Red Barrels Games announces Outlast"True survival-horror" from Ubisoft and Naughty Dog vets.
Red Barrels, a Montreal-based independent game studio founded by industry veterans who’ve worked on Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell, and Uncharted, have announced the development of Outlast, a “true survival–horror experience” which aims to “show the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind” on PC digital download in 2013.
Here’s what it’s about:
In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, has been operating in strict secrecy… until now.
Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line being science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.
“There are already a lot of great games out there about terrifying monsters that eat brains; we want Outlast’s to be scary because you’ll know the enemies you face still have them,” said Philippe Morin, co-founder of Red Barrels.
