Red Barrels, the team behind the acclaimed survival horror series Outlast, has unveiled its next project. Called The Outlast Trials, it’s set in the same universe as its predecessors but during the Cold War and therefore not a direct sequel. Interestingly, in a first for an Outlast game, this next installment will feature co-operative elements for up to four other players.
David Chateauneuf, Red Barrels co-founder said of today’s announcement:
“We are proud to reveal the title and the first image of the game to our great community and fans,” said “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.”
Don’t expect The Outlast Trials in the near future, though. The game is said to be in the early stages of production, with Red Barrels having been working on the project for “months” but now “ramping up the production process.”
For now, we have the below key art to gaup at while we wait for more details, presumably some time early next year.
Chateauneuf adds one last closing thought:
“Now we’ve done our proof of concept, it is time focus on content creation, variety… and gore.
