All Articles: Outlast II

Xbox Store Today: Outlast II, Romance of Three Kingdoms XIII, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, more

Prepare to terrify yourself with today’s Xbox Games Store update, as Red Barrels has released Outlast II for the Xbox One. The sequel to the first-person horror adventure introduces a new set of characters for players to meet and a weird cult for them to explore. Will Blake Langermann and his wife, Lynn, make it out alive? Or will the disappearance of these investigative journalists become the story?

A nice variety of sequels are also be available to download today for the Xbox One including Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII, and Syberia 3.

If none of those games interest you, you might be interested to learn that Telltale Games will continue The Walking Dead: A New Frontier on the Xbox One today with Episode 4: Thicker Than Water.

More information about all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

What Remains of Edith Finch, Dragon Quest Heroes II, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, more added to PS Store

The PlayStation Store is bursting with new releases this week, so let’s not waste any time…

We start things off with What Remains of Edith Finch, a first-person narrative adventure for the PS4 from Giant Sparrow, the development team behind The Unfinished Swan. Giant Sparrow thinks of the game as a “collection of strange tales,” and players will need to explore a colossal mansion to learn the secrets of the Finch family.

If you’d rather whack things with a giant sword, PS4 owners will also get the chance to go medieval this week with the release of Square Enix/Koei Tecmo’s Dragon Quest Heroes II and Yacht Club’s Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment. More modern weaponry is available in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, a new combat simulation for the PS4 that offers an open world and gives players the ability to tackle missions in any way they choose.

A terrifying trio of new games will also be available to download for the PS4 this week. Deathstate is a “single-stick shooter” with retro-styled Lovecraftian monsters; Little Nightmares is a moody platformer from Bandai Namco; and Outlast II is a followup to Red Barrels’s first-person frightener. And speaking of horrors, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Episode 4: Thicker Than Water is also available to download for the PS4.

Finally this week, the Syberia series returns for the first time in more than a decade with a PS4 release for Syberia 3.

You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break. (more…)
