Outlast 2 was released on April 25, 2017 by Red Barrels who also developed the game. Outlast 2 is a first person horror survival game.

Outlast 2 is the sequel to the acclaimed survival horror game Outlast. Set in the same universe as the first game, but with different characters and a different setting, Outlast 2 is a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets.

Outlast 2 is a lot more story driven than the first game. You are put in the shoes of a journalist Blake Langermann. The game uses a flashback to develop the story It’s more of a run for your life action game. Movement is fluid but the scares are scripted. The atmosphere of the game is excellent.

Langermann and his wife Lynn are investigating the death of a pregnant young woman near an Arizona desert. After their helicopter crashes, Blake awakens to find Lynn missing and their pilot crucified to a cross. A couple of cults are out to get Langerman who has to run for his life.

Following various clues, the player eventually finds his way into the desert where he find a corruption so foul that insanity may be the only recourse.

Unlike Outlast where a player could sneak around, Outlast 2 has the player running to get away. The ending is sequel bait.

The game features Steamworks with achievements.
