Red Barrels has just unleashed a teaser for Outlast 2, the sequel to the 2013 well received survival horror game. It takes place in a new setting with new charaters. The developer expects to release it in Fall 2016.
Outlast 2 – NEW TEASER
One year ago, Red Barrels announced that they were in development on the second instalment in their Outlast series. Today, they released their very first teaser for Outlast 2.
Shot in first-person, it opens on a surface engulfed in flames, a cross. The camera shifts a little and it now looks like the cross is upside down, symbolic of the antichrist. The character then activates the night vision function and suddenly we see that a dozen pairs of eyes surround the cross.
The creators of the game describe Outlast 2 as “a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets.”
“No conflict is ever black and white. But once the dust has settled, the victors get to decide who was right and who was wrong. Who is good and who is evil. Human nature pushes us to extremes of violence and depravity, which we then justify by divine inspiration and a promise of paradise to come. Horror rises from desperation and blind faith. OUTLAST 2 will test your faith, pushing players to a place where going mad is the only sane thing to do.” explains Philippe Morin, co-founder of Red Barrels.
Red Barrels has confirmed that Outlast 2 will take place in a new setting with new characters. Signature features from Outlast, like the night vision camera, will make a comeback in the new game.
“We have even more surprises and I can’t wait to tell you all the ways we’re going to make Outlast 2 gamers suffer”, adds co-founder, David Chateauneuf.
The official launch of Outlast 2 is planned for fall 2016.
But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (6 Hours ago)
Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (6 Hours ago)
@Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (6 Hours ago)
the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (7 Hours ago)
and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (13 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (13 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (13 Hours ago)
