The first game from Montreal-based Red Barrels is set to be the single-player survival horror game, Outlast. Founded by ex-Ubisofters David Chateauneuf, Philippe Morin and Hugo Dallaire, Outlast features a plot that echoes the early Resident Evil games…
Journalist Miles Upshur breaks into a research facility of the Murkoff Corporation, which formally housed people suffering from mental illnesses. Once inside, he must seek out the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive in order to escape the horror within.
With some Assassin’s Creed alumni developing Outlast, it is no surprise to find the game tackles themes of religion and science, but with more of a horror vibe that calls to mind the trailer for Ubisoft’s own Wii U exclusive, ZombiU.
Outlast is currently scheduled for digital download on PC in 2013, but given the talent and skill involved, it would be great if this crossed over onto consoles.
