'The Outlast Trials' Goes Gold

by Rainier on Feb. 12, 2024 @ 7:19 p.m. PST

The Outlast Trials is a survival-horror game you can play by yourself or with other players online. You'll have to survive the twisted, sadistic and bizarre experiments of the Murkoff Corporation, alone or in a group up to four players.

Hell is an experiment you can't survive in Outlast, a first-person survival horror game series developed by veterans of some of the biggest game franchises in history. Critically acclaimed for its immersive atmosphere, sound design and full-frontal scares, the series soon became the leading horror game experience of its generation. The rules of the Outlast universe are simple – run, hide or die trying.

Outlast, the original release, begins with an intriguing anonymous tip that leads you to explore the dark heart of Mount Massive Asylum, home to the secret experiments of the Murkoff Corporation. Whistleblower, the DLC continuation, tells the backstory to the atrocities found in Outlast and stretches past the events of the first game to show the final bloody chapter in Mount Massive Asylum's story. Outlast 2 places you deep in the wilderness where you discover the residents of Temple Gate and a corruption so profound that going mad may be the only sane thing to do.

While not a direct sequel to the other critically acclaimed Outlast titles in the series, The Outlast Trials will be set in the same thrilling universe: more precisely, right in the middle of the Cold War era where players take on the role of test subjects abducted by the shadowy Murkoff Corporation.

Developer Red Barrels announced that The Outlast Trials has gone gold and is on track for its PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One launch scheduled for March 5, 2024.

"Thank you to all our console players for their patience and to our Early Access Reagents for their time and feedback as we worked on Trials leading to the full launch! We will see you all in the Sleep Room soon!"

Imprisoned in a secret Murkoff facility, players will be thrust into a series of physical and mental ordeals, tormented by iconic characters, and challenged alone or in teams to survive with their sanity intact. In a world of distrust, fear, and violence, your morals will be challenged, your endurance tested, and your sanity crushed. All in the name of progress, science, and profit.

The Outlast Trials will allow players to face the horrors of the trials by themselves or cooperate with up to three other test subjects. After all, it's always better to shit your pants with some friends!

The Outlast Trials is a terrifying game set in the same universe as the previous titles, scheduled for release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam / Epic Games Store) on March 5, 2024.
