Red Barrel Games’ survival horror title Outlast will become available on PlayStation 4 this February, and PS Plus subscribers will be able to nab the indie scare-fest free of charge, according to the game’s official Facebook page.
Though it was initially released across PC platforms last September, Outlast has remained on the lips of terrified gamers through its haunting mix of minimalism and player vulnerability. For the game, you’re tasked with exploring an abandoned psychiatric hospital as Miles Upshur, a freelance journalist with only a temperamental video camera at his disposal.
Alas, Red Barrel Games’ twisted single-player experience may not be a bastion of originality. Nevertheless, Outlast’s nightmarish mix of stealth and bona fide horror infuse the game with a palpable sense of dread, as you creep gingerly through the corridors of Mount Massive Asylum.

Elsewhere on PlayStation’s digital storefront, Sony is poised to roll out discounts on a slew of titles in the “14 for ’14” promotion. Starting today, the sale encompasses 28 titles across PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, with discounts starting at 50% (75% for PS Plus subscribers) on notable releases such as Killzone: Mercenary, Puppeteer and The Wolf Among Us.
In terms of next month’s PlayStation Plus collection, though, Outlast is slated to raise its eerie, demented head for PlayStation 4 on February 5, 2014 across North America and Europe. Tell us, do you plan to wean your way through Mount Massive Asylum? Let us know in the comments section below.
