No doubt many of you have been eager for more information about Outlast Trials. It’s true that there’s been little information outside of some teaser footage, behind-the-scenes, and an upcoming documentary. However, there’s some good news round the corner, as it looks as though Red Barrels will be showcasing its upcoming new Outlast game at next week’s Gamescom.
What exactly is going to be shown? That’s not known right now, but a recent tweet from journalist Geoff Keighley confirms that Outlast Trials will be featured during the Open Night Live Event, which starts next Tuesday at 8pm CEST, 7pm BST, 2pm ET, and 11am PT.
You've waited patiently for this one!

For this installment, which doesn’t have an exact release date but is due out this year, Red Barrels is going down a more multiplayer route. While the studio has said the new game will have a solo campaign, it seems as though it’s going to be gunning for a slice of that Dead by Daylight / Phasmophobia pie. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but some may be concerned that it could put emphasis on playing with others when Outlast has traditionally been at its most frightening as a solo experience.
Overall, fans will no doubt be looking forward to Trials finally coming out, as well as what Red Barrels has in store for Gamescom next week. There’s a good chance it could be a new trailer, maybe even some play footage. Whatever content is due to be unveiled, let’s hope the developer gives us a full release date.
