The Outlast Trials Review – Don’t Go Alone

The Outlast Trials on Xbox Series S

It has been over 10 years since Outlast began horrifying gamers with its creepy stealth horror gameplay and bone-shattering jumpscares. This latest instalment is the first Outlast game to include a multiplayer option. Well, I say “option” but going into the Trials without a team is not for the faint-hearted.

The last time I played Outlast was in the summer of 2014, so I had a bit of an idea of what to expect. Of course, this doesn’t mean you must play previous Outlast games before trying The Outlast Trials, far from it. The game’s intro gives you a good sense of what you are getting yourself into anyway: dark, disorienting, violent, and disturbing, all the good stuff you would want from a psychological horror. I had quite forgotten just how horrific Outlast could be and couldn’t wait to begin! How naive.
