Are the hairs on the back of your neck standing up? No? Well, they will be. Outlast 2 is out tomorrow (25 April), and its latest trailer shouldn’t be watched without this handy diaper. Aside from the fantastic demo that was released a while ago, this trailer gives us the most detailed look at the world of Outlast 2 yet.
Another trailer showing off Outlast Trinity, which includes all things Outlast in one package, is also pretty horrifying.
First, here’s a look at Outlast Trinity, which includes Outlast, its Whistleblower DLC, as well as Outlast 2 on a single disc. They say it’ll be “available beginning April 25 for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and PC”.
While snippets of Outlast 2 can be seen in the footage above, the standalone trailer for the game goes much, much more in depth, and it’s ominous AF.
“As journalists, you and your wife have a reputation for taking risks and digging into the stories no one else dares to touch, but this time you may have gone too far,” reads its description. “Your investigation of a seemingly impossible murder has lead you deep into the Arizona desert, and into a darkness so wicked that no light could ever shine upon it.”
“No conflict is ever black and white. But once the dust has settled, the victors get to decide who was right and who was wrong. Who is good and who is evil. Human nature pushes us to extremes of violence and depravity, which we then justify by divine inspiration and a promise of paradise to come. Horror rises from desperation and blind faith. Outlast 2 will test your faith, pushing players to a place where going mad is the only sane thing to do.”
Outlast Trinity is expected to cost $39.99 (R520), while standalone, digital copies of Outlast 2 will set you back $29.99 (R390).
