Guild of Guardians
Red Barrels' upcoming co-op survival horror game, The Outlast Trials is set to launch on March 05, 2024, as announced by its developer. It is already available for pre-orders via Steam and Epic Games Store and will be available in both standard and deluxe edition.


Developed and released by Red Barrels, The Outlast Trials is a cooperative first-person psychological survival horror computer game. It is the third game in the Outlast series and acts as a preface to the previous two. Following two delays, The Outlast Trials went live in early access on May 18, 2023, for Microsoft Windows through Steam and the Epic Games Store. Console versions and cross-platform features will follow at the same time as the game's official release.

About the Game​

Red Barrels invites you to experience mind-numbing terror, this time with friends. Whether you go through the trials alone or in teams, if you survive long enough and complete the therapy, Murkoff will happily let you leave… but will you be the same?


Set in the era of the Cold War, human guinea pigs are involuntarily recruited by the good folks at the Murkoff Corporation to test advanced methods of brainwashing and mind control. In a world of distrust, fear, and violence, your morals will be challenged, your endurance tested, and your sanity crushed. All in the name of progress, science, and profit.

Key Game Features​

  • Survive solo or with your friends - All of you are imprisoned within Murkoff's facility as his prisoners. You have the option of working through the trials alone or in groups of two, three, or four players.
  • Run or hide - The main gameplay mechanics are dodging opponents, hiding from them, and attempting to flee in classic Outlast fashion. Murkoff will provide you tools to help you become more stealthy, make escape routes easier, slow down adversaries, and more. To develop those tools, though, you'll need to put in a lot of effort and earn them.
  • Character customization - Select the bonuses, upgrades, and tools that best suit your style of play. Create and personalize a trial patient. During the course of the therapy, your cell serves as your home, which you are free to furnish anyway you like.
  • Investigate - The Murkoff Corporation has kidnapped you to participate in immoral experiments that will alter your mental state and conduct during the Trials. Gather evidence, such as documents and objects, to support Murkoff's malpractice claims against its patients.
