Red Barrels Announces “The Outlast Trials”

The Red Barrel team is proud to announce its next instalment in popular survival horror franchise Outlast, named The Outlast Trials.

The world of Outlast is a true survival horror experience. It aims to show that the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind… and Red Barrels!

The Outlast Trials will be set in the same thrilling universe as other Outlast games. This is despite not being a direct sequel to the other critically acclaimed Outlast titles in the series. To be more precise, Trials is set right in the middle of the Cold War era. 

The Outlast Trials will allow players to face the horrors of the trials by themselves or cooperate with up to 3 other test subjects. After all, it’s always better to shit your pants with some friends!

Welcome to Hell

David Chateauneuf, Red Barrels’ co-founder said;

“We are proud to reveal the title and the first image of the game to our great community and fans. Our team is hard at work creating a new experience that will bring fear and anxiety to millions of players, whether they go through the experiments alone or with friends”.

Press Release

The Outlast Trials is still in the early stages of production. Red Barrels has been working on developing the title for months and is now ramping up the production process.

Chateauneuf adds;

“Now we’ve done our proof of concept, it is time to focus on content creation, variety…and gore”.

Press Release

Hell is an experiment you can’t survive in Outlast. A first-person survival horror game series developed by veterans of some of the biggest game franchises in history. Thanks to its immersive atmosphere, sound design, and full-frontal scares, Outlast has been critically acclaimed.

Can You Outlast the (New) Horrors?

The series soon became the leading horror game experience of its generation. The rules of the Outlast universe are simple;- run, hide or die trying.

The original Outlast begins with an intriguing anonymous tip that leads you to explore the dark heart of Mount Massive Asylum. This asylum is home to the secret experiments of the Murkoff Corporation. 

Whistleblower, the DLC continuation, tells the backstory to the atrocities found in Outlast. It also stretches past the events of the first game to show the final bloody chapter in Mount Massive Asylum’s story. 

Outlast 2 places you deep in the wilderness where you discover the residents of Temple Gate. You also come face-to-face with corruption so profound that going mad may be the only sane thing to do.
