as well. And as you would expect, horror games heavily populate the sale. Featured in the promotional sale are series and games like The Walking Dead, Resident Evil, Dying Light, DayZ, Diablo, Five Nights at Freddy’s, Until Dawn, Dragon Age, and The Evil Within. As you can see by the inclusion of Dragon Age especially, PlayStation is playing fast and loose with what qualifies as a “Halloween” game. That said, for the most part, it’s horror games and franchises, or at least games and franchises with horror elements.
To this end, we have highlighted some of the cheapest deals within the sale. More specifically, five games under $3 and that we can recommend. There are some even cheaper games featured in the sale but unless you’re looking for a bad Halloween experience you should stay far away from them.
Below, you can check out all five games. This includes a trailer for each game, a description for each game, and a link to the unique PlayStation Store page for each game.
