“Easily one of the scariest games I've ever played”
9.5/10 – Bloody Disgusting

“"...what (Outlast) can definitely claim to be is a great game... It’ll also intrigue, terrify and surprise you. Outlast is not an experiment in how games can be scary, it’s an exemplification...”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Outlast is the perfect nightmare. ...it's absolutely petrifying. I love it”
4.5/5 – Joystiq

About This Game

Hell is an experiment you can't survive in Outlast, a first-person survival horror game developed by veterans of some of the biggest game franchises in history. As investigative journalist Miles Upshur, explore Mount Massive Asylum and try to survive long enough to discover its terrible secret... if you dare.

Synopsis:

In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, the asylum has been operating in strict secrecy… until now.

Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.

Outlast is a true survival horror experience which aims to show that the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind.

Features:

  • True Survival Horror Experience: You are no fighter - if you want to survive the horrors of the asylum, your only chance is to run... or hide
  • Immersive Graphics: AAA-quality graphics give players a detailed, terrifying world to explore
  • Hide and Sneak: Stealth-based gameplay, with parkour-inspired platforming elements
  • Unpredictable Enemies: Players cannot know when - and from where - one of the asylum’s terrifying inhabitants will finally catch up to them
  • Real Horror: Outlast’s setting and characters are inspired by real asylums and cases of criminal insanity

Warning:

Outlast contains intense violence, gore, graphic sexual content, and strong language. Please enjoy.

One of the most terrifying video game experiences. i had to consistently put it down and take breaks in order to keep playing. it was so scary. The expansion was great too! Definitely check it out! Can't wait for Outlast 2 to come out at some point late this year or early next.

10/10!!! i've recommended it to all my friends!

Outlast is a tense and disturbing game where you play as the most dedicated pacifist that ever lived while trying to survive and escape a mental hospital turned scientific experiment.

The tortured patients roaming the premises will persistently hunt you down while you simulate the humble and defenseless Mouse. Nay, even a Mouse will bite if cornered. All the player can do is try to push past and run away or stand there and be beaten or stabbed to death... This minor frustration is to be expected however as if you were given the ability to fight back then the deranged lunatics stalking you would be a nuisance at best. The purpose of the game is to invoke feelings of tension, shock and fear in the player and it succeeds spectacularly at that.
While perhaps lacking replayability, the first run through is well worth the price of admission. The level of immersion is phenomenal and the DLC is surprisingly even better than the base game itself.

Outlast is a horrifying and brutal game best played with the lights out and surround sound on. It may feel like a bit of an endurance marathon for some towards the end and the helpessness can become frustrating or just plain pathetic at times, but for those seeking an immersive horror experience, it is well worth picking up this little gem.

By far, one of the scariest games I've ever played, and hands-down one of the most memorable gaming experiences I've had in a long time.

A little repetitive at parts, but all-in-all, great game.

Eu era Ateu, mas depois que joguei esse game eu me converti. A cada instante eu pedia a Deus pra me dar forças e tranquilidade pra aguentar Outlast até o fim.

I was atheist , but then I played this game I now believe in Jesus Christ and God . Every time I asked God to give me strength and peace to endure Outlast to the end.

Main game is around 3-4 hours and the DLC is around 1-2 hours.
This game is truely an amazing horror game and will totally disturb you!
my only issue is that this game is way too high of a price for only 4-6 hours of gameplay.
The main game should be around 10-15$ and the dlc should be around 5$
But that is not too big of a deal because It goes on sale pretty often.
I highly recommend this for horror fans!

1) Increase jump height
2) Get to Administration block save where chris spawns and you have to hide in locker
3) Decrease his movement speed to 10
4)Run away and jump up to the window he threw you into
5) jump back down
6) Another Chris Walker has spawned along with the first one
7) Repeat until I have 19 Chris Walkers in the same hallway
8) Increase his walking speed to normal and my jump height back to normal
9) Survive for as long as I can with 19 Chris Walkers after me

11/10 great game

This game scared the living crap out of me, i recommend playing it only at night with headphones, it really adds up to the entire atmosphere. I really like to watch old scary movies, and this game reminded me of that. So if you want to know if you can scream like a little girl definitely try this game :)
