The new installment in the Red Barrels saga is in early access on Steam, and has already conquered half a million players with its twisted trials.
As strange as it may seem, sometimes we like to suffer a little. No, we’re not masochists, but there’s something charming about escaping from psychopaths, overcoming tricky tests, and experiencing terror firsthand. And in that, the Outlast saga is one of the best.
After going through a lot of fear with Outlast and its sequel, Red Barrels bets on a new concept: multiplayer terror based on tests and challenges “a la Saw”. Are you up for this new experience?
Our colleague Daniel Quesada already shared his impressions with us a few days ago. We don’t want to reveal anything specific to you, but The Outlast Trials promises to be one of the great horror games of the year.
It’s still in early access on Steam, but the third installment of Outlast has already won over a lot of gamers. Red Barrels appreciates the support of the community.
