New screens and date for Outlast

New screens and date for Outlast

Indie studio Red Barrels's promising survival horror game Outlast will be available on Steam on September 4 for $19.99. PlayStation 4 players will also be able to face what lies inside Mount Massive Asylum (at a later date) as the game was announced for Sony's console last month at E3.

I really don't like full screen "camera" views. At this point we have the technology to make the character actually hold an object up as a part of the viewmodel which can act as a view for the player while retaining immersion... Hrm.

he does hold up a physical camera, you see it when he changes batteries.

anyway, visually looks pretty awful, but it looks intense as hell, like a next gen condemned. and it's a budget release with a budget price, hopefully it's on the PSN store come the PS4's release.

Finally a date! Looks damn scary, will make for quite the jumps.

Looks pretty good for a handful of people, a downloadable, in a genre that "the big guys" have abandoned.

Would be great if it was on X360/bone, but I'll take PC.

I really wish I could get into more horror stuff, but I just can't stand the "jump scare".

After watching a few videos, this seems to combine a bit of the Silent Hill style ominous scares along with the Res. Evil style jump scares. The early videos were brilliant, but a lot of what was seen appeared heavily scripted. If they can pull of a game like this that is at least somewhat dynamic, I will be blown away.

I have always wanted a horror game that rewards those who are immersed and explore while giving unique unscripted moments (catching something out of the corner of your eye and wondering what you just saw). Scripted has a tendency to kill horror games for me, as I feel like I am being prodded toward the scares. That is why Silent Hill was so great. Even though it was basically all scripted, it gave enough freedom to feel like I was in control and no just watching a movie. I have high hopes that this will be well worth the $20...

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i'd like them to make the story make some sense and be complete before adding any of this side stuff. It was such a disjointed mess (8 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Moonwalker: Because the side quests in this one...hoo boy....the worst kind of fetch bullshit there is. (56 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Can't argue with that, it really was quite a disappontment in the end. If they would annouce that they are actually adding fun and meaningful side quests....that be great and sorely needed. (57 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @alimokrane: just get the samsung we keep recommending. it's honestly the best bang for buck you can get. you can get better sets, but you will pay the price. and it seem your budget isnt very high. (1 Hour ago)

    alimokrane @KORNdog: It's so confusing man.. I have been slaving for a week for a decent 4kt TV and I keep hitting all these little things and it's annoying lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's all i really understand of it. seems HDR10 is what most TV's have though, so you're probably safe with that. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog a dolby featured one can still do HDR10. but it doesnt work the other way around. also dolby's goes up to 4000nits (arguably future proof but no TV supports it yet) and HDR10 goes up to 1000 nits. (2 Hours ago)
