Developer Red Barrels began teasing its co-op horror prequel, The Outlast Trials, way back in 2019. We've seen bits of the game since then, but not for a short while. Anyway, it's back, and this new trailer is rather gruesome, perhaps unsurprisingly for a series where you spend most of your time running away from maniacs.

There's a lot to process here, but our takeaway is that it looked rather like the 'Saw' movies in game form. We still don't know that exact form, other than the team is taking a bit of a different direction from the rest of the series with The Outlast Trials.

Here's a bit more on the game, which is getting a PC closed beta this Halloween.

"Set in the height of the Cold War era, players take on the role of test subjects abducted by the shadowy Murkoff Corporation. Imprisoned in a secret Murkoff facility, players will be thrust into a series of physical and mental ordeals, tormented by iconic characters, and challenged alone or in teams to survive with their sanity intact."
