Red Barrels showed off some gameplay snippets from The Outlast Trials during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live. It is a whole new take on the Outlast survival horror experience, set in the same universe as the previous titles but now allowing players to escape the terror either alone or together with up to four other players.
Set during the height of Cold War, players take on the role of test subjects abducted by the shadowy Murkoff Corporation. Imprisoned in a secret facility, players will be thrust into a series of physical and mental ordeals, tormented by iconic characters, and challenged alone or in teams to survive with their sanity intact.
The Outlast Trials is now scheduled for a 2022 release, which will allow the team to deliver a more memorable experience for their fans.
