As previously teased, there’s a new Outlast title in development – and this one will feature co-op. While not a direct sequel, developer Red Barrels promises that this instalment is set in the same “thrilling universe”. The press release explains: “The Outlast Trials will allow players to face the horrors of the trials by themselves or cooperate with up to three other test subjects. After all, it’s always better to sh*t your pants with some friends.”

The title takes place during the Cold War, and has just entered full production. “Our team is hard at work creating a new experience that will bring fear and anxiety to millions of players, whether they go through the experiments alone or with friends,” said studio co-founder David Chateauneuf.
