The Outlast Trials Announced, Focuses on Multiplayer

Red Barrels Games has announced The Outlast Trials, the next game in their mutilation simulator franchise.

The new game is focused on multiplayer, with up to four players “facing the horrors of the trials” during the “middle of the Cold War era.” Neither a release window or development platforms were announced.

“We are proud to reveal the title and the first image of the game to our great community and fans,” Red Barrels co-founder David Chateauneuf said in a press release. “Our team is hard at work creating a new experience that will bring fear and anxiety to millions of players, whether they go through the experiments alone or with friends.”

Chateauneuf added, “Now we’ve done our proof of concept, it is time focus on content creation, variety… and gore.”

Here’s a brief blurb on the game:

The world of Outlast is a true survival horror experience which aims to show that the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind… and Red Barrels! Whilst not a direct sequel to the other critically acclaimed Outlast titles in the series, The Outlast Trials will be set in the same thrilling universe: more precisely, right in the middle of the Cold War era. The Outlast Trials will allow players to face the horrors of the trials by themselves or cooperate with up to three other test subjects. After all, it’s always better to shit your pants with some friends!

The Outlast Trials is still in the early stages of production and more news will be announced soon. Red Barrels has been working on developing the title for months and is now ramping up the production process.
