About this game
Developer: Red Barrels
Content Rating: Mature
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.

Red Barrels knows how to keep players on their toes. The game’s heavily-scripted scenarios can annoy if you don’t get the mechanic at play immediately, and are thus forced to repeat a section multiple times, but generally the formula continues to work in Outlast 2. This is survival horror at its most base level, where you are a mostly defenseless layperson caught up in a horrifying ordeal, who would feel lucky just to escape with your life. The wait was indeed worth it, and Outlast 2 should be on the must-play list of horror fans everywhere.
Horrific in completely the wrong way, Outlast 2 is a night-vision journey into frustration. An intriguing story just can’t save the infuriating misery that awaits.
Outlast II always kept me guessing and anytime I thought I had a good idea of where the story was going to go, something more gruesome than anything that came before would befall Blake. For two straight days, I was too afraid to put down the controller until I could see the credits roll and know if I was finally safe. By then, I would know the true horrors of Father Knoth and what would happen to Blake, Lynn, and their childhood friend Jessica. Despite some pacing issues with the lengthy chase sequences and poor battery life on Blake’s camera, Outlast II was utterly horrifying from beginning to end.
