Red Barrels Games is a newly-formed studio founded in Montreal by industry veterans from some of the biggest game franchises in history, including Prince of Persia, Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, and Uncharted. Their goal is to create “unforgettable single-player games”. You can check their official website for all the informations.
The first game developed by the studios, Outlast, is a survival-horror, it will be available for download from Steam in the summer of 2013. “There are already a lot of great games out there about terrifying monsters that eat brains; we want Outlast’s to be scary because you’ll know the enemies you face still have them,” said co-founder Philippe Morin.
The title will take us into the shoes of Miles Upshur, a journalist who went in an old mental hospital to investigate the nature of the experiments made in previous years by a mysterious group of international research: once arrived there, the poor Miles enters, however, in a real nightmare inhabited by scary creatures who, for whatever reason, take shape from its scariest nightmares to chase him through the rooms of a huge castle, from the basement to the icy terrace.
The title is very promising from what we can see in the teaser trailer. Check it out below.
