Dubbed as The Outlast Trials, developer Red Barrels have announced that their latest entry in the series will focus on multiplayer, allowing for a 4 player survival experience. You can view the teaser trailer below:
The Outlast Trials will not serve as a direct sequel to the previous games but will still exist in the same universe. You can check out the overview of the game below:
Set in the era of the Cold War, human guinea pigs are involuntarily recruited by the good folks at the Murkoff Corporation to test advanced methods of brainwashing and mind control. In a world of distrust, fear, and violence, your morals will be challenged, your endurance tested, and your sanity crushed. All in the name of progress, science, and profit. Red Barrels invites you to experience mind-numbing terror, this time with friends.
Work together and maybe you’ll survive The Outlast Trials. It’s always better to shit your pants in good company.
The Outlast Trials is scheduled to release for the PC via Steam and Epic Games in 2021, no specific launch date has been provided.
