Outthink, outlive: Outlast dated for September

Outthink, outlive: Outlast dated for Septemberoutlast

outlast

have announced that their creepy-looking survival horror title, , will be spooking your socks off on 4 September.

Outlast casts you as Miles Upshur, a reporter who has apparently never seen a horror movie and therefore jumps at the chance to wander into the abandoned Mount Massive Asylum, in which terrible things happened. Alone and with only a video camera’s night-vision mode to help him out, Upshur has to try to find out what happened there. And, y’know, live to tell the tale. Which might be harder than it sounds, because the abandoned asylum doesn’t quite appear to be empty…

It all sounds very Amnesia or Clock Tower in terms of being focused on running and hiding from the hostiles rather than blasting them in half with shotguns, which is all for the better as far as I’m concerned. Outlast will be creepy-crawling its way onto Steam on 4 September and will cost you $19.99, which seems like a pretty cheap way to give yourself a heart attack.

I categorically refuse to play this. Peter?
