The sequel to 2013’s house of survival horror, Outlast, finally has a release window. A new teaser trailer accompanying the announcement also promises to bring the unholy side of evil to the mix.
The teaser trailer most prominently features a burning upside down cross slowly coming into view. Referred to as the Cross of St. Peter or Petrin Cross, the upside down cross is commonly regarded as an anti-authority or anti-Christian icon. The original Outlast had its fair share of religious iconography, particularly the insane priest Father Martin, who blindly worshipped the ghostly Walrider.
The voice heard in the teaser also seems to be reciting portions of verses found in the Book of Revelations in the Christian Bible, stating “She made all nations drink the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever.” It seems players can expect religious fanaticism to play some role in the game.
Outlast II is scheduled to release in Fall 2016 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Check out the full teaser trailer below.
