Outlast uses the 'found footage' tactic in latest eerie trailer

New, comments

Survival horror game Outlast is taking the "found footage" approach to create a film-like horror experience, as shown in the latest trailer released today from developer Red Barrels Games.

The trailer splices real photos into the footage, creating a faux documentary feel. Text walks viewers through the events leading up to the events in Outlast, painting a gory history before plunging us straight into the heart of the game's insidious asylum.

Outlast was announced earlier this month for release on PC in 2013.
