In a press release, Red Barrels has kicked off the Outlast scare-athon with the release of both the Outlast 2 and Outlast Trinity launch trailers.
For those not familiar with Outlast Trinity, it’s a physical release of Outlast, Outlast: Whistleblower and Outlast 2, all in one convenient and scary package. Obviously, the main game here is Outlast 2, since it’s the follow up to Red Barrels’ critically acclaimed horror game (yes, we liked it a lot!). Game synopsis straight from the press release below.
As journalists, you and your wife have a reputation for taking risks and digging into the stories no one else dares to touch, but this time you may have gone too far. Your investigation of a seemingly impossible murder leads you deep into the Arizona desert, and into a darkness so wicked that no light could ever shine upon it.
No conflict is ever black and white. But once the dust has settled, the victors get to decide who was right and who was wrong. Who is good and who is evil. Human nature pushes us to extremes of violence and depravity, which we then justify by divine inspiration and a promise of paradise to come. Horror rises from desperation and blind faith. Outlast 2 will test your faith, pushing players to a place where going mad is the only sane thing to do.
Haven’t played the first one? Then maybe Outlast Trinity is the more compelling one, then? Check out the launch trailer for the compilation below.
As someone who really liked Outlast, I’m definitely excited to be scared shitless once again. I might have to lower the volume down, and pester my wife to play it alongside me, but excited still!
Stay tuned to our Outlast 2 review soon.
