Red Barrels is back with a new spin on the Outlast franchise, this time introducing co-op so that you and your friends can try and survive together. This news came during the Gamescom 2021 Opening Night event, as Geoff Keighley introduced more info for the new game, titled The Outlast Trials.

The description for The Outlast Trials provides the following synopsis of the game:
Set in the height of the Cold War era, players take on the role of test subjects abducted by the shadowy Murkoff Corporation.
