Ok I’ll admit it, I had no idea what Outlast was, I know that’s bad because it is my job to know, but I have video games coming out of ears and everywhere else I don’t care to mention, so it was slightly overlooked. Now that I’ve watched it in action, I really have no words at the moment…well scary as h.. comes to mind, atmosphere, tension, survival, well I guess I could associate this video footage with those common words. Needless to say I am super impressed with what I’m seeing.
Coming from a new indie developer (Red Barrels) with AAA studio roots, this brief footage is indeed a testament to the amazing talent under the radar from the indie community. With that said I was not surprised to learn that this title is not only releasing on PC but also the PS4. In fact, when Outlast finally arrives Qtr 1, 2014 on the PS4 it will free to play for a month for Playstation Plus members. In the meantime PC gamers are in serious luck as Outlast releases September 4th on PC for only $19.99.
