A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, it has been recently re-opened by the research and charity branch of the transnationalInvestigate the inside of Mount Massive Asylum and live to uncover the mystery. In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors await inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, it has been recently re-opened by the research and charity branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation and operates 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 treads a terrifying line between science, 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 shows that the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind itself. Are you prepared? Expand

    Jump scares may have your heart racing for a few seconds, however, creeping across that darkened courtyard with your batteries running out while something out there wants you tortured and dead will have you on edge until the experience ends.

    It's pure horror, as if you were in an IMAX cinema. It will surround you, and terrify you, especially in the very well crafted first hours. Then it gets a bit repetitive, but it's still an adventure you won't easily forget.

    We would have asked Red Barrels for a little innovation instead of sticking to the new hide & run mechanics, but still, Outlast is an outstanding survival horror that will terrify pretty much everyone.

    It's not the sort of horror that'll stay with you long beyond the credits, not a quiet and subtle creep fest, but a blunt force shocker. And as such it's effective because it's just so damn drastic.

    For the most part, Outlast lives up to its reputation. Although a little too quick to link gore with horror for my liking, it rests upon wide foundations of creepiness and builds on them with a good amount of tension and urgency.

    A great example of the new wave of indie horror, Outlast isn't revolutionary or particularly terrifying, but some great jump scares and a fun, cheesy story make it well worth checking out. [Issue#241, p.72]

    If you already own the PC version, there is absolutely zero reason to purchase this again. On the other hand, Sony is releasing it for free for PS members right off the bat, which is a tough price to argue down.

    This game is amazing! I have it for both PC and now PS4. Overall this game is probably one of the most spookiest games I've played in awhile!This game is amazing! I have it for both PC and now PS4. Overall this game is probably one of the most spookiest games I've played in awhile! Also if your a PS Plus member it's free! That's the best part, even though I would buy it again if it wasnt. To be honest I first thought this game would be like the rest of the horror genre which is all action now but it isn't..it's a classic! Instead of shooting you actually have to hide which makes the game even scarier! Overall this game is great for people who like horror and challenging games or just for people that want to have some jumpscares and be spooked out! This an amazing game and of you have PS plus don't miss this opportunity! Expand

Its counterpart whistle Blower added a lot to the story I have high hopes for outlast 2 and I hope they don't let us down. Expand

    Bought outlast on ps store for around £15, i waited until dark and played with the lights off and headphones on, i can tell you this is one ofBought outlast on ps store for around £15, i waited until dark and played with the lights off and headphones on, i can tell you this is one of most scary games i have ever played, its one of them games where you literally go around crouching and checking whats behind every door and many times i have jumped out my seat or s**t myself. I am giving this a 8 because i think that the Insane mode is just too much, i played it to begin with and liked the idea of it somewhat, but i think its just a bit OTT and is designed in a way that would put gamers off, in Insane mode, if you get killed you have to start from the start, just imagine what you would do if you was in the last couple minutes and maybe a bug or a bit of bad luck meant you died (you cant fight in this game, just run and hide) so for that reason i think its a bit over the top and Insane ! - and the second reason is there a really REALLY stupid glitch that ruins the entire game, if your spotted by a enemy instead of running just mash the circle button (which means you stand-crouch again and again) and this actually disables the enemy, im serious - the enemy will not move and chase you, which means you just have to tea bag your way to safety and thats it!!!!!! 8.5/10 Expand

    Annoying as hell and am glad I didnt pay for it.

    Difficulty way too hard.

    Level design very poor

    Developer who forgets games should be fun and not ridiculously hard.

    If you like dying and repeating the same section over and over you will love it.

    If you want a fun game which doesnt make you want to smash your controller this isnt for you.
