Horror fans, the wait is finally over, Outlast 2 and Outlast Trinity hits stores today for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Outlast 2 is the sequel to the terrifyingly creepy horror of the same name and Outlast Trinity is a physical release, combining the first game with the Whistleblower DLC and the second game.
(As always, viewer discretion is advised if you choose to watch the trailers)
For those new to the series, Outlast is a first person survival horror, with the emphasis being on surviving. The key to play is stealth as attacking enemies ins’t an option so players are forced to either run or hide in order to keep breathing. In both games, you take control of an investigative journalist with a camera as his only weapon. Most of the game is seen through a lens due to night vision but batteries are in short supply and must be conserved in order to stay alive.
The first Outlast sees you playing as Miles Upshur, investigating a psychiatric hospital where a tip has led you to believe the staff are conducting experiments that are less than humane….but all is not as it seems as our hapless hero is soon to find out. Outlast Whistleblower focuses on Waylon Park, a software engineer working at the asylum and his story before he leads Miles to investigate the story. Outlast 2 sees another journalist, Blake Langermann, crash landing in a desert with his wife while heading to solve the mysterious murder of a young pregnant woman…..and as you likely guessed, things do not go well.
