Red Barrels’ Outlast is, to me, the scariest game of 2013. It may even be the scariest game I’ve ever played, but I’ve played a lot of great ones, so that’s a difficult crown to bestow it with. If you didn’t grab it when it came to PC last September, you’ll soon be getting a second chance when Outlast makes its way to the PlayStation 4 sometime next month. We don’t have an exact release date yet, so a somewhat nebulous February window will have to do for now. That’s okay, I’m patient.
If you’re a subscriber to PS Plus — I hope you do if you own a PS4, because it’s totally worth it — Outlast will be completely free. No word on its expansion, Whistleblower, but I do hope it remedies some of the issues I had with the original game.
