Survival Thriller Gets September Release Date

Red Barrels is getting ready to unleash its terrifying first-person survival horror title Outlast on an unsuspecting world. The game scared a number of E3 attendees, even reportedly causing one person demoing the title to faint.

In a gameplay trailer that we posted late last year, you can see how the game uses light and dark, a video camera's night vision, and sound to create the freakish atmosphere of Mount Massive Asylum. We also conducted a video interview with Red Barrel's Philippe Morin, and sampled the title for ourselves at PAX East.

You'll be able to see just how scary it is come September 4, when it becomes available on PC for $19.99. To celebrate the announcement of the release date, Red Barrels has shared some new screenshots.

  • Someone fainted? You expect me to believe that?
  • Looking pretty spooky. It's been way too long since we've had a new, truly terrifying game come out so I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on this!

  • I have a love-hate relationship with Horror games. I'd probably pick this up if it weren't so expensive.
  • Is it coming out on Steam or some other distributor? And will it have controller support?

  • Isn't there a PS4 version coming later this year too? At least thats what I thought.
  • I saw the gameplay video of people playing the game with the lights off and using headphones...finally people are playing horror games correctly.
  • And when it's released and you they get the money they need, they can start developing it for console! :D
  • Hahaha! Someone fainted? That is embarrassing if it is true.

  • Im waiting for PS4, but it looks so cool
  • I'm pretty stoked for this game. Another game to look forward to in September.

  • Isn't this made by former Assassin's Creed devs?

  • Looks like a feral ghoul from fallout 3 .
  • Can't wait for this game!

  • This hurts my soul to know it's only available for PC.
  • This game doesn't seem special at all. In all the gameplay I've seen, all the scares are just jump-scares. Amnesia got it right because it didn't have to rely solely on startling the player.
  • Let me Guess???????? PC will get the game for $19.99 and sell 200 copies, and consoles will get it for $59.99 and sell 10 million copies, pricing between PC and consoles just drives me crazy...i thought the more you sell the cheaper you can sell a item, can they make a game the same way for both, but PC is under after the selling cost,...People cry bout Next Gen prices, but we need to boycott the game prices
  • Don't forget everyone, this was announced for PS4 as well

  • That really looks a lot like Nancy Pelosi.

  • Is that the one where there's no combat, and you're running away all the time? I'm definitely getting this one...and I'll probably hate myself for putting myself through this kind of terror :P.

  • I seriously can't wait to play this! Hopefully it makes me sh*t my pants, I think I'll just wear a diaper.
