A new trailer for The Outlast Trials has given us our first look at gameplay in the upcoming horror sequel, while also stating that the game will now release in 2022.
The game again takes a rather different approach to the horror genre, as is apparent from the game’s blurb:
Set in the height of the Cold War era, players take on the role of test subjects abducted by the shadowy Murkoff Corporation. Imprisoned in a secret Murkoff facility, players will be thrust into a series of physical and mental ordeals, tormented by iconic characters, and challenged alone or in teams to survive with their sanity intact.
Even with all of this, The Outlast Trials is still set in the same universe as the previous Outlast survival horror games.
The Outlast Trials was first announced in December 2019, with developer Red Barrels saying it was still very early in production. Last June at E3 2020, they then projected that the game would release in 2021, though that target has obviously slipped a bit to 2022 instead.
