During Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022, developer RedBarrels unveiled the latest teaser for The Outlast Trials. The new Outlast World experience will also be under closed beta testing from October 28, 2022, over the Halloween holiday.
The Outlast Trials is a four-player co-op survival horror game set during the Cold War. Players are individuals who are imprisoned in a secret facility and must endure relentless physical and emotional agony at the hands of the series’ key protagonists. The challenge is to keep your sanity throughout this ordeal. According to the creator, the game will be a monument to the studio’s initiative to push itself with each new version.
Although not much has been released about the game, the makers have been quite open about their thought process and inspiration for each element of its game whether it’s sound, music, characters, storytelling, or the psychological aspect of the horror game.
You can visit RedBarrels’ official YouTube site to watch a variety of interesting videos directly from the developers. An example of one is given here. It will not only provide insight into what to expect from the game, but also into the developers’ philosophy and what they are attempting to portray through the action of The Outlast Trials. Another plus point is that you’ll be able to brace yourself before going in.
