Outlast reveals new footage

Outlast reveals new footage

Announced a couple of weeks ago, Outlast, the survival-horror game from indie studio Red Barrels shows some footage from the Mount Massive Asylum in this 4 minutes long trailer.

Message from Miles Upshur, Investigative Reporter:
I’m risking my life stopping to write this, but the world has to know what I’ve found.

I am currently inside Mount Massive, a supposedly abandoned asylum in Colorado, and I’ve stumbled across an atrocity I can’t put into words. The Murkof Corporation is in the middle of creating something unthinkable here—a malevolence that humanity has yet to experience. I fear for my life, and for mankind, because of what I’m witnessing.

Video of everything I’ve seen so far can be found on this tape. I need to find my way out of this complex, but fortunately I have what I need to capture more footage in the meantime… as long as my camera power lasts, at least.

If you find this note, please spread this video and share the truth. They must be stopped.

Holy hell, that looked incredible! Kind of like a combination of Amnesia and Fear, but scarier than both. As long as it doesn't turn into a shooter like fear, gives you very limited weapons and makes running and hiding viable options as opposed to combat, this could be one the best horror games ever.

Not sure what you would call the video though......concept gameplay? It was clearly not being played, as there was way too much convenient zooming of the camera and turning at just the right times to be coincidence. I do like the breathing and context sensitive hand motions though. I think developers need to realize that for games to be truly scary, they need to combine the terrifying scripted moments with some unscripted ones. Imagine if you just happened to turn around and see something glancing at you before it disappeared...........but it wasn't scripted. I realize that would require a ton of coding that may never be seen, but it would still be awesome.

Fuck sake that was one creepy trailer, watched it in the dark with the headphones cranked and felt a bit uneasy! Good stuff shame it's not coming to consoles.

Damn...I think the moment, when he saw those glowing eyes, I would rather bite my tongue in two to choke by my own blood. It would be better than staying there. :-o Scary. But I still have three top scary games....Thief 1-2 with those zombies and rats or what was that, Undying and of course Call of Cthulhu.

Nice visuals, but not really scary to be honest, the overuse of music kinda spoiled it :/

About the game

What's up?
  • asdfg
    asdfg Now if they could dig up info on some new games that would be more interesting than some specs on an unreleased console with barely any exclusives. (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX What's wrong with E3? With Nintendo and Sony's stuff out there they could snatch up a lot of attention. (37 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Yeah but Phil Spencer seemed unsure when the Scorpio would be fully revealed yet. Would be mistake to do during E3 IMO. (41 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean.. they did a good enough job explaining its content. Won't be too long if they still intend to release it this year. (53 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Yep, until MS reveals the thing themselves, hopefully before E3, it's probably going to be like this. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Digital Foundry jumping on a six month old public white paper is fine. People want the content :P (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @aphex187: At this point I'll be surprised if I play it as much as Bad Company 2 even, but I think it's *much* better than BC2. (1 Hour ago)
