Outlast is a survival horror video game developed by Red Barrels in which you play as a reporter in an abandoned asylum armed with nothing but a camera. Players must ration their camera batteries — or risk being completely blind — and stealthily avoid enemies rather than fighting them head on similar to the play style of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Outlast will be launching on Steam sometime this summer, and will also be released on the PS4.
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.
