Red Barrels have announced Outlast 2 but an all-new co-operative horror experience playable with up to three other players. 
Horror games are a curious thing. We’re paying good money to scare ourselves witless, potentially having a miserably grim time as we poke around decrepit cemeteries and mental asylums. In terms of games of this ilk, few were as pant soiling and oppressive as the original Outlast, a masterclass in creeping dread and powerlessness. Outlast 2 promises to do all this and then some when it drops next week. If the launch trailer is anything to go by, it’s going to be truly torturous….
Oh boy. After the excruciating torment of getting through Outlast, I'd thought I'd seen the last of its diabolical ways. But alas, it's back and looking more terrifying than ever; a tale of killer villagers, horrendous inbreeding, and some good old fashioned fisticuffs between good and evil. No, I'm not talking about Midsomer Murders, but Outlast 2. It's slicing its way onto PC next week, here are Outlast 2's official PC system requirementsc so you can make sure you're good and ready for the horror show.
Few things can rocket a game up the bestseller lists quicker than a good old fashioned banning. Outlast 2, the survival horror sequel to 2014’s Outlast, has been refused classification in Australia due to excessive “cruelty, violence and abhorrent phenomena”. Horror fans across the globe now basically need this game.
The horrendously terrifying looking Outlast 2 will launch on April 25 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Red Barrels has announced. The reveal comes via the official Twitter account, confirming console players will also be able to get their hands on a physical collection of both Outlast, Outlast 2 and the Outlast: Whistleblower DLC, all collectively known as Outlast Trinity.
It’s been mysteriously lurking on the Steam store and listed as ‘Coming Soon’ for the best part of a year now, but developers Red Barrels have finally come out and announced Outlast 2 has been pushed to early 2017.
Last year's ultimate scare-fest Outlast has a sequel in the works, although it’s early days so there's no word yet on how long fans will have to wait for Outlast 2. The first person survival horror launched on PC and was followed up with with PS4 and Xbox One versions this year.
As if we hadn’t had our fair share of horrifying news today, Red Barrels has only gone and announced a release date for Outlast’s Whistleblower expansion.
Strap yourself in because the first batch of downloadable content for the truly terrifying Outlast will officially be available this April, developer Red Barrels announced today.
Just in time for the celebration of all things dead called Halloween that we’ve bizarrely come to know and love, comes the announcement of Outlast’s first batch of DLC.
Outlast came out on 04/09 and for those of you brave enough to give it a try here are the minimum and recommended system requirements.
