Red Barrels, the independent game development studio based in Montreal, today presented the new gameplay trailer for The Outlast Trials during Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022. This whole new take on the Outlast survival horror experience enters a Closed Beta playtest over Halloween weekend, from Friday October 28th to Tuesday November 1st, 2022.
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.
“Last year, we debuted the first gameplay trailer for The Outlast Trials at Opening Night Live, and were overwhelmed by the positive reception,” said David Chateauneuf, Red Barrels co-founder and designer. “So it’s fantastic to be back again this year, and be able to provide a date for when test subjects… sorry, I mean fans, can enter the Closed Beta trials.”
The Red Barrels development team is hard at work to deliver an all-new experience with The Outlast Trials, but with the Outlast flavor fans know and love. Stay tuned for more news and updates on how to sign up for and what to expect from the Closed Beta.
