One of the most frightening game series’ in recent memory is getting a physical retail bundle, as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (publishers of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, and the more recent Mortal Kombat instalments) and Red Barrels are working together to bring fans Outlast Trinity.
“Red Barrels has made a name for itself in the survival horror genre with the original Outlast game,” said Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment Senior Vice President of Sales in the Americas Kevin Kebodeaux in a press release. “We look forward to working closely with this great group of developers to bring Outlast Trinity to gamers around the world.”
Outlast hit the scene in 2013, and has since been one of the most popular survival horror games on the market, triggering a renewed interest in the genre. Taking players inside an abandoned Colorado Asylum, players were forced to run instead of fight back against the inhabitants of the building. Outlast Whistleblower follows the events of the first game, allowing players return to the Asylum as a different character with very different intentions. Outlast 2 takes a more human approach as two characters follow a trail for a murder, leading them just outside of Arizona. While the anticipated sequel to Outlast was delayed from the end of 2016 to the beginning of 2017, a physical copy of the game seems right to Red Barrels.
“We’ve been lucky to have such an amazing fan base, and none of this would have been possible without their support,” said Red Barrels Co-Founder Philippe Morin in a press release. “Ever since we released Outlast in 2013, a physical version has been one of the top requests, so we’re obviously thrilled to finally give people the entire series in one bundle of terror.”
