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!

Hopefully that logo is not the most frightening and uncomfortable thing about Outlast. Jeez does that bug out my eyes!!!

Dear Indie Devs:

Please stop making survival, horror, creepy, etc… games.

I want the PS4 to include other genres as well. Creepy Indie games is all we’ve been getting.

Thank you.

+ Mr_Mackwo on February 4th, 2014 at 10:49 am said:

Can’t wait to play this today! It looks like a hybrid of Fatal Frame, Doom 3 (of course minus weapons) and Silent hill 4!

@61 You have to wait for the Playstation Store to update today…

+ skunkgp1 on February 4th, 2014 at 10:51 am said:

Yeah, it’s not showing free for ps plus for me either, I was hoping I could get it from the spin store today so it would be downloaded for me when I get home from college.

This is going to be fun but for some reason the game reminds me of fatal frame. If the only weapon is going to be a camera. I’m so not going to play it with my friend around cause he enjoys watching me play horror game. Friends right?

+ iPocalyptic on February 4th, 2014 at 11:25 am said:

And here I thought I was the only one experiencing this problem, I assume it’ll update in a bit and be free for PSplus subscribers. Either that or someone at sony will eventually realize someone ****** up… Patience is a virtue I need practice in anyway.

+ Emperiux on February 4th, 2014 at 12:01 pm said:

I have just recently checked the PS store, Outlast is up, it currently show that it is a “free” download to us PS plus subscriber’s, but when I go to click download im brought to a screen that tell’s me that I must add funds to buy it, then to download it…WTH Sony!, what’s up with this. I’ve been literally waiting in my seat for this game to be released, to start playing only to be hyped up for “false-advertisement”


97

+ BrianMcGuinness on February 4th, 2014 at 12:04 pm said:

I don’t even understand how some of you can even form a full thought.
“WHEN IS IT COMING?!?! I DON’T SEE IT IN THE STORE!!!!! I’M GOING TO SUE SONY AND EVERY INDIE DEV IF I DON’T GET THIS GAME ASAP!!!”
Can you all just relax and wait for the store to update LIKE IT DOES EVERY SINGLE WEEK? Geez…


98

+ sergiodj3ix on February 4th, 2014 at 12:11 pm said:

Outlast is free for playstation plus members, finally. But when you try to grab it, it says the Playstation Store is under maintenance.

Guess they’re just moving some sticks to get the thing up and running once and for all.

Got mine finally downloading. You just have to just keep trying and it will eventually go through!
