Press release:

Hell is an Experiment You Can’t Survive in OUTLAST, Coming Next Year from Red Barrels Games

New Independent Survival-Horror Title Coming to PC in 2013, Teaser Trailer Released

MONTREAL & MOUNT MASSIVE, COLORADO – October 17,2012 - 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.

Founded in Montreal by industry veterans from some of the biggest game franchises in history, including Prince of Persia, Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, and Uncharted, Red Barrels is an independent game studio focused on creating unforgettable single-player games. Outlast is their first title, a true survival-horror experience which aims to show that the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind. Outlast will be coming to PC digital download in 2013.

“There are already a lot of great games out there about terrifying monsters that eat brains; we want Outlast’s to be scary because you’ll know the enemies you face still have them,” said Philippe Morin, co-founder of Red Barrels.

“Our team has a lot of previous experience creating big, blockbuster games,” said co-founder David Chateauneuf. “We’re all really excited to see what kind of fear-based emotional rollercoaster we can build on our own!”

When asked for comment, a spokesperson for the Murkoff Corporation responded: “Murkoff does not comment on speculation and rumors, especially ones started by conspiracy theorists and urban myth chasers.”

About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Most games don't.. I'd call it a success. (22 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The fact that R6 has grown since its launch shows that it's generally well liked. It had a lowkey launch and it has grown. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The love/hate thing is every game's audience. Play any game enough and you'll find that most of its players are its biggest critics. (26 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks also not just R6, but Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, all of it (28 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks speaking on Ubi as a whole, it's not uncommon for Uplay to be entirely down across all platforms. This includes online play on PS4 and X1. Not just PC (28 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks I think it could have been. Certainly a missed opportunity healthy or not. Most the population I play with has a love/hate viewpoint on the game (31 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The game has a very healthy player base anyway. It's not as big as Battlefield or COD.. but it was never going to be. (33 minutes ago)
