Hello, everyone! I’m finally back from my little hiatus, and instead of talking about books, today I’ll be talking about a game I’m really, really excited about: Outlast II. Around this time last year, I bought the first game of this horror-survival series called Outlast. It totally scared the shit out of me with its jump scares and everything, but there was something so original, amazing and bizarre around the story that I ended up loving it way more than I was supposed to. I mean, it’s a horror game, YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO love horror games that make you scream every five minutes! But anyway, if you’d like to hear/read my thoughts on the first game and the dlc whistleblower, you can check them out here: Outlast 1 | Whistleblower.
Developer: Red Barrels
Publisher: Red Barrels
Release Date: April 25th, 2017.
Webpage: Outlast 2
Plot: You are Blake Langermann, a cameraman working with your wife Lynn. The two of you are investigative journalists willing to take risks and dig deep to uncover the stories no one else will dare touch. You’re following the trail of clues that started with the seemingly impossible murder of a pregnant woman known only as Jane Doe. The investigation has lead you miles into the Arizona desert, to a darkness so deep that no one could shed light upon it, and a corruption so profound that going mad may be the only sane thing to do.
Gameplay: 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 journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets. No conflict is ever black and white.
Reasons why I’m excited about it:
- Why wouldn’t I be excited? Hello, Outlast sequel!
- Curiosity: the universe may be the same, but the characters and the setting are different and I’m really excited to get to know the new characters and explore this new setting, which I’m pretty sure will make me scream and jump since day 1.
- Need answers: I need to know what happened, what is happening and what will happen, aka the story! I loved the bizarre stories from the first game and the dlc and I sure am ready for another one!
- I’m ready: to scream like a little girl!
Are you guys ready to have nightmares once again, with a new little pig?
Thanks for passing by & reading! x
