'Outlast 3' Could Be Coming, As Developers Tease Announcement

PlayStation recently announced the two free PS4 games that subscribers to the PS Plus service can get their hands on in November, and one of the juicy pair is the much-loved survival horror sequel Outlast 2 - a frightening first-person adventure in which you journey into a remote rural community to save your wife from a twisted cult.

Any excuse to replay the nightmarish Outlast 2 is okay in my book, but it turns out this particular game's inclusion in the PS Plus November lineup might not be a mere coincidence.

Outlast developer Red Barrels recently took to Twitter to tease an impending announcement, suggesting that a new entry in the horror series might well be unveiled soon. Take a look for yourself below.

The green hue of the image is an unmistakable visual reference to the aesthetic of the first two Outlast games, which saw you running around for much of the run-time trying not to mess your trousers as you peer into dark corners armed with little more than your camcorder's night vision mode.

The actual image itself - what appears to be a man's hand grabbing a woman's hand - could potentially be a cheeky hint that the next game (if indeed it's a game that's being teased) could feature multiplayer of some kind. I'll admit that's me reaching a bit, but we've really not got too much else to go on right now so give me a break.

It's certainly true that Outlast 2 didn't quite hit the mark in the same way that its predecessor did, often feeling like it was trying a little too hard to be disturbing in some places where the first game managed to terrify fairly effortlessly.

Hopefully Red Barrels has a handle on what worked and what didn't work in its first sequel, because I think we can all agree that there's certainly more than enough room for a new Outlast game on the scene. I'd just rather it played a little more like the first game than the second.

If you're a PS Plus subscriber and fancy checking Outlast 2 (or Nioh) out, both games will be available to download from the PlayStation Store from November 5 right through to December 3. Alternatively, you could just go to a store and buy it. Like we used to back in the old days.
