The Outlast Trials Adds Co-Op to the Survival Horror Series
Red Barrels has announced The Outlast Trials, a co-op entry in the Outlast survival horror series.The Outlast Trials is set in the same universe as Outlast and Outlast 2, but earlier in the timeline as it takes place during the Cold War. Red Barrels notes that “The Outlast Trials will allow players to face the horrors of the trials by themselves or cooperate with up to 3 other test subjects,” which suggests that the game will take place in some kind of science facility.The game is currently in development, with no release date currently in sight. Red Barrels co-founder David Chateauneuf says “Now we’ve done our proof of concept, it is time to focus on content creation, variety… and gore.”25 Scariest Games of This GenerationThe Outlast games are considered some of the most frightening video games around.
