new hands-on demo at this year’s PAX Prime in Seattle, where
Outlast will continue to test players’ limits by
pushing the boundaries of survival horror.

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, has been operating in
strict secrecy … until now.
Acting on a tip from an inside 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.
