a Product Description Players can expect “mind-numbing terror,” says The Outlast Trials, and that’s exactly what we see in the game’s latest trailer. Murkoff Corporation’s use of humans as laboratory rats causes a lot of blood to be shed saw-like test. In some cases, the trials just look like torture and murder.
The game looks highly graphic, yet also compares to BioShock’s tone and storytelling conventions. It will be interesting to see how the narrative ties all these wild experiments together. Outlast Trials is designed to be both a single-player and cooperative experience. The player is apparently free to explore at certain points, and appears to rely on tools such as traps to fight back and escape. In a sequence, we see two players helping each other up to the high ground.
The footage concludes with news of a short closed beta running from October 28 to November 1. No other release date news was shared.
