It seems that a new independent studio called Red Barrels, is behind this new horror themed game. Now the interesting part is that the studio is composed of some developers from Ubisoft and Naughty Dog alike. More specifically, from the guys who brought us Splinter Cell, Prince Of Persia, Uncharted, Assassin’s Creed and many more games. Their focus is on highly entertaining and unforgettable single-player games. So what is the first project of these guys? Well… it’s called Outlast. Here’s a rundown of the situation:
In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, has been operating in strict secrecy… until now.
Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line being science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.
Sounds pretty cool, no? We also got a teaser trailer of the (pretty scary looking) game, right here:
Outlast will launch exclusively on the PC next year, digital only. So what do you think? Interested? With games like Resident Evil and Dead Space following a more action oriented nature, might we see a new contender in the horror genre? Sound off in the comment section bellow!
Vlad Pintea isn’t really into horror games because he’s really easily frightened, but if the story is there, then he might accept a few nightmares only to see how it all ads up. Other than that, he likes doing reviews, looking for funny stuff gaming-related, starting conversations about gaming and such and always being up to speed with the latest news and rumors concerning video games.

Stay calm and keep on gaming!
