After the critical and commercial success of Outlast, it’s only natural Red Barrels would want to continue down that path with a sequel. The first teaser for Outlast 2 debuted today, and its religious subject matter already seems more intriguing than the nightmarish asylum of the first game.
Outside of what can be gleaned from the video, there’s also this vague description to go on:
“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. 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.”
As far as platforms, we’re looking at Windows, Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The tentative release date is fall 2016, so we’ll probably be playing this by next Halloween.
