Red Barrels today announced that the highly anticipated survival horror game Outlast is now available on Steam. Frightening previewers since this year’s PAX East, where some attendees were so startled that they jumped through the booth, Outlast follows investigative journalist Miles Upshur as he explores Mount Massive Asylum with his trusty night-vision camera, hoping to break the story of his life.
Game Designer and Red Barrels Co-founder Philippe Morin said:
“Outlast contains intense violence, gore, graphic sexual content, and strong language.”
Inspired by Red Barrels’ true passion for the horror genre and real-life cases of criminal insanity provided by scientific consulting firm Thwacke, Outlast features:
–A True Survival Horror Experience: You are no fighter – if you want to survive the horrors of the asylum, your only chance is to run… or hide
–Immersive Graphics: AAA-quality graphics give players a detailed, terrifying world to explore
–Hide and Sneak: Stealth-based gameplay, with parkour-inspired platforming elements
–Unpredictable Enemies: Players cannot know when – and from where – one of the asylum’s terrifying inhabitants will finally catch up to them
–Real Horror: Outlast’s setting and characters are inspired by real asylums and cases of criminal insanity

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
