    Official ‘Outlast’ trailer arrives in time for Halloween

    Red Barrels has released the first official, full length trailer for their first project, Outlast, and we’re officially intrigued. Earlier this month, the new Montreal-based studio teased the project, referring to it as a “true survival horror” experience. Outlast is set in Colorado (huzzah!), at the Mount Massive Asylum, which used to house the criminally insane. According to the trailer’s preface, several doctors were murdered by a patient in the 60s, and from the carnage seen within the trailer, several soldiers were recently murdered, too. Gamers play as Miles Upshur, a journalist who has set out to reveal the truth about the Asylum, which he appears to believe the Murkof Corporation is using as a secret, experimental facility. We’re the first to admit that the story it’s the most inspired, but the former Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell and Uncharted developers have put a lot of emphasis on “survival.” From the trailer, it looks as

    ‘Crysis 3’ will be available next spring

    Crytek and EA’s Crysis 3 was super-officially announced today for a spring 2013 release. In it, you’ll play as “Prophet,” who discovers that New York City’s been covered with…well, a giant dome. (All I can think here is “Simpsons did it!”) But, unlike The Simpsons, this dome has turned NYC into an actual rainforest with rivers, swamps and huge trees. Basically, it’s nothing like the NYC we know now, and you’ll need special weapons like a composite bow and special alien technology just to stay alive. Because it’s literally a jungle out there. “Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love,” said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. “Leveraging the latest CryENGINE technology, we’re able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.”
