Harnessing the power of Unreal Engine 5, Stray Souls is an upcoming action-horror game inspired by “classic horror combat with soulslike precision” coming to Xbox later this year.
Developer Jukai Studio’s debut title Stray Souls sees protagonist Daniel fighting for his life against the forces of evil after inheriting a home from his estranged grandmother. It’s built using Unreal Engine 5, and while we don’t have a solid release date yet, we know it’s heading to Xbox later this year.

After inheriting his grandmother’s house in Aspen Falls, Daniel thinks he’s hit the big time, no rent, no mortgage, and no worries; that’s until his world is turned upside down and he begins to learn that the sinister forces coming against him are all part of a plot set into motion when he was born. With the help of a mysterious woman that seems to know far too much about his family, Daniel must fight to survive and bring an end to the evil.
Stray Souls is built in Unreal Engine 5 and will use Epic’s MetaHuman technology to create advanced facial animations for a photorealistic experience. With dynamic lighting and weather, randomised enemy encounters and item locations, and branching dialogue options working alongside the choice-driven storyline, Jakai Studios says that no two playthroughs will be the same. You’ll need to solve puzzles to unlock the secrets of Daniel’s heritage, choose whether to fight or escape the hordes of demented creatures coming for you, and defeat numerous bosses that require “soulslike precision” to defeat.
Stray Souls will be challenging some of the best Xbox horror games later this year. Will you be travelling to Aspen Falls? Drop down below and let us know!
