Halloween is just days away, making this the perfect time to reveal a horror game that many will be looking forward to. Prepare to be scared all over again with Outlast 2, sequel to one of the scariest games in recent years.
A cross in a horror game is never a good sign, and one that is revealed to be upside down is even worse. The fact it is on fire is always a bad sign. Other than that, and the voice over we don’t have much to go by, but for the description from makers Red Barrel:
“No conflict is ever black and white. But once the dust has settled, the victors get to decide who was right and who was wrong. Who is good and who is evil.
Human nature pushes us to extremes of violence and depravity, which we then justify by divine inspiration and a promise of paradise to come. Horror rises from desperation and blind faith. OUTLAST 2 will test your faith, pushing players to a place where going mad is the only sane thing to do.”
The fact that the game will test your faith, and features religious iconography does hint at where the game is going, and it will be an interesting subject. Hopefully Red Barrel remember what was so effective in the first game and adapt that for the new setting. Just a shame that it won’t be out in time for this Halloween, though it may be a good excuse to revisit the original?
