After last October’s closed beta, you’re probably wondering just when Red Barrels was going to update us on The Outlast Trials. Well, not only will The Outlast Trials be headed to Early Access on Steam and the Epic Games Store., but it’ll be happening this Spring on May 18.
In addition to the Early Access release date, Red Barrels also revealed the closed beta stats for The Outlast Trials. Running from October 28 to November 1, the beta saw almost 1 million players sign up, with those who got access putting in a total of 35 years of play time.
“The Closed Beta was just a taste of what’s to come in The Outlast Trials,” said Philippe Morin, Co-Founder of Red Barrels. “Our first round of willing participants to take part in the trials provided us with some insightful feedback and very interesting data, which we have used to improve the experience.”
A brand new take on the acclaimed survival horror series, The Outlast Trials is set in the same terrifying universe as the previous titles, only this time you can choose to play on your own or with friends in a team of up to four people.
Set in the height of the Cold War era, players take on the role of test subjects abducted by the shadowy Murkoff Corporation. Imprisoned in a secret Murkoff facility, players will be thrust into a series of physical and mental ordeals, tormented by iconic characters, and challenged alone or in teams to survive with their sanity intact.
