Earlier this week, Outlast 2 developer Red Barrels released a demo for their upcoming horror game for all three platforms (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC). This demo is only available till the 1st of November, which means horror fans will have some fun for the Halloween season. Most of us will fondly remember the first outing of Outlast in 2014; the first-person thriller set in a psychiatric hospital was a huge hit with horror fans, and now Red Barrels has finally given us a taste of the anticipated sequel.

The Summary for Outlast 2:

Outlast 2 is the sequel to the acclaimed survival horror game Outlast. Set in the same universe as the first game, but with different characters and a different setting, Outlast 2 is a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets. No conflict is ever black and white.

PC gamers will find the Steam link here.

The PlayStation Vr will launch world on October the 13th, so says the Head of PlayStation Network Americas, Eric Lempel. In blog statement he wrote:

Among the holiday lineup is one of the most incredible gaming experiences ever conceived — the opportunity to battle against the evil Empire in an X-wing fighter in VR. Thanks to the talented teams at Dice, Criterion and Lucasfilm, Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-wing VR Mission will give PS VR owners a chance to experience something we’ve all dreamed about. This experience will be free for all PS4 owners of last year’s fan-favorite shooter Star Wars Battlefront when it launches on PS VR this holiday.

PlayStation VR is releasing just in time for the holiday season, hopefully Sony has enough content to keep its VR entry relevant.


And finally to our favourite game developer- Digital homicide official dropped its lawsuit against anonymous Steam users this week after Valve pulled all of its games off Steam. Not only has it dropped the lawsuits, but it’s also completely shutting its doors to further business.

Speaking with TechRaptor, Digital Homicide’s James Romine explained that Valve’s decision to remove all of the studio’s games from Steam is what did them in:

“The case dismissal was only due to financial reasons caused by the removal of our games. I believe the case was very solid. There were in excess of 140 false statements by the 11 Steam users, tens of thousands of posts harassing myself and my customers, three direct interference with written contracts with third parties by Steam users (some of which were competitors), and much more. A combined in excess of 25 reports were filed against the worst users of the 11 with no resolutions being found.”

This has literally surprised no one, in going after Steam’s customer base, Valve of course would have taken immediate action to protect its users, thus cutting off Homicide’s income. Suing people because of bad reviews is a shady move for any company to take part it, it would never look like a good thing. They also filed to get a refund on their court fee, ironic, since most of its customer base would want refunds on their awful games.

Its Jim @#$%ing Sterling son!!!

Its Jim @#$%ing Sterling son!!!

Jim Sterling of course must be reveling in smugness as we speak, after Digital Homicide also said they would drop the lawsuit against the man who “insulted” their games. Good and you Jim, we shall dance and sing with you to celebrate the end of this farce from the so called game studio.
