Upcoming survival horror sequel Outlast 2 will arrive April 25th in North America and April 28th internationally on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
The Sequel is set in the same universe as the first game, but features new characters and a brand-new setting. Outlast 2 “is a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets,” according to the developer.
“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,” the game’s description reads. “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.”
The game was originally scheduled to launch in fall of last year, but was delayed to give the development team more time to make the game scarier.
It was also announced that a publishing agreement had been struck between developer Red Barrels and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to release Outlast Trinity digitally and at retail worldwide. This new collection launches on the same day as Outlast 2 and bundles the sequel with the original Outlast and its DLC Outlast Whistleblower, which tells the story of what happened before the events of the first game.
