Outlast Out Today: Survival Horror on PS4

Philippe Morin's Avatar + Posted by Philippe Morin on Feb 04, 2014 // Co-Founder, Red Barrels

Hello gamers! I’m Philippe Morin, one of the co-founders of Red Barrels. Our first game, Outlast, is coming to PS4 today, and I’m excited to share that those of you who are PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download it completely for free.

Outlast

Outlast itself is a survival-horror game created by a team of 11 people with one common goal: to scare the *bleep* out of you.

Here’s the story so far…

In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, the facility was recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation. Taking advantage of the Asylum’s history and remote location, they’ve been operating in strict secrecy. That is, they were until the reporter arrived.Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, independent journalist Miles Upshur has broken into the facility, and what he is about to discover inside will walk a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something entirely other. Trapped with nightmares old and new, his only hope of escape will lie with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.

So, in short, you’re a journalist who’s found himself in a very wrong place at the very wrong time. You can’t hope to defend yourself against the mutated patients of the asylum, so you have to sneak, run, and hide… or die. We’ve done our best to create a memorable roller-coaster ride, one that entertains, scares, and leaves you craving more.

Outlast on PS4

In fact, one of the most fun things about watching players make their way through Outlast has been watching the terrified looks on their faces, so we decided to step things up a notch. Newly added on PS4 is a difficulty level we call “insane.” If you feel brave enough to pick this mode, you’ll have very low health, very few batteries, no checkpoints, and no chance to save your game. It’s do or die. Survive or start again.

So here it is – turn off the lights, crank up the sound, and hold tight to your controller, because true horror is coming straight to your console today.

We can’t help if you end up needing new underwear, but if you’ve got any comments or questions please post them below or poke us on Twitter or Facebook. We hope you enjoy the game!

+ Ventus_Fury on February 4th, 2014 at 8:11 am said:

Post says “Today”

Phillipe Morin : “Next Tuesday”

…What? Do you guys write stuff early then it gets posted late?

Outlast. On Remote Play. With earphones. Beneath the blanket. Shivering with terror.
Should I be excited or scared?

Been waiting for this game since I found out it was coming to PS4. Goal is to play in one sitting, late at night, no party chat and surround sound going. It’s going to be awesome.

OBJECTION!

There is a contradiction in your statement just now. Is Outlast coming today or next week? The court will have the truth!

I am totally looking forward to downloading this game and trying this out. Going to be terrified… reminds me of Slender a little bit. Gotta play with the lights completely out, only you and the TV Screen, and the volume cranked up.

@ Veselm – Sounds like you hate video games…

@ Red Barrels – I am pumped! I completed it on PC but can’t wait to play it again on PS4… I am a little disappointed there is no platinum trophy! But, it makes sense… There isn’t a whole lot you could make trophy worthy. GREAT GAME!

Hurry with the update! I’m an impatient human! D:

Morons everywhere. Anyone who has ever been on this site knows that the store doesn’t update til 2pm pst/5pm est. How many morons will it take to know that. Every single week morons are asking the question. Apparently there are many of them

A creepy first-person survival horror game that just happens to come out the day we get 7.1 surround-sound headphone support one PS4?

Serendipitous!
