Red Barrels Launches The Outlast Trials, a Cooperative Multiplayer Horror Experience

Red Barrels, the indie development studio behind the terrifying Outlast franchise, has released a new cooperative multiplayer take on its critically acclaimed series. The Outlast Trials is now available for digital download on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.

The release of The Outlast Trials "V1" marks the culmination of valuable player feedback received since its Early Access launch on PC in May 2023, with over 1.6 million copies sold worldwide. Red Barrels has continually evolved the game based on this feedback, introducing fresh content, significant enhancements, new Trials, character customization options, weekly challenges, controller support, and cross-play between PC, PlayStation, and Xbox gamers.

About The Outlast Trials:

Set in 1959, The Outlast Trials explores the sinister operations of the Murkoff Corporation, which uses a recruitment agency to identify potential test subjects for its experiments in creating sleeper agents. These "Reagents" undergo brutal physical and psychological trials until they are conditioned for perfect obedience and ready to be released back into society, awaiting activation.

Players assume the role of one of these untrained civilians and can fully customize their appearance and their cells in the Sleep Room—a space where Reagents can interact with other test subjects, play chess, arm wrestle, or simply unwind between Murkoff's harrowing experiments.

A Word from the Red Barrels Team:

"Outlast has always been about survival despite overwhelming horror. You may just barely make it out alive, but you'll never be the same again. For The Outlast Trials, we asked ourselves: 'What if players were trapped in the horror together?' It was a long journey to deliver that experience at the level of quality Red Barrels demands. We needed to make something scary, thrilling, funny, and shocking."
