The lights are on
We're still in the midst of January's free PlayStation Plus
games, but that hasn't stopped indie developer Red Barrels from giving us an
idea of what's coming next month.
In a post on its official
Facebook page, Red Barrels announced that the PS4 version of Outlast would
be free for PlayStation Plus users in February. Given the game's February 5
release date, we're guessing it will be Sony's first offering of the month.
Outlast released to generally positive reviews last fall.
Ben Reeves characterized the game as a terrifying albeit limited survival
horror experience that will give fans of the genre a weekend of entertainment. Red
Barrels is also currently working
on DLC for the game that features a new protagonist, but so far no release
date has been given.

Here's hoping Microsoft's
ID@Xbox initiative proves equally fruitful, for developers and gamers
