The horror game reveals are coming out for Halloween, first with Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and now with a hefty new gameplay trailer for Outlast. At least, I think we're looking at gameplay. The recently announced first-person scarefest from Red Barrels is set in Colorado's abandoned Mount Massive Asylum, re-opened in secret shortly before the events of the game.
Players take the role of Miles Upshur, a journalist who decides to investigate the facility after receiving an anonymous tip. The new trailer seems to hint at there being some connection between what's happening at Mount Massive and a top secret post-World War II U.S. initiative to recruit scientists from Nazi Germany.
I'm loving the sense of atmosphere and building tension in this trailer. Can't wait to see what Red Barrels can do with the final game, which is due to arrive for PCs in 2013.
