Outlast, the indie horrorfest about an unlucky journalist stumbling through a crumbling, not-at-all-abandoned insane asylum, did pretty well for itself last year. "Is Outlast scary?" our review asked, in the rhetorical way reviewers like to. "Hell yes." And so it's not surprising (but still very good news) that developer Red Barrels has finally confirmed that a sequel is in the works.

The news came from Red Barrels co-founder Philippe Morin, who told Bloody Disgusting that while it will be some time yet before the game is ready, the studio is working on it. "After shipping the Xbox One version of Outlast, we took some time to analyze our situation and we quickly realized we had at least another horror game in us," he said. "So, yes, we are working on Outlast 2."

Morin didn't reveal anything in the way of details, saying that "part of the fun of playing a horror game is the sense of discovery and progressively understand wtf is going on," but players won't be returning to Mount Massive in the sequel.

"The game will be a survival horror experience and it will take place in the same universe as Outlast, but it will have different characters and a different setting," he said. "We might go back to Mount Massive Asylum one day, but for now we have new ideas and themes we d like to explore and we think we re cooking up something special."

And in this post-E3, Steam Summer Sale world we're currently living in, there are plenty of highlights to be found. And there's no better game to lead off with than Battlefield Hardline before cringing through Outlast and taking it home with a good old-fashioned Team Fortress 2 Shackbattle. Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of June 21, 2014.

The spooky horror game Outlast will get its first downloadable content next week. Titled "Whistleblower," it will hit PC and PlayStation 4 on May 6 for $8.99. It promises another ill-advised trip to Mount Massive Asylum, and a story that shows events after the ones depicted in the game.

I bet he's a hit at parties

Those darn Whistleblowers. Always huffing and puffing until they (whistle) blow entire houses down. Edward Snowden did it to the NSA, which now… remains frighteningly functional, and the main character of prequel DLC Outlast: Whistleblower will do the same to the game’s Asylum, leaving it… frighteningly functional for the main game’s plot. But that’s whistleblowing for you. The only thing it immediately> grinds to a halt is recess. Sometimes. Everything else is a process. Sink into the depths of this post’s madness for a trailer.
