Will You Be Able To Outlast The Horrors In A New Game From Red Barrels? [Video]
The horror genre for video games got a new entrant today that is being developed by a new company that is made up of some big hitters who use to work for game developers like Ubisoft, Naughty Dog, and EA.
The company is called Red Barrels and their game; which is currently in development, is called Outlast and is centered in a recently reopened asylum in the mountains of Colorado. From their page announcing the game:
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.
So if horror is your pleasure check out the short (very short) trailer that they have released for the game and mark your calender for the summer of 2013.
