Few games shook me the way Outlast did in 2013, so it pleases me greatly that we’re finally getting a sequel next year.
You don't have to be afraid of missing out on Outlast's scream-inducing fun any more, Xbox One fans. It's now available on Microsoft's latest console, Major Nelson announced in a blog post this morning. The terrifying survival horror game made it through our latest revision of the PS4 bests list, so Xbox One owners…
There's a fine line any artist walks when trying to titillate and terrify at the same time. But making video games scary is especially tricky. Repetitive behavior—even when that behavior is running and hiding from flesh-eating monsters—doesn't mesh all that well with the spontaneity required to make someone jump out…

Buckle Up: Outlast's "Whistleblower" DLC is coming to PC and PS4 in April. It'll tell the story of Waylon Park, the source who contacted the protagonist of the main game.

This isn't the usual watch-someone-scream-at-the-jumpy-moments kind of "let's play" videos you're used to on YouTube (though I'll throw in the headphone users beware warning because it's still in there). It's a bunch of friends saying silly things because alcohol and friendship will do that.
When Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and Outlast launched a week apart from each other, I was not going to play them. I’m a wimp when it comes to getting scared, so the idea of subjecting myself to hours of cowering in the dark while terrifying creatures hunted me down? Please, not going to happen.
Public attitudes regarding mental illness are frequently apocryphal and damaging, and a major source of these views is media portrayal of a topic that affects all of us to some extent.
This is Outlast, a first-person, combat-free horror game about investigating an asylum.
We caught a first look at it a couple of weeks back, but here's a longer, better look at Outlast, an upcoming survival horror game from Red Barrels, a new studio made up of former Assassin's Creed, Uncharted and Splinter Cell developers.
