  1. Outlast 2 may have been been delayed until 2017, but players can at least get their hands on a small bit of the game this month. Red Barrels, the developer behind the psychotic horror game Outlast and its upcoming sequel, has released a demo that provides the public with a free slice of gameplay from Outlast 2. The demo is available digitally via Steam (PC), Xbox Live (Xbox One), and PSN (PS4). However, it will only be available for a limited time. Red Barrels will be pulling the demo from digital storefronts on November 1, so download it before then if you want to scare yourself silly. We were pretty impressed with Outlast 2's E3 showing earlier this year, with writer Alissa Gould calling what she saw "terrifyingly fantastic." Though it is a shame the title won't be releasing this year, a horror demo around Halloween might just be the perfect consolation to help us - outlast - the delay.

    Outlast 2 Pushes the Limits of Horror

    I have to be honest here and say that I did not finish the first Outlast because I was too afraid. Call me what you want, but being locked in an asylum filled with unsavory characters at every turn became the stuff of nightmares for me. So you can imagine my heart-pounding terror when I stepped up to play Red Barrel's Outlast 2. Talking to the co-founder and game designer Philippe Morin and his senior technical artist Alexander Sabourin, I asked how different this game was compared to the first one. They responded by telling me that it has an all new story that really "pushes the limits" when it comes to the fear tactics and gore. I had mentioned to them that I did not finish the first one, nor got a chance to play the DLC, and they were nearly jumping at the chance to watch me play their new one. Nervous as I could be, with the creators of the game watching behind me, I put on the headphones and timidly jumped into the game. The story follows a husband and wife journalist pair in the process of covering the murder of a pregnant woman known as Jane Doe. Their investigation leads them deep into the Arizona desert, where their helicopter "mysteriously goes down." The wife goes missing after the crash and the husband embarks on a search for help. I think it's safe to say that help is far from what players will find. As terrified as I was to play this game, I was fascinated by the incredible attention to detail they put in. After the helicopter crash, the husband leaves the crash site injured, limping to find help, which effects his walking speed. When creepy village people hit him with sharp objects, he slows down at an alarming rate. And in just the first 5 minutes of playing, I had plenty of questions about the mysteries of this Arizona dwelling to keep me distracted from the unrelenting horror. During the demo I was haunted by supernatural beings, grabbed by mumbling fanatics, and chased through cornfields. After embarrassingly screaming out loud a few times, I finished the demo by dying just a few feet from escaping alive. I took the headphones off, heart pounding and a huge smile on my face, and Morin and Sabourin asked me how it was. It was terrifyingly fantastic. Outlast 2 releases fall 2016 for Xbox one, PlayStation 4, and PC.

  7. Today, Red Barrels announced a release date and price for Outlast, the scariest game we played during E3. The chilling experience of playing as wayward reporter Miles Upshur as he ventures through a supposedly abandoned asylum for the criminally insane captured the attention of many in the video game press, garnering the title numerous awards and praise for its immersive audio and disempowering design choices. Red Barrels even touts the survival horror title as having the honor of being E3's “Most Likely to Make You Faint.” Outlast will be released via Steam and digital download for PC on September 4, 2013 at the price of $19.99.

    Outlast Screams onto PC This September

    Today, Red Barrels announced a release date and price for Outlast, the scariest game we played during E3.

  9. One of the indie titles on display at the Sony E3 booth was a game called Outlast. I stopped by to play Red Barrels’ heart-pounding descent into horror on the PS4. While waiting to play the game I took the opportunity to chat with a couple of the Outlast developers. With their goal being to “make the game as scary as possible,” I was told that Outlast relies heavily on paranoia, drawing upon the hair-raising Amnesia: The Dark Descent for inspiration. I was also told that they designed the game with somewhat unpredictable AI. Even while playtesting the game multiple times, enemies would do the unexpected and create organic scares. This means that few of the moments in Outlast are predetermined, scripted events. Scenarios employ an “ease in, ease out” where a scripted sequence will introduce a new enemy and their motivation, then concluding with another scripted sequence. In between these two segments, the AI will take over and direct the enemy’s actions for the majority of the gameplay segment. In Outlast, players take on the mantle of independent journalist Miles Upshur as he breaks into a remote asylum for the criminally insane in Colorado. Miles is on the trail of a compelling news story after receiving an anonymous tip that something was happening at the asylum. This is the situation in which I assumed control of Miles and began playing. Being a journalist, Miles’ constant companion throughout the game will be his trusty camera, through which he views almost all of the horrific events taking place within the asylum. The camera is his only tool, allowing him and the player to see in the darkness. The downside of this is that the camera runs on batteries. If you run out of batteries, your ability to see in the dark is drastically reduced and you are left very vulnerable. One of the hooks of Outlast is that there is no combat. You cannot fight the enemies, you can only run, hide, and pray that they don’t find you. After checking the front door of the asylum and finding it locked, Miles decides it would be a great idea to break in through an old set of scaffolding which leads up to a window. Upon entering, he sees blood all over the floor. For some suicidal reason he is undeterred and pushes on, despite seeing bodies and obvious signs that something has gone horribly wrong. By the time Miles figures out that the asylum is one of the worst places on earth it is too late and he is trapped in the depths of the asylum with some of the worst and most twisted criminal minds on the loose. Not all of the enemies will want to kill Miles immediately. This trades on the paranoia that Red Barrels wants to provide. Some of the inmates will have different reactions toward Miles ranging from benevolence to apathy to murderous hatred. The question most survival horror fans must be pondering: Is Outlast scary? Horror, like humor, is a subjective thing. However, in my time with Outlast I physically jumped, was unnerved, and made involuntary noises. The atmosphere is taut and nails the feeling of being in an abandoned building full of lunatics. As for the lunatics in question they were incredibly effective as nightmare material. In my estimation: Yes. Outlast is very scary and you can look forward to being terrified and entertained. Outlast will debut on PC at the end of summer, while the PS4 version will release in early 2014. Currently there are no plans to bring the title to Xbox One. View full article
