Montreal-based Red Barrels is a newly-formed studio by industry veterans focused on creating unforgettable single-player games.
Some of the projects the developers worked on includes Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia, Far Cry 3, Splinter Cell, and Uncharted.
Check out the team’s first game, Outlast teaser trailer after the jump:
Here’s the synopsis:
“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 being 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.”
The co-founder of Red Barrels Philippe Morin said, “there are already a lot of great games out there about terrifying monsters that eat brains; we want Outlast’s to be scary because you’ll know the enemies you face still have them.”
“Our team has a lot of previous experience creating big, blockbuster games,” said co-founder David Chateauneuf. “We’re all really excited to see what kind of fear-based emotional rollercoaster we can build on our own!”
When asked for comment, a spokesperson for the Murkoff Corporation responded: “Murkoff does not comment on speculation and rumors, especially ones started by conspiracy theorists and urban myth chasers.”
Outlast is their first title, a true survival horror experience which aims to show that the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind, will be coming to PC digital download in 2013.
