The tweet keeps it short and simple, informing gamers that the upcoming horror title will be dropping sooner rather than later.

So far they’ve released some alpha gameplay footage and playable demos, allowing YouTubers to demonstrate what the early goings of the game is like.
It’s still a horror survival title insofar that you will attempt to run, and hide and try to escape from pursuers, but you still won’t have much in the way of defending yourself. This isn’t Resident Evil 7.
Much of the footage centers around a husband looking for his wife after a helicopter crash. He ventures around the farm, encounters some strange occurrences and attempts to get out. The Let’s Play video demonstrations end after the main character runs through a cornfield – being chased by some crazy hillbillies – and then a demonic girl with a scythe slashes his man meat off, ensuring that if he wasn’t a eunuch beta male before… he is now.
As far as the plot is concerned, it’s hard to tell where the game will go, but it centers around an occult-like group living out in the middle of nowhere. There’s definitely some similarities to Resident Evil 7, but Outlast 2 seems to center around some sort of demonic element a lot more than the biological properties of Resident Evil.
Anyway, you can look for Outlast 2 to drop on April 25th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. If Red Barrels really wanted to shock people, though, they would slap that bad boy on the Nintendo Switch.
