Outlast II was originally planned to launch at the end of 2016, before being delayed to early 2017.
You play as Blake Langermann in Outlast II. 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."
Outlast II is developed by independent studio Red Barrels, which also made the first game. The studio was founded by developers who worked on the Prince of Persia, Uncharted, and Assassin's Creed franchises.
You can listen to some eerie tracks from Outlast II's soundtrack right here.
