Just in time to get you prepped for Halloween, Red Barrels will be releasing the Outlast 2 demo on Steam, Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4 today — with a catch. The Outlast 2 demo will only be available until Tuesday, November 1st.
The demo will give you a taste of what Red Barrels has been working on, with more features and environments set to be unveiled in the coming months. While Outlast 2 follows the events in the original Outlast, there’s also a comic book series that bridges the gap between the two games. So far, two out of five issues of The Murkoff Account have been released, and you can check them out on the Red Barrels website.
You are Blake Langermann, a cameraman working with your wife, Lynn. The two of you are investigative journalists willing to take risks and dig deep to uncover the stories no one else will dare touch. You’re following a trail of clues that started with the seemingly impossible murder of a pregnant woman known only as Jane Doe.
The investigation has lead you miles into the Arizona desert, to a darkness so deep that no one could shed light upon it, and a corruption so profound that going mad may be the only sane thing to do.
Check out some of the creepy screenshots as well.
