Comprised of industry veterans who have worked on such game franchises as Prince of Persia, Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, and Uncharted, Montreal-based indie studio Red Barrels today announced their first title, Outlast, a survival-horror experience coming to PC digital download in 2013.
In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, has been operating in strict secrecy… until now.
Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line being science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.
