The Outlast Trials Available Now for PC, PlayStation and Xbox

Red Barrels, the indie development studio, has today launched a thrilling survival horror cooperative multiplayer take on its critically-acclaimed and terrifying Outlast franchise… The Outlast Trials is now available for digital download on PC, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox® Series X|S and Xbox One®.

The Outlast Trials “V1” release today is the culmination of invaluable player feedback received since its Early Access launch on PC in May 2023, with over 1.6 million copies sold worldwide. From fresh content and significant enhancements, new Trials and character customization options, weekly challenges, controller support, and cross-play between PC, PlayStation and Xbox gamers, Red Barrels has continually evolved what was already a terrifying survival horror experience.

About The Outlast Trials
It’s 1959, and the trans-national Murkoff Corporation is using a recruitment agency to identify potential test subjects to turn into the perfect sleeper agents. These “Reagents” are forced to undergo terrible physical and psychological trials, until they have been conditioned for perfect obedience and are ready to be released back into society, waiting to be triggered at an opportune time.

Players take on the role of one of these untrained civilians, and can fully customize their look, as well as their cells in the Sleep Room – the area where Reagents can meet the unique denizens, unwind in between Murkoff’s harrowing experiments, or face off against other test subjects with chess or arm wrestling.

A Word from the Red Barrels Team:
“Outlast has always been about survival despite overwhelming horror. You may just barely make it out alive, but you’ll never be the same again. For The Outlast Trials, we asked ourselves: ‘What if players were trapped in the horror together?’

“It was a long journey to deliver that experience at the level of quality Red Barrels demands. We needed to make something scary, thrilling, funny, and shocking. We needed to make something players could enjoy either alone or with friends. And we needed to make something players could return to again and again. We hope you enjoy and suffer our nightmare.”

The Outlast Trials is now available digitally for PC, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox® Series X|S and Xbox One®
