A free demo for horror game Outlast 2 launched today on PC and PlayStation 4, letting players sample the upcoming sequel before its release next year.
You don't have forever to download the demo, however, as it will only be available until November 1. The demo will continue to be playable after November 1. An Xbox One version of the Outlast 2 demo was also announced, but it's not showing up on Xbox.com or through the console itself. A Red Barrels representative told GameSpot the demo will be out for Xbox One soon.
You play as Blake Langermann in Outlast 2. You and your wife, Lynn, are investigative journalists who are looking into the "impossible murder" of a pregnant woman. The game is set in the Arizona, where you will uncover some horrible things and a "corruption so profound that going mad may be the only sane thing to do."
Download links for the Outlast 2 demo are available below. We will add a link to the Xbox One version's download page when it becomes available:
Outlast 2 is developed by independent studio Red Barrels, which also made the first game. The studio was founded by developers who worked on the Price of Persia, Uncharted, and Assassin's Creed franchises.
Originally planned to launch at the end of 2016, Outlast 2 was recently delayed to early 2017.
"This is not the type of news we ever want to deliver, but we are so fully committed to the world we've built and to our awesome community that we could not, in good conscience, release a game [whose] limits haven't been tested to the extreme," Red Barrels said about the delay.
