Outlast is moving to a new setting for the sequel after the original mostly took place in Mount Massive Asylum, and it looks just as unsettling.

The two videos below each show four minutes of gameplay that will be familiar to those who played the first game. Much of the action takes through the perspective of a camera with night-vision capabilities. The cornfield footage in particular (the first video below) is especially unsettling as the way the light breaks through the branches creates creepy shapes and masks difficult to identify foes.

Outlast II is planned for release some time this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, though an exact release date has not yet been revealed. For more on the game, which takes place in the same universe as the original Outlast, but follows a different character in a different, setting, head here.
