Alien: Isolation is one of the most intense games on PlayStation and Xbox, so bringing that experience to Minecraft can be quite fun. This map takes that loot feel and integrates it into a blocky world with an added co-op accessibility not present in the original game. You are stranded on a space station and being hunted by a vicious alien. You must sneak past him without drawing his ire.

Hello Neighbor

If you’re a fan of the Hello Neighbor game, this horror map is built around and heavily inspired by that game. Like its source material, you’ll explore the neighbor’s house and try to solve puzzles by finding objects in the area while avoiding being spotted by the homeowner.

You are on the long drive home after a long journey. You don’t realize it, but you didn’t keep an eye on the fuel gauge. You can hardly keep your eyes open. Later your car runs out of gas and you are stranded in the middle of nowhere. You certainly won’t accomplish anything by staying in your car, so head out to find shelter and hopefully help. Unfortunately, you will find the orphanage instead. Explore this abandoned place and find out what forces are still at play here. The 7 Best Minecraft Horror Maps
